Another opportunity awaits in the Green Origin® line of products, exclusively available from Performance Foodservice. We are excited to join forces with Northland Cheese® to introduce another plant-based food item in our Green Origin® brand. Plant-based mozzarella cheese shreds are now available in 4/2.5-lb. shred bags (10-lb./case).
Green Origin® Plant-based Mozzarella Cheese Shreds will help any operator gain entrance into the plant-based world. With just over 60 percent of U.S. households currently buying plant-based products, and with the vegan cheese market estimated at $2.5 billion in 2021, and predicted to grow almost 13 percent by 2030, plant-based cheeses like Green Origin® Plant-based Mozzarella Cheese Shreds are here to stay!
Green Origin® Plant-based Mozzarella Cheese Shreds are an excellent non-dairy choice for customers with dairy sensitivity, or those electing to consume a plant-based diet. These cheese shreds offer a plant-based alternative that most closely matches the desirable characteristics found in natural mozzarella; melt, mouth feel, and appearance. Green Origin® Plant-based Mozzarella Shreds are ideal as a pizza topping to replace natural mozzarella, or as a fresh shredded cheese substitute for other plant-based entrée alternatives. The ratio of Green Origin Plant-based Mozzarella Cheese Shreds is 1:1 compared to a milk-based product. These cheese shreds take a slightly higher oven temperature to melt, depending on the type of oven used, and result in great flavor and texture in every bite!
Whether your customers are seeking ways to diversify their menus with on-trend plant-based options, or they are feeling more adventurous with their menus, Green Origin® Plant-based Mozzarella Cheese Shreds will not disappoint. Our customers will feel good about serving a plant-based product that is low in calories, and zero trans fat. The natural appearance of these cheese shreds, and better melt ability affords them to be used in many American and ethnic recipes, from Italian to Hispanic.
