Vevan Foods, a division of Fairfield, N.J.-based Schuman Cheese, added Vevan Marinated Mozza-Bites to its line of plant-based “cheeses.” Vevan Foods says the offering takes the artisan plant-based “cheese” experience to a new level, with bite-size cubes of creamy, dairy-free Mozza marinated in an aromatic blend of herbed oil and spices.

With this latest extension of its dairy-free line, Vevan Foods says it is filling a gap in product innovation where plant-based consumers are often left out or left behind.

“Over the last few years, the demand for vegan options has accelerated, and we’re proud to expand our dairy-free ‘cheese’ options to provide more variety to consumers for their entertaining needs,” says Keith Schuman, business unit lead for Vevan Foods. “Marinated Mozza-Bites are the latest example of how we’re branching out and continually exploring new ways to be more inclusive of plant-based and flexitarian eaters — without sacrificing on taste and texture.”

Offered in two varieties, the Marinated Mozza-Bites will come packaged in 8.5-ounce cups. Individual units are expected to retail between $5.99 to $7.49, dependent on retailer, Vevan Foods says.
