Forager Project, an organic, plant-based and family-owned creamery that crafts dairy-free foods, unveiled its new Honey Alternative Cashewmilk Yogurt (a 2023 NEXTY Awards finalist) along with innovation for its family-friendly line of cashewmilk yogurt pouches including a new Peach flavor and 4-pack size at Natural Products Expo West.

The new Honey Alternative flavor is 100% bee-free, utilizing fruit juices and organic cane sugar instead of real honey to replicate honey’s sweet and distinctive flavor, the company says. It also unveiled Peach as a fourth flavor option for its line of cashewmilk yogurt pouches, which join Berry Berry, Strawberry and Mango as a quick and easy vegan snack. 

Co-founded by Stephen Williamson in 2013, the Forager Project uses its own production, sourcing, and recipe development to create its yogurts, sour cream, kefirs, cheese, smoothies and milks.

“We’ve always embraced the importance of where food comes from and how it’s made, and since bees are the ultimate pollinator we wanted to do something that keeps all bees pollinating for the health of our ecosystem,” CEO Williamson says. “That’s why we ideated a bee-free solution to provide consumers with the honey flavor they know and love that allows bees to forage and pollinate as they please. We’re proud that our Honey Alternative Cashewmilk Yogurt allows native pollinators and the planet to thrive.” 

Forager Project’s Honey Alternative Cashewmilk Yogurt is available at King Soopers, Fred Meyer, Mom’s Organic Market, and Market Basket stores for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $6.99 per 24-ounce container.

After seeing success with its portfolio, including winning Good Housekeeping’s 2022 Health Snack Awards, the company added the sweet and tangy taste of Peach to its kid- and parent-approved pouches. It is available at  Whole Foods Market with an SRP of $1.99.

Additionally, the San Francisco-based company launched dairy-free cashewmilk pouches in 4-packs in Strawberry and Berry Berry, which are offered for a SRP of $6.99.
