Started by Miyoko Schinner, California-based Miyoko’s Kitchen has been a major leader in the plant-based food space, creating delectable high-quality alternatives to dairy like cheese and butter. Miyoko’s products have quickly proven to be customer favorites, allowing the brand to expand their market in popular retail grocers like Trader Joe’s … and now there’s some exciting news about the grocery chain and the plant-based brand …

Miyoko’s European Style Cultured Vegan Butter will now be available at all Trader Joe’s locations! The plant-based butter that melts and browns like dairy butter has readily become a favorite among bakers since hitting many Trader Joe’s shelves last year, and the packaging recently received a revamp to become plastic-free. As if this were not all good enough, Miyoko’s Vegan Butter is also organic, non-GMO, cholesterol-, gluten-, and soy-free, and free of palm oil! For conscious consumers, you know palm oil-free plant-based butters are very few and far between!


But that’s not all … Miyoko’s Kitchen also creates yummy cream cheese spread alternatives that come in flavors “Plainly Classic,” “Sensational Scallion,” and “Un-Lox Your Dreams,” the latter of which will be arriving at Trader Joe’s by the end of the month! The plant-based cream cheese alternative is also organic, non-GMO, and free of cholesterol, gluten, soy, and palm oil — win-win!

We like the direction the Miyoko’s-Trader Joe’s partnership is heading. By making quality plant-based options readily available to a large customer base, these brands are helping shape the future of food into becoming more plant-based, which is good news for animals, the environment, and our own health.
