The brand announced the undisclosed investment and said it would lead the company in 2020 to introduce new products in the category. Miyoko Creamery is a registered B-Corp, a designation of business sustainability. In their statements, the couple said they each identify with the company’s mission to promote an ethical world and to move the world from animal agriculture to plant-based solutions.
Said DeGeneres of the brand, “Being kind to one another is not just about people, it extends to animals as well.Portia and I have been customers of Miyoko’s Creamery for several years now and their cheeses and vegan butter have become staples in our home. As we learned more about the mission behind the products and about Miyoko herself, we knew this was a special and exciting company that we wanted to support.”
“We are particularly impressed about their holistic perspective to the challenge of moving our society away from animal agriculture.They understand the big picture — that farmers are part of the solution and require our support to transition away from current practices – it takes this holistic view to transition our world to plant-based diets,” her wife de Rossi added.
Miyoko Schinner, the founder and CEO of the brand, also gave a statement on their investment, “We have long admired and appreciated how Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have used their platforms to advocate for a better world. With their support, Miyoko’s Creamery will be better equipped to do our part in helping to further this important shared mission.”
