NewFields is supporting the skyrocketing demand for plant-based cheeses by assembling an exceptional leadership team, making strong investments in equipment and innovation. The article acknowledges our response to the exploding retail demand. 

This is about dairy but applies to plant-based. “We were almost overwhelmed by the retail explosion that occurred almost a year ago with the pandemic,” President and CEO Steve Snyder told the publication. “We made some adjustments to de-bottleneck equipment in our dairy business. We had made investments the previous year to handle normal demand, but we had no way of anticipating the kind of increase we saw. We got innovative with new forms — things like club-size packs — that otherwise would have gone to the deli. We do a lot of dry cheese products for pasta. Parmesan went through the roof with everyone eating at home.” 

As Snyder concluded, “Plant-based cheese is a brave new world now. It’s quite tasty. We believe we are better suited than anyone to be good here. We’ve spent over 20 years working on how to make imitation cheese taste good.”
