We are super excited to be bringing you the news that Daiya will soon be stocked at TheVeganKind Supermarket!
The popular North American brand has become so popular over the pond that the company recently announced a move to a larger HQ in order to keep up with growing demand. How amazing is that?
In its new home, the company aims to generate $1 billion in revenue.
“Today’s consumers are now embracing plant-based foods as a great-tasting option that promotes a healthier lifestyle,” Terry Tierney, CEO of Daiya Foods, explained in a recent statement. “We are expanding to enable our teams to continue to do the work that will further surprise and delight consumers around the world and accommodate our aggressive hiring growth plans over the next 2-5 years.”
“Our new headquarters represents a long-term investment in the future – not only for the Daiya brand but also for plant-based foods overall. Most importantly, it enables us to continue pioneering our delicious plant-based products for every part of the day and bringing the incredible benefits of a plant-forward lifestyle to more people around the globe.”
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
"Friends for over 20 years, Andre and Greg share a passion for music, ideation and a plant-based lifestyle. The same passion inspired them to create a delicious dairy-free alternative made entirely from plants.
It started with a simple belief: plant-based living was better for their health, better for the planet and better for animal welfare. As it turns out, Andre and Greg weren’t alone in their dream. Millions of others were wishing for the same delicious outcome.
Their perseverance paid off and Daiya Cheddar Style and Mozzarella Style Shreds debuted in 2009 at the Natural Products Expo West. Consumers raved — and plant-based dairy innovation changed forever.
Today, as millions more demand plant-based equivalents to their favorite foods, that spirit of innovation is still a part of Daiya’s DNA. In fact, thanks to our amazing R&D team, we now have over 30 great tasting, 100% plant-based alternatives to dairy. And we feel like we’re just getting started.
We’re innovative, we’re compassionate and we love food. We honestly just can’t wait to keep bringing you more!
Andre, Greg & the whole Daiya team"

“I could put these on a cheese tray at a party and have them taste it … THEN tell them it’s Daiya because they wouldn’t believe it at first.”
