Field Roast recently announced that its Chao Creamery dairy-free cheese line is expanding. In addition to new plant-based slice flavors, Chao Creamery now delivers dairy-free cheese shreds.
“We took the fan-favorite Chao Creamery Creamy Original and expanded it into new flavors and forms that give consumers even more flavor potential in the kitchen,” said Dan Curtin, president of Greenleaf Foods (maker of Field Roast). Chao products are coconut-based and made with a special fermented tofu ingredient that provides an unmatched buttery, umami bite.
Field Roast’s new Chao varieties include Chao Smoked Original Slices, Chao Spicy Original Slices, Chao Creamy Original Block, Chao Creamy Original Shreds, and Chao Mexican Style Blend Shreds. In the coming weeks, the new Chao Creamy Original Shreds will start rolling onto shelves at more than 1,000 Walmart locations. Meijer, Hannaford, Food Lion, and other US retailers are expected to start carrying the items later this year with an estimated retail price of $5.99. Prices may vary by location.
