The Future of Cheese’s initial line of products will be produced domestically in a state-of-the-art HACCP certified facility located in Southern Ontario.
Organic Garage Ltd., one of Canada’s leading independent organic grocers, is pleased to announce that its newly acquired plant-based food company, Future of Cheese Inc. (“Future of Cheese” or the “Company”) has successfully entered into a commercial manufacturing agreement with Ontario based Flamaglo Foods Ltd.
The Company has been working closely with the experienced team at Flamaglo Foods over the last two months at their HACCP certified facility to ensure all aspects of the manufacturing process can and will be achieved utilizing the highest and strictest level of quality and controls. This includes ingredient sourcing, batch testing, product manufacturing, packaging, storage and fulfillment. All recipes and formulations will remain proprietary to the Company, and Flamaglo Foods has executed a strict confidentiality agreement related to the production and manufacturing of Future of Cheese products.
“Selecting a domestic manufacturing partner with the highest level of proven experience, knowledge and success in the plant-based food sector is a significant milestone for the company, and allows us to commence production of our initial line of products with confidence,” stated Jen Wojtaszek, President of Future of Cheese.
Flamaglo Foods is a family-owned company with deep roots in the manufacturing and production of plant-based dairy alternatives, recognized since the launch of the founder’s first consumer brand, Yoso, in 1998. Yoso currently sells their products in more than 2,000 retail locations across Canada and has a well-established distribution network with retailers and distributors across the country.
Francis Lo, Co-Founder of Yoso and Flamaglo Foods commented, “My team and I are excited about the collaboration with Future of Cheese, and we look forward to working together to help transform their well-developed vision and recipes into exceptional products ready for the rapidly growing plant-based consumer market.”
