Vegan Cheese Maker Is Company of the Year

Written by PETA | December 20, 2010

And the winner of PETA’s coveted 2010 Company of the Year Proggy Award (“Proggy” is for “progress”) is … Daiya Foods Inc., the maker of mouthwatering, melty vegan cheese shreds. Applause, applause!

Daiya nondairy cheese has always been delicious, but now it’s also widely available in restaurants and retail stores including Whole Foods. Daiya’s popularity grew by leaps and bounds in 2010, proving that people “eat up” great-tasting vegan cheese. Daiya Foods Inc. deserves accolades for creating a gooey, stretchy cheese that pleases people’s taste buds but doesn’t harm animals.

Well done, Daiya! You can support this award-winning company by using Daiya products in your favorite recipes.

Each year, PETA gives Proggy Awards to innovative, animal-friendly companies, people, and products. With all the great vegan food, groundbreaking animal testing alternatives, progressive retailers, and animal-friendly gaming that these awards recognize, it’s obvious that the welfare of animals is on just about everyone’s mind.

    Where I can find this stuff in Spain? It,s pretty difficult to find vegan ingredients at supermarkets here and when I find them are too expensive, thank you very much in advance 🙂

    I’m so gladto hear this! I tried this cheese in Amy’s Non-Gluten Non-Lactose Mac and Cheese, and loved it! This company is a blessing to those like myself, with Lactose Intolerance!

    Daiya is great stuff! Pizza was the hardest thing to let go when I went vegan. Wish I had this stuff years ago!

    Daiya is so amazing I can’t even believe it. If you have never tried this, you do not know what you’re missing. I make pita pizzas with it all the time, and grilled “cheese” with the cheddar flavour. Have made quesadillas and tacos using Daiya as well. And I’m proud that this is a Canadian invention 🙂
