“Spero offers delicious and affordable plant-based cheese products that are coming to The Fresh Market.”
Spero Cheese is proud to announce that it will be launching some of its plant-based products at Fresh Market. This will increase awareness of healthier, tastier, more sustainable and more affordable dairy alternatives.
People want plant-based dairy products, but today plant-based dairy products are prohibitively expensive due to the use of nuts and others as the main ingredient. Spero is a plant-based dairy technology company on a mission to not only provide great tasting, healthy products with simple ingredients, but also to make those products more sustainable and affordable. At Spero, they make their dairy products from seeds, not nuts or soy or GMO protein. Almonds, cashews and other nuts make up a large part of the dairy alternatives in the industry today. However, based on the current price, they cannot create comparable products with dairy products because they are too expensive and difficult to scale. They take too much time, space, water and human labor. Conversely, seeds are estimated to be seven to eight times cheaper and grow fifty to seventy times faster than nuts.
Using evolving ingredients and cutting-edge technology, Spero aims to make plant-based dairy products less expensive than traditional dairy products and to mainstream dairy alternatives. Phaedra Randolph, Founder and CEO of Spero, says, “We’re doing something radical that no one has tried yet. People have tried plant-based dairy products, but no one has tried to bring the prices of plant-based dairy products down to the same prices, or even cheaper, than animal dairy products. She adds, “We’re so proud of our simple ingredient list, filled with probiotics and nutrient-rich sunflower seeds. Consumers shouldn’t have to sacrifice taste when making healthier food choices.
Spero launches three products on The Fresh Market:
The Original Sunflower Cream Cheese: is made from simple, clean ingredients like sunflower seeds, water, probiotic cultures and has a creamy, classic flavor. Eat this for a tasty Philadelphia cream cheese swap!
Goat Cheese Alternative: “Plant-based” goat cheese tastes so incredibly similar to animal-based goat cheese that you would have to taste it to believe it!
They are all made with simple, natural ingredients plus antioxidants and probiotics. In addition, sunflowers use much less water, air and soil than nuts and dairy products. It is plant-based, keto-friendly, and allergen-friendly.
Spero’s plant-based protein is packed with essential nutrients that give you energy and help your body feel supported. Additionally, their products contain vitamin E and vitamins, as well as minerals like selenium, magnesium, zinc, and B vitamins.
Sustainability is also a priority at Spero. Spero chooses simple and minimal ingredients that require as little water as possible. Their key ingredient, sunflower seeds, uses up to 96% less water than walnuts. Additionally, since sunflowers are their main ingredient, Spero uses 97% less land than cashews to produce, which can save forests and protect trees. Spero also aims to keep our air pure, clean and safe by using sunflowers, which emit 99% less CO2/CH4 than dairy products.
