What is Everything Cheeze?

Everything Cheeze is a Grated Cashew Cheese Alternative.

Everything Cheeze is free from dairy, gluten, and soy. It's a highly differentiated multi-use product that can be used in lieu of Parmesan on foods like pizza, pasta, or popcorn, or simply hydrated with hot water and mixed (blended) into a creamy Queso, Ricotta, or Mac & Cheese Sauce in 30 seconds.

Our consumers love the umami flavor of Everything Cheeze. It's made with seven recognizable ingredients, which naturally make it taste cheesy!

Everything Cheeze is inherently sustainable. It is a dry and shelf-stable product. It's made with clean ingredients like fair trade organic cashews that are carbon negative when harvested and organic black pepper, and organic onion, garlic, and turmeric.

Our hydrate at home model mitigates the avoidable environmental and economic impacts of shipping water and refridgeration. Each year, the United States grocery channel emits 25% of refrigerants (a greenhouse gas known as hydrofluorocarbons), which can be up to 9,000 times more impactful than carbon dioxide. Everything Cheeze was designed as a sustainable, clean, and delicious product for all consumers to enjoy. It has positive impact on the environment, mitigating uneccessary greenhouse gas emissions and pioneering a new era of cheese.

Sustainability

Everything Cheeze is inherently sustainable. It's a dry and shelf-stable product with a multi-month shelf life. It's made with clean ingredients like fair trade organic cashews and organic black pepper, onion, garlic, and turmeric.

Everything Cheeze is a multi-use product. Simply add water and mix it into a creamy Queso, Ricotta, or Mac & Cheese. This hydrate at home model mitigates avoidable environmental and economic impacts of shipping water and refrigeration. Each year, the United States grocery channel emits 25% of refrigerants (a greenhouse gas known as hydrofluorocarbons), which can be up to 9,000 times more impactful than carbon dioxide.

Social Impact

Our cashews are fair trade, organic, and ethically sourced from a community-driven social impact enterprise in Africa. We only use fair trade organic cashews sourced directly from farmers because we seek to positively impact their economic security. Our sourcing decisions also decrease our products footprint.

The majority of cashews grown in Africa are exported to India or Vietnam to be shelled. Cashews are five times larger with their shells, increasing the cost of freight and therefore, increasing the overall footprint of the nut. This process also exports jobs, lowering farmers economic return.
