Organic Garage's Future Of Cheese Launches Its Plant-Based Naturally Ripened Brie

Distribution of the highly anticipated plant-based brie has commenced and based on pre-sale demand for the product, the Company’s distributor expects a very successful retail launch.

TORONTO (BUSINESS WIRE) - Organic Garage Ltd. (TSXV: OG |OTCQX: OGGFF |FRA: 9CW1), one of Canada’s leading independent organic grocers, is pleased to announce that its plant-based food company, Future of Cheese Inc. (“Future of Cheese” or the “Company”) has launched the Company’s naturally ripened plant-based brie to retailers in Ontario. The brie is made using all-natural, organic, non-GMO ingredients. It is specially ripened using traditional aging processes developed by the Company’s globally recognized Maître Fromager and Co-Founder, Afrim Pristine, widely acclaimed as the country’s premier cheesemaker.

“With traditional cheese-making techniques and proper climate-controlled aging rooms, we have crafted an organic, all-natural ripened plant-based brie,” stated Mr. Pristine. “Every brie wheel is produced in our humidity-controlled environment for 21 days, and we are proud to expand our product line to include this world-class plant-based brie.”

The Company’s culinary team, led by Chef and Co-Founder Craig Harding and Mr. Pristine, has developed their plant-based brie using only five ingredients, and without the use of fillers, gums or starches, to produce what the Company believes is the cleanest ingredients list on the market. The brie is enclosed in a biodegradable package, designed to continue the ripening process and mature the cheese throughout its shelf lifespan, and will retail in Canada for MSRP $13.99.

“We have spent a lifetime mastering the art of cheesemaking and gleaning our culinary expertise from the best in the world,” Mr. Harding said. “And now we’re applying this knowledge to produce the world’s most exceptional plant-based cheeses, starting with our version of a traditional delicate brie, complete with a ripened rind, mild flavour and velvety smooth texture.”
