Artisanal vegan cheese brand Treeline has doubled production capacity at its New York-based production facility.
Retail and foodservice-focused site Perishable News reports that Treeline’s expansion includes new equipment to make cup-filling production lines more efficient as well as new single-serve vegan cheese packaging made for meal kit delivery brands, grab-and-go foods, and airline meals. Additionally, the Hudson Valley brand has launched a new product, Premium New York Style Plain, a vegan cream cheese made from cashews.
“Our recent capital expansion reflects our commitment to the growing non-dairy cheese market,” said Treeline CEO and founder Michael Schwarz in a statement. “It enables Treeline to maintain its perfect record of meeting ever-increasing demand from existing retail partners, while adding new retailers nationwide.”

Who said cheese doesn’t grow on trees? Ours does! ⠀ ⠀ Treeline cheeses are totally dairy-free – made from the finest Brazilian cashew nuts, fermented to perfection, just like dairy cheese. They are non-GMO, gluten-free, and kosher. We use no added oils, particularly not palm oil. ⠀ ⠀ For the good of the planet, all its inhabitants, try this “Cheese that Grows on Trees” ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #lovefood #gloobyfood #plantbased #iamwellandgood #beautifulcuisines #tastingtable #bestofvegan #cashewcheese #vegancheeseplate #cleaneats #nondairy #healthyfood #dairyfree #huffposttaste #beautifuleats #buzzfeast #goop #treelinecheese #vegansofig #vegancheese #kosher #healthyfood #nutrition #buzzfeast #feedfeedvegan #tastingtable #thekitchn #thechalkboardeats #treelinecheese
Treeline, is currently available in more than 3,000 stores nationwide, including major supermarkets like Kroger and Whole Foods. The brand specializes in soy-free, kosher, and paleo-friendly probiotic vegan cheeses made from non-GMO cashews using traditional cheese-making methods. According to the website, the brand is vegan due to dairy’s impact on health as well as the treatment of mother cows and their calves.
Thanks to the inclusion of the bacteria L. Acidophilus, Treeline’s nondairy cheeses are fermented and have a naturally tangy flavor similar to dairy cheese. Its new single-serving vegan cheese cups are already being used by plant-based meal kit brand, Purple Carrot.
According to a recent study conducted by leading global sales research company Nielsen on behalf of the Plant Based Foods Association, sales of vegan cheese grew by 43 percent to $124 million last year, ranking behind plant-based coffee creamer, and yogurt.
