About

The mission at Daiya Foods is simple: Make and provide dairy alternatives that not only taste great, but also provide those familiar dairy qualities — stretching, bubbling, mouthfeel — that makes the food group desirable to so many. Dave Savage, the company’s Consumer Relations Manager, found the brand to be a perfect fit following his conversion to veganism. “A lot of people right now just cannot consume dairy,” Savage explains. “That’s one of the major markets right now because they just cannot tolerate it and there’s different levels of tolerance, from people who have a very strong reaction, to people who just feel mildly uncomfortable. This stuff just tastes really good, and happens to be dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free. So, it’s not a compromise. It’s not like if I have to have it on my pizza, I’ll have this. This stuff is amazing.” Visit the Daiya Foods website. Dave Savage originally appeared on Green is Good on May 19, 2014.
