  • Responsibly Sourced Ingredients

    Responsible sourcing is a fundamental principle that guides our operations. We prioritize transparency by working directly with farmers and suppliers who share our values of putting people and the planet first. Our key ingredient, the humble cashew, is organically farmed, rain-fed, and meets SMETA standards for Ethical Trade. We source our cashews from a single partner located in the rainforests of Vietnam, ensuring consistency and quality while supporting a local community.

  • palm oil free

    Palm oil is found in many of the foods we eat, causing an insatiable demand for it over the past decade. This has fueled rampant deforestation and an increase in carbon emissions, resulting in devastating consequences on local communities, the wild habitats of endangered species, and our planet as a whole. At Miyoko’s, we strive to put forth the highest quality, sustainable, and compassionate products. In doing so, we intentionally avoid the use of palm oil in our recipes. Instead, we turn to other vegetable oils that we can source responsibly with the planet, people, and animals in mind.

  • The Highest Standards

    We take pride in our ingredients. We know the quality of our ingredients plays a crucial role in creating delicious, sustainable products. There's a long list of things we never consider for our recipes such as soy, gums, and palm oil, among others. Being certified organic is just the start of our high standards, and we always look to source from farmers who go above and beyond by implementing regenerative practices to promote biodiversity and soil health.

Fixing Our Food System

  • Packaging Strategy

    One of the biggest areas for improvement in food? Packaging. Especially plastics. We know we have a lot of work to do here, and are fully committed to taking action. Our goal is to create a circular economy to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, the use of virgin plastics in our packaging. Currently, we are investigating long-term solutions for compostable and reusable alternatives. While we work towards achieving new sustainable packaging solutions, we are taking active steps to improve our impact on the U.S. waste system by implementing the How2Recycle Label on all of our products to clearly communicate recycling instructions to our consumers.

  • Upcycling Ingredients

    Producing any product always results in a certain amount of waste. Finding ways to upcycle these pieces from production is a great way to combat our waste output. In 2022 we partnered with Renewal Mill to bring new life to our end-of-the-run butter in their line of climate-friendly, vegan, and gluten-free cookies. In just the first few production runs, our upcycled butter has already created an impact— saving an estimated 5,285 lbs of CO2e from being emitted and 220,500 gal of water from going to waste.

  • Partnering with Replate

    While 40% of food produced never gets eaten, 42 million people in the U.S. experience food insecurity. At Miyoko's, we are committed to reducing food waste by ensuring every cheese wheel and butter block we produce makes it into a meal, not a landfill. We've partnered with Replate and Too Good To Go to give our products another chance to nourish our communities and reduce the complex environmental, social, and economic issues of food waste. Since we started working with Replate in May 2021, we've donated 292,692.9 lbs of food, amounting to 80,136,389 gal of water saved, 243,911 meals served, and 600,020 lbs of Co2 diverted.
