In Defense of Animals and Miyoko’s Creamery Join Forces to Host the Cheesiest Holiday Giveaway of All Time

Bay-Area Based Animal Protection Organization Teams Up with the “Queen of Vegan Cheese” to Give Away a Year’s Worth of Award-Winning Vegan Cheeses!

San Francisco, Calif. (December 3, 2020)In Defense of Animals has teamed up with Miyoko’s Creamery to give away $500 worth of vegan cheese to show appreciation for compassionate animal advocates and plant-based cheese enthusiasts alike this holiday season.

“The dairy industry is notoriously cruel and unsustainable, so we’re thrilled to have partnered with Miyoko’s Creamery to help spread some cruelty-free love this holiday season with a giveaway of plant-based dairy products that are sure to please even the biggest skeptics,” said Julie Massa, from In Defense of Animals. “These plant-based alternatives are the future of a sustainable food system, and prove we can have our cheese and eat it too without causing harm.”

Since launching in 2014, Miyoko’s Creamery has introduced a number of plant-based dairy products that have set the bar for the vegan dairy industry and earned its founder, Miyoko Schinner, the title of “Queen of Vegan Cheese.”

Miyoko’s award-winning “Phenomenally Vegan” products range from artisanal cheese wheels and shredded and sliced cheeses to spreads, mozzarella, butter and cream cheese that are made entirely from plants, with no fillers, additives, GMOs or artificial ingredients. They’re created using traditional creamery cultures, age-old cheesemaking techniques, and modern technology to create the best vegan cheese on the market.



These plant-based alternatives support a compassionate and sustainable food system that eliminates animals and is better for the environment, producing 98% less greenhouse gasses than dairy production does.

One lucky supporter will win a $500 gift card to Miyoko’s Creamery that can be used online to splurge on award-winning, plant-based cheeses. 

“Miyoko’s Creamery is thrilled to team up with In Defense of Animals to make the holiday season merry and bright for animal advocates and cheese-lovers alike, said Miyoko Schinner, Founder of Miyoko’s Creamery.
