Parma! – Shaking Up The Vegan Cheese Category Since 2004!


Get ready cheese lovers, with award-winning Parma! you can choose from a deliciously nutritious selection of dairy-free, protein-rich condiments that are perfect for main dishes, salads, pizza, and more with vegan parmesan!

A simple salad may be transformed into a carnival of flavors, a plate of veggies can be transformed into a delicious stroll through a countryside garden, and a simple dish of pasta can be transformed into a savory work of art with the addition of the perfect condiment. And probably no condiment encompasses as many cuisines and cultural backgrounds as traditional Italian Parmesan cheese.

Unfortunately, parmesan cheese has always been one of the most challenging small luxuries to give up for vegans or anyone eating a dairy-free, low-calorie, or vegan diet. If only someone, somewhere, could develop a dairy-free parmesan cheese substitute that is so deliciously authentic that even the pickiest cheese aficionados would never again miss the traditional version!

Fortunately, someone has. Welcome to Parma!, the next revolution in the rapidly expanding vegan cheese market!

Parma! was founded in Oregon just over 15 years ago by Shannon Schnibbe, the founder of Sister River Foods (Tofurky founder Seth Tibbott is an ongoing advisor). It was created in response to a rapidly expanding demand in the vegetarian market for a ground-breaking allergen-free parmesan alternative.

Parma! is a plant-based umami superfood line of convenient and affordable products that are Paleo and Keto-friendly, a complete protein, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, and Certified Kosher. Parma! is made up of four delectably distinct varieties, including Better Than Bacon Parma!, which was chosen as VegNews magazine’s Favorite Bacon-Flavored Product in 2017.

Additionally, each of the four raw nut and seed-based Parma! tastes are made with whole, unprocessed ingredients, are low in sodium, heart-healthy, rich in trace minerals and vital B vitamins, abundant in healthy amino acids, and a great source of good fats.

Parma! launched an ambitious new website late last month with simple navigation, brightly colored photos and graphics, exciting new recipes, and practical purchase alternatives. The company is currently experiencing its most successful phase of growth to date in terms of both distribution and revenue.

A World of Flavor

Parma! is perfect for consumers who care about the environment, vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, and all health-conscious eaters. It is offered in health stores around the country as well as on the brand-new website, Amazon, VitaCost, and other online merchants. Parma!, in contrast to some other vegan cheese substitutes, has also gained the favor of popular cheese connoisseurs who are willing to forgo regular cheese in favor of a healthier alternative that boasts authentic flavor, scent, and texture.

Parma!, which is available in 3.5 and 7-ounce bottles, goes well with pasta, softly steamed vegetables, pizza, salads, potatoes, avocado toast, popcorn, and a variety of other appetizers, main courses, and desserts. Please visit the website for suggested recipes.
