COOLGREENS TO TRIAL MOTIF FOODWORKS’ PLANT-BASED CHEESE
Innovating plant-based cheese developed by Boston-based Motif FoodWorks is being tested by the healthy fast-casual brand Coolgreens.
Starting on November 15th, the plant-based cheese will only be offered at the Coolgreens location in Delray Beach, Florida.
The non-vegan Chicken Fresca sandwich, Southwest salad, and Coolgreen’s famous Avocado Crunch sandwich will all be available with Motif FoodWorks plant-based cheese.

According to Motif, their invention has the same stretch, melt, and creamy flavor as regular dairy cheese.
Although the components of the vegan product have not yet been made public, Motif said in 2021 that it had gained unique access to cutting-edge food technology that “have the potential to change” how consumers perceive plant-based meat and cheese.
The University of Guelph’s prolamin technology, which uses plant-based components, was licensed by Motif for use in its cheese.
Motif is improving the texture of non-dairy cheese and enables melting, bubbling and stretching properties comparable to that of animal-based cheese.
“Today’s plant-based meat and cheese alternatives lack the pleasure associated with eating the real thing. We want to change that at Motif,” Stefan Baier, Motif’s Head of Food Science, said in a statement last year.
In order to scale its cutting-edge plant-based food technology, the business has raised $345M.
Motif and Coolgreens previously collaborated to test Motif BeefWorksTM Plant-Based Burger products at the chain’s eateries.
The brief test was a huge hit, and customer comments are said to have helped Motif refine the offering before going on sale.
“We believe in offering our guests food that energizes and makes them feel better, while also being full of flavor,” said Coolgreens President and Chief Operations Officer Todd Madlener.
“Motif shares that belief, so we’re excited to partner with them again and give Coolgreens fans a sneak peek at what we believe is the best plant-based cheese coming to the market.”
