Armored Fresh launches Oat Milk Cheddar Cheese slices at craft burger chain, Bareburger

February 2, 2024

Armored Fresh, a food-tech company specializing in alternative dairy products, has announced a new partnership with US East Coast restaurant chain, Bareburger. The chain is highlighting the partnership with a new and improved menu that calls out Armored Fresh’s zero-dairy Oat Milk Cheddar Cheese as an add-on to any vegan, vegetarian, or meat-based menu item. In addition to offering the deliciously melty slices as an option for any order, Bareburger is launching two new menu creations crafted with the Oat Milk Cheddar Slices, including the Armored Fresh Melt, and the Impossible Standard.

The collaboration between Armored Fresh and Bareburger was made in an effort to expand sustainable impact through a creamy zero-dairy cheese that tastes and melts like dairy and has a similar price point. Traditionally, plant-based cheeses have been reserved for vegans and vegetarians. However, this unique new partnership is expanding the reach of zero-dairy cheeses to flexitarians and omnivores alike, based on the incredible taste and melting properties of Armored Fresh cheese that is loved by all. With Armored Fresh Oat Milk Cheddar Cheese Slices, Bareburger is making it easier than ever to make a healthier and more sustainable cheese choice, regardless of if you eat meat or not.

"Our mission has always been to make a positive impact on human and planetary health through delicious zero-dairy foods, however in order to achieve this we must appeal to all consumers, not only those who subscribe to vegan or plant-based lifestyles," said Rudy Yoo, Founder & CEO Armored Fresh. "While it may be an untraditional approach, our new partnership with Bareburger demonstrates that our delicious zero-dairy cheeses are a perfect option for everyone. We’re thrilled to find partners like Bareburger who share our vision of a healthier, more sustainable future for all!"

The decision to incorporate Armored Fresh into the Bareburger menu was ignited by Bareburger’s Head Chef, Misha Levin. Known for his focus on quality ingredients and prudent standards when it comes to taste, the new menu items were created by Chef Levin himself. Additional details include:

"Armored Fresh truly changed my mind about plant-based cheese," said Chef Levin. "The first time I tried it, I really couldn't tell the difference between dairy-made cheese and Armored Fresh cheese. Having a dairy-free cheese immediately get my culinary brain working was honestly a first for me. I loved experimenting with recipes to find the perfect way to showcase this incredible cheese on our menu. It's a delicious cheese that I’m confident everyone will enjoy, dairy-free or not!"
