Philadelphia Cream Cheese is launching a plant-based version of its signature spread.

The non-dairy version is now available at grocery stores in Atlanta, Houston, Miami and other locations in the southeast.

A wider rollout is planned for summer 2023.

The new variety is made with coconut oil, bean protein, and other ingredients.

And it’s designed to mimic the experience of traditional cream cheese.

The brand’s owner, Kraft Heinz, has been focusing on driving growth by innovating within its powerhouse products like Philadelphia.

That includes launching plant-based alternatives, where the company sees room for growth.
