Plant-based cheese maker expands in South San Francisco


SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO — A plant-based cheesemaker is set to expand its Bay Area operations with a new lease in South San Francisco.

Nobell Foods, a startup specializing in making cheese from plant-based milk proteins, has opened a new office building at 700 Gateway Blvd. in South San Francisco, according to Cushman & Wakefield, a commercial real estate firm that arranged the lease.

South San Francisco-based Nobell Foods has leased 64,200 square feet in a new office building, Cushman & Wakefield reported.

“We are excited to be a part of Nobell Foods’ growth as they move into their new South San Francisco headquarters,” said Marc Pope, executive vice president of Cushman & Wakefield.

Nobell Foods has leased space in a building that is part of Gateway of Pacific, a new life sciences and technology campus being developed by Biomed Realty Trust that will total 2.2 million square feet when complete.

“South San Francisco is recognized as the birthplace of biotechnology,” said Gary Boitano, senior director of Cushman & Wakefield. Boitano added that South San Francisco is “one of the most prestigious biotech clusters in the world.”

Nobell Foods was founded in 2016, according to the Crunchbase website.

“Our cheese expands, melts and tastes just as good as cows and goats without the animals,” explains Nobell Foods in a post on its website. The company added that its efforts aim to support a “more humane and sustainable food system”.
