What do you call a cheese that isn’t yours?

Nacho cheese.

What do you call a cheese that isn’t technically a cheese and can be enjoyed by everyone?

Vegan cheese, of course!

That’s the last cheesy joke, we promise.

With the rise of vegan and plant-based diets it’s more important than ever to make sure your menu offerings are inclusive as well as delicious, and let’s face it – cheese improves pretty much any dish it’s added to. It’s also one of the nation’s favourite foods. Astonishingly we munch our way through 125g every week on average, that’s a whopping 6.5kg per person every year!

Vegan cheese has in the past been associated with poor flavours and textures, but we have come a long way since then. Modern vegan cheese options certainly give traditional dairy cheeses a run for their money and varieties include cheddar, mozzarella and cream cheese as well as specially blended flavours like tomato and basil, hot pepper, smoked and herb.

Perfect for topping plant-based pizzas or comforting dairy-free mac and cheese, sprinkling on jacket potatoes, satisfying sandwich fillings and more, we have selected a range of vegan cheese which looks, tastes and melts just like the real thing.

Commercial kitchens need to be aware of changes in the ways we eat in the UK and developing dishes which can be enjoyed by those with special dietary requirements is becoming increasingly important. Such an extensive choice of vegan cheese means you can get creative with your vegan dish development and offer genuine options – something that your dairy-free customers will appreciate.

The team at Terry Foods are product development specialists and can help you take any guesswork out of using vegan cheese, helping you to create dishes which will be popular and profitable. If you’d like to know more about our products, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss your requirements.
