As of today Tesco have launched their own range of Free From vegan cheese. The line of products is aimed to go in direct competition with Sainsbury’s vegan cheese they launched late last year and to match the large surge in people moving to a vegan lifestyle.
The range offers nine different flavours along with sliced, grated and blocks of cheese.
The vegan cheese is supplied to Tesco by Bute Island Foods who also provide the Sainsbury’s line and are the creators of well known products such as Sheese and VeganDeli. Bute Island Foods are renowned for only producing and manufacturing vegan foods, and as you can expect, they’re going from strength to strength with the huge recent surge in veganism.
