At least two vegan cheeses will be added to Waitrose‘s summer vegan expansion.
Popular dairy-free mylk brand, Koko, will be the company supplying the supermarket with a mature cheddar & soft cheese spread.
Waitrose‘s expansion is set to launch on 4 June, where they will be adding 50 new vegan-friendly products & ingredients to their range and also adding a dedicated vegan section in their stores.
Visitors to the recent Bristol Vegfest were given a pre-launch sample of the new cheeses, with reviews being mostly positive.
Going loko over Koko
All of Koko products are lactose and soya free, but the cheeses will also have added calcium and vitamins D & B12.
Koko currently sell coconut mylks, oil, butter and award winning yoghurts. Using freshly picked coconuts from their family owned grove in Indonesia, Koko do not use monkeys or exploit any animals in their business.
Did you know? Koko Dairy Free Original & Calcium is rich in fibre and matches conventional semi skimmed cow’s milk for total fat & calcium.
2018 has been an incredible year so far for vegans in the UK, with Veganuary tripling its particpant levels this year and some of the most amazing vegan products being released we could ever wish for.
