Applewood, a cheese company which has been producing traditional dairy cheese for more than 56-years, has announced it will be launching its first ever vegan cheese on 23rd September in 235 Asda stores.

The new coconut-based vegan cheese is free from dairy, soya, and gluten and has a smoky flavour comparable to Applewood’s signature smokey cheeses.

The company believe that it’s the Vegan cheese alternative we have been waiting for, with a smooth & creamy coconut base that melts beautifully. The cheese is also fortified with added B12 & calcium to ensure it’s nutritionally sound as well as being delicious.

The company originally announced that the cheese would launch in UK supermarkets in January 2019 but went back to the drawing board to reformulate the recipe following consumer feedback.

In an Instagram post, the company announced: “Unfortunately this is taking slightly longer than we envisaged, as we want to ensure it tastes great and melts really well, so we wanted to let you know that it won’t be ready until later next year, 2019. We really appreciate your support and positive anticipation and we hope to get this product to you as soon as we can.”
