Budget supermarket Aldi is ringing in the new year with an exciting new product - its first-ever vegan cheese!


You won’t want to miss Aldi’s cheesy new launch this Veganuary! For the first time ever, Aldi is launching vegan cheese for those embracing a plant-based diet this Veganuary.

The new Plant Menu Mature Cheddar Block (£1.39, 200g) is made using coconut oil and also comes in a Grated Cheddar Pack (£1.39, 150g).

Aldi’s vegan cheese is the perfect addition to cheese and wine evenings, pizza toppings or even the humble classic, cheese on toast.

According to the company, it’s delicious enjoyed straight from the bag and even melts like dairy cheese.

Keen to make vegan food more accessible, Aldi’s vegan cheddar alternative is up to £1.21 cheaper than comparable products at Tesco and Sainsbury’s.

There’s not long to wait until you can get your hands on it as the Plant Menu Mature Cheddar Block and the Grated Cheddar Pack will be available in stores from 2nd January.

Aldi vegan range

The affordable supermarket has been working on increasing its vegan offering over the past few years as demand for plant-based products soars.

In fact, Aldi recently introduced its largest-ever vegan range to cater for the thousands of Brits who are going vegan this January.

Moreover, for Christmas 2021, Aldi launched its ‘best ever vegan range‘ filled with enticing options such as a vegan Camembert with a Cranberry Centre and a No Turkey Crown with Vegan Bacon.

As well as launching its new affordable vegan cheese, Aldi also recently launched its ultimate vegan burger for just £1.99 to rival Beyond Meat’s pricy patties.

With many people saying cost is a barrier for them going plant-based, it’s exciting to see more affordable options hitting the shelves.

The long-awaited vegan Boursin is finally here, but is it as good as the original?
