A brand new vegan cheeseboard is launching this Christmas featuring three brand new vegan cheeses alongside the award-winning Applewood Vegan

Norseland, than brand behind the sell-out Applewood Vegan cheese and brains behind the world’s best-selling cheese advent calendar, is launching a festive vegan cheeseboard this Christmas.

The Ilchester® Vegan Festive Selection features three brand new vegan cheeses alongside its multi-award-winning Applewood Vegan.

The new flavours include Ilchester® Melting Mature Cheddar Vegan, Ilchester® Blue Vegan Cheese Alternative (with blue spirulina vein) and Mexicana® Vegan Spicy Cheese alternative.

In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Lisa Harrison, Senior Brand Manager for the Ilchester® Vegan Festive Selection, said: “We are very proud of our fantastic tasting vegan cheeses: they taste, and melt, like traditional cheese. So, as the number of vegans in the UK are soaring – the Vegan Society says the number of vegans in the UK has quadrupled between 2006 and 2018 – we know that there is a huge demand for vegan cheese.

“But it isn’t just for vegans. Christmas is a time when people overindulge and huge amounts of saturated fat are eaten: in meat, cheese, cream – not to mention sugar! Swapping a traditional cheeseboard with a vegan cheese-board means that people can still have the taste of cheese in the festive period, but without raising their blood pressure, cholesterol, and salt levels still further.

“Our vegan cheeses are becoming increasingly popular with flexitarians as well as vegans – and we take this as the highest compliment.”
