Applewood has secured a deal with Sainsbury’s to stock their award-winning vegan cheese slices
Applewood, a cheese company that has been producing traditional dairy cheese for more than 56-years, launched its first-ever vegan cheese last year which proved so popular that it sold out in just one day.
Now the company has secured listings at Sainsbury’s supermarket to stock its new vegan cheese slices that are perfect for burgers and sandwiches.
Applewood Vegan Slices will be stocked in 304 Sainsbury’s stores across the UK and will RRP at £2.50 for ten slices.
The cheese is also available in 200g blocks in 470 Asda stores, 250 Waitrose and Partner stores as well as online via TheVeganKind and VBites.
Lisa Harrison, Senior Brand Manager for Applewood, said: “The success of Applewood Vegan has been phenomenal. The excitement around the launch back in October was amazing with 40% of the Asda stores stocking it sold out, which started us thinking about how we could innovate with the cheese, which has led to the creation of the new slices product.
“We are over the moon that Sainsbury’s is on board and has agreed to stock it in 304 stores from 14 June; they will be a great partner for the cheese slices. It shows that there is an increasing demand for vegan cheese, not just among the vegan community, but also with flexitarians.”
