But while it may look, smell, cut and taste like the hard cheese every Kiwi loves to put on a platter, this cheddar is a much healthier alternative. Leading innovator of dairy-free products Angel Food has created New Zealand’s first ever vegan cheddar - free from dairy, eggs, meat and GMOs - and instead made with peas, sunflowers and corn. “Cheese is one of those things that many people find the hardest to give up when they go dairy-free,” Angel Food CEO and founder Alice Shopland says. “That’s why we’ve created this convenient, tasty substitute. We want to make it easy for people to cut back on dairy.” The release of the dairy-free cheddar alternative also marks a personal milestone for the Auckland-based company, which has been in the business of creating plant-based products for a decade. It is the first in a series of new Angel Food releases, developed to meet the growing market demand for dairy-free. The brand was originally founded by Shopland so that those who are dairy-free, vegetarian or vegan can still enjoy their favourite food rituals. Its products are designed for maximum enjoyment and minimum intolerance. “It’s important to be able to have pizza with your mates on a Friday night - even if you are vegan or lactose intolerant,” Shopland says. It’s also why the company has worked hard to ensure its products are not only convenient but also widely available. Plant-based and certified by the Vegetarian Society, Angel Food’s new dairy-free cheddar alternative is available from supermarkets, health food stores and online. The cheddar joins an existing range of ready-made cheese sauces and dairy-free mozzarella and parmesan alternatives. Angel Food’s dairy-free mozzarella alternative is also available at Hell’s Pizza. Shopland, a passionate vegan and writer, founded Angel Food 10 years ago as a way of reducing barriers for those who are lactose intolerant or vegan. Her ability to constantly cook up innovative dairy-free products meant Angel Food was first to market and today continues to be the market leader, a decade on. There is no other brand in New Zealand making dairy-free and vegan products on the same commercial scale as Angel Food. In 2017, demand for convenient, dairy-free alternatives in New Zealand has reached an all-time high and supermarkets are experiencing rapid growth in this chilled non-dairy sector.
