Pizza Hut Launches Vegan Cheese

The international pizza chain adds Violife vegan cheese to five UK locations to gauge consumer interest.

International chain Pizza Hut will add vegan cheese to the menu at five of its United Kingdom locations in October. The company partnered with rapidly expanding Greek vegan brand Violife to supply its dairy-free cheese, which will be available from October 2 until November 26 in Canterbury, Chatham, Thanet, Bluewater, and Crawley locations (and not available for delivery). Violife debuted at more than 400 locations of major Canadian chain Pizza Pizza in March, before being available in the United States—by way of growing pizza chain WisePies Pizza & Salad—last month. In July, competing pizza chain Domino’s added vegan cheese by UK-based brand VBites to 55 of its locations in Israel.
