Vegan cheese is now on the menu at 170 locations of Mexican-inspired chain Zambrero in Australia. The company partnered with local vegan company MyLife to add its coconut oil-based cheddar Biocheese, which can be ordered in a number of dishes including burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and nachos. “Across the industry, we have seen an increase in the desire for vegan-friendly products, not only by vegans but also those that are lactose-intolerant and health-conscious,” Zambrero CEO Bianca Azzopardi said. “We know it can be tricky to find consistency in plant-based alternatives, especially that taste really good, and we continue to aim to position Zambrero as the first choice for a healthy, vegan-friendly meal.” This year, international chains Domino’s and Pizza Hut answered the demand for vegan options by adding vegan cheese to their Australian branches.
