Greek vegan brand Violife recently expanded its distribution to 451 Whole Foods Market locations nationwide. The grocery chain now offers three flavors of the brand’s coconut oil-based vegan cheese: parmesan, mature cheddar slices, and smoked provolone slices. Prior to the national expansion, Violife products—which also include gouda slices, gorgonzola cream cheese, blue cheese, and mozzarella-style shreds—were available at select retailers in the United States and abroad. Last fall, international chain Pizza Hut tested Violife’s vegan cheese on the menu of eight of its restaurant locations, before expanding the option in November to all of its 262 outposts across the United Kingdom.
