British bakery Cooplands recently partnered with vegan brand Violife to launch a vegan Cheeze and Vegetable Bake. The new bake combines Violife Epic Mature Cheddar cheese with vegetables and a creamy sauce in Cooplands’ flaky pastry. It was created to meet the increasing demand for vegan options in parts of England, including the North East and Yorkshire.  

“We are excited to partner with Violife to create a new plant-based cheeze bake using their great-tasting cheese replacement product,” Belinda Youngs, CEO at Cooplands, said. “For people who are either vegan or just looking to eat less meat in their diet or trying to do their bit for the environment, it is a tasty option.”

The new Cheeze and Vegetable Bake is available at more than 160 Cooplands locations in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and the North East of England. It joins the bakery’s existing plant-based lineup, which includes a vegan sausage roll and steak bake.
