Love it or loath it, Veganism is spreading, and this cheese can help you cater for it. 

The number of vegans in the UK grew by 360 per cent in the 10 years between 2006 and 2016, according to researchers Ipsos MORI.

To help the pub trade cater for this trend, Mozzarisella, a vegan cheese made from rice, has been launched by Futura Foods.

Commenting on the launch, Kenneth Axen, managing director of Futura Foods, said: “‘Suitable for Vegans’ is a phrase that we are starting to see more and more of and outlets that fail to offer customers a vegan option undoubtedly stand to lose out in the future.

“We have recently seen the big pub chains add vegan options to their menus and we wanted to be in a position where we could help other operators looking to follow suit.

“Since adding Mozzarisella to our portfolio the demand for it has really taken off as caterers realise the potential profits involved in offering vegan-friendly dishes.”

Mozzarisella is made from rice and is suitable for vegans, vegetarians, coeliacs and those with a dairy intolerance.

It is available in several formats including an ‘Individually Quick Frozen Grated’ variety to be used straight from the freezer, to limit wastage.
