Applewood to Launch Their Signature Plant-based Smoked Cheese In the UK

The traditional cheese makers from the UK has been into the cheese-making business for over 56 years. However, they’re only producers of traditional dairy-cheese, but until now. Applewood originally shared their plans to launch their vegan offering last year, proclaiming that it would be out in UK supermarket by January, this year. But the launch date was dragged back since they were into reformulating the cheese after customer feedback.

The company took to their Instagram handle to let folks know of their delay. It read:

“Unfortunately this is taking slightly longer than we envisaged, as we want to ensure it tastes great and melts really well, so we wanted to let you know that it won’t be ready until later next year, 2019. We really appreciate your support and positive anticipation and we hope to get this product to you as soon as we can.”

And now, it is official. The company on their website states it clear that the classic Applewood cheese experience will be coming to the vegans, via their vegan offering, plant-based smoked cheese. According to the website, the new offering is due by this year’s end, but the wait will be worth since it will come “with the same great flavor of Applewood®!”

The Cheese

Speaking about the hero of our attention, the plant-based cheese mentioned here will be reportedly made of a smooth and creamy coconut base that will melt beautifully and will preserve the signature smokiness of Applewood. The new coconut-based cheese will come with the added benefit of vitamin B12 and calcium, apart from being free from dairy, soy, and gluten.

It is not yet known from the company in which supermarket the product will be coming first. But hey, the company will reportedly choose 10 subscribers from their mailing list to try the vegan sample prior to the launch, and you might test your luck here.
