Our vegan-friendly Free From cheese alternative range has been getting rave reviews – and now we've added two delicious new flavours to the range.
The Asda Free From Blue Alternative and Asda Free From Double Gloucester Alternative with Onion & Chives will be available in 132 of our stores across the UK.
They're the latest additions to our Free From cheese alternative range, which already includes Cheddar, Mozzarella and Soft Cheese alternatives.
Our Free From cheese alternatives have been developed by Bute Island Foods and our Free From Cheddar Alternative recently won a taste test by Good Housekeeping, who called it 'officially the best vegan cheddar cheese". They said: "Crumbly with a mild and slightly tangy aroma. Our winning vegan cheddar cheese has a lovely savoury quality with a mild, salty yet balanced tang. We enjoyed its nice and smooth texture and with an added bonus, this vegan cheese melted best in our grilling test!"
We launched our Free From cheese alternative range last year – with lots of people taking to social media to say how much they loved it. See what people said here.
Francois Lintermans, Bute Island Foods' company director and head of new product development, said: “Bute Island Foods is a family-run business, dedicated to producing a wide range of Vegan and Free From cheese alternatives since 1994.
“We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Asda by introducing two new vegan cheese products to its dairy-free range. The company has rapidly expanded over the past year to meet the increase in demand for our products, due to consumer awareness of the benefits of eating a plant-based diet – whether for health, ethical or environmental reasons.
“The blue cheese is really popular and ideal for cheeseboards, sandwiches and blue cheese fondue. The Double Gloucester with onion and chives is a first to market – and gives consumers another tasty option when it comes to free from cheese – providing variety and choice is so important to us.”
Yvonne McArthur, from our Scotland Local team, said: “At Asda we work alongside our suppliers to create innovative, affordable, delicious and high-quality products – and our work with Bute Island Foods on the Free From cheese range is no exception. Working closely with the team at Bute Island we’re very proud to be the first retailer to offer a Free From Double Gloucester to our customers across the UK.”
