Vegan cheese makers GreenVie Foods has announced its award-winning alternative to mozzarella will launch in 262 Tesco stores across the U.K.

The plant-based product, which scooped BBC’s Good Food Awards last year for Best Vegan Cheese, will hit the shelves on July 6. 

‘A plant-based revolution’ 

According to popular Instagram account VeganFood UK, GreenVie’s Managing Director and Founder Maria Palme said: “We are going through a plant-based revolution and we are more than happy to be part of it by creating the future of food: products that are sustainable, healthy and cruelty-free. 

“[We’re] Excited to continue to our commitment, expand to new locations, and keep inspiring new and existing customers all over the world to follow a plant-based lifestyle!”

‘Gooey goodness’

The brand’s mozzarella alternative, which is free-from dairy, gluten, soy, and palm oil, is said to have ‘a soft, creamy texture which holds its shape when raw but melts enticingly when cooked.’

On its website, GreenVie states: “It can be used in a wide variety of starters and mains as a striking addition to a finished dish… From grilled ”cheese’ to pizza, to mozzarella sticks -many dishes wouldn’t be the same without the melty gooey goodness of GreenVie Mozzarella flavor!”
