Australia’s
Mexican-inspired quick-service chain Zambrero has added vegan cheese to the menu
in its restaurants across Australia.

Availability

Mylife’s Biocheese
Cheddar Flavour will now be available at
the company’s 170 restaurants nationwide and can be added to a number of menu items.

The cheese, which is coconut oil-based and palm-oil free, has now been made permanent menu item –
after it was trialed in Victoria early this year.

Growing
demand

According to Zambrero CEO Bianca Azzopardi, the move is a response to growing demand for dairy-free options.

Commenting on the new addition, Azzopardi said: “Across the industry 
we have seen 
an increase in 
the desire for vegan-friendly products, 
not only by vegans but 
also those that 
are lactose intolerant and health conscious.

“We know it can be tricky 
to find consistency 
in plant-based alternatives, especially 
that taste really 
good, and we 
continue to aim to position Zambrero 
as the first 
choice for a 
healthy, vegan-friendly meal.”
