Terra Nut Cheese
Terra Nut Cheese produce a range of delicious vegan cream cheeses made of whole food, plant based and mostly organic ingredients: whole cashews, purified water, New Zealand sea salt, dairy-free probiotics, herbs & spices. They're all plastic-free and certified vegan.
The cheeses, which include Dill & Garlic Cashew Cream Cheese, Smoky Cashew Cream Cheese and Plain Cashew Cream Cheese are deliciously natural and tangy, and will make you doubt they're vegan at all!
Incredibly versatile, they can be used in the same ways you'd use dairy cream cheese. You can easily make creamy mushrooms, vegan Carbonara, almost-instant Mac and Cheese or a guilt-free icing for a cake with the products. Or you can simply enjoy them on crackers and bagels.
Along with being super tasty, they're kind to your body as well. Terra Nut Cheese is cultured with probiotics - friendly bacteria that improve digestive and immune systems.
Besides being a vegan company, the team at Terra Nut Cheese are striving to be as environmentally friendly as possible. The cream cheese is plastic free and comes in glass jars. They also use cardboard boxes, compostable rubbish bags, paper tape and paper bubble wrap for shipping.
Head office: Wellington.
Owners: Lark and Alex are the founders of Terra Nut Cheese. They started making nut cheeses in 2017 when they struggled to find wholesome, oil-free vegan alternatives that would be great on crackers, bagels as well as in dishes like creamy pasta or risotto. They are passionate about providing their customers with products that are free of animal products, and artificial or refined ingredients - but still taste fantastic!
