Many consumers are opting to avoid eating animal-based products for both ethical and environmental reasons, and rands are responding to this shift in consumer preference with plant-based alternatives, like the new Applewood Vegan Slices.
These plant-powered cheese alternatives are great for adding to both sandwiches and burgers and were made in collaboration with Vbites. The vegan strips boast a smooth and creamy flavor profile and are said to "melt beautifully" atop foods. Heather Mills, the founder of Vbites, said: “There’s no lactose, milk, eggs, soy, nuts or gluten in Applewood Vegan, it’s dairy free and cholesterol-free but it’s packed with the taste that vegans, veggies, and flexitarians want in their sandwiches and lunch boxes."
