Based on abillion’s review data, consumer interest for vegan cheese products increased by 2.6 times between July 2020 and June 2021, compared to the previous year.
‘Grattaveg’ by Bio Vegeatal is this year’s #1 vegan cheese, for both EMEA but also on the global list. Bio Vegeatal is a Tuscan company that produces vegan and organic alternatives to cold cuts and cheese. In 2016, Piero Messana, and his son Fabio started offering their customers homemade vegan mozzarella and cold cuts in their pizzeria-gelateria. The products were an instant hit. This led them to start their own consumer brand for vegan products. Grattaveg is unlike most cheese products as it is made from red lentils and potato starch.
Vikas Garg, Founder and CEO, abillion, says, “Vegan cheese has come a long way. Today’s variations, according to reviews from the abillion community, are as good as the ‘real thing’. Our annual ranking of the world’s best vegan cheeses celebrates the range and diversity of this rapidly evolving and growing category. Based on our consumer data, we’ve noticed that consumers are willing to pay and pay a little more, for quality plant-based products. Consumers care about sustainability and are backing their values with their purchase decisions.”
