One of the UK’s leading plant-based cheezes has kicked off 2024 by winning another award to add to its sizeable haul of trophies.
Multi-award-winning Applewood Vegan has just won its 15th award by scooping the silver gong in the vegan fridge/freezer category of the Veggie Awards 2023 for its Applewood Vegan Bites, the second accolade for the plant-based snacking net.
Applewood Vegan Bites launched in Morrisons last spring shortly followed by a listing in Asda.
Veggie Awards judges described the Applewood Vegan Bites as “little bites of joy that make a great snack or lunchbox addition for kids and adults alike. When it comes to flavour, you’d be hard pushed to tell the cheese apart from its non-vegan counterparts. It has a mouth-watering smoky Applewood smell and taste, along with a soft, pleasingly creamy texture – not too crumbly. Delicious!”
Commenting on the award, Ffion Davies, Brand Manager for Applewood Vegan, said: “What a way to start 2024, collecting our 15th award for Applewood Vegan – and our second for the Bites in less than a year as the Bites also won the Gold Award in the Dairy-Free Cheese Alternative category in the prestigious International Cheese Awards last summer.
“We loved the judges’ comments too, particularly that it is hard to tell the Bites apart from their non-vegan counterparts. Also like the judges said, the Bites are perfect for lunchboxes for children and adults, but also, they are the perfect snacking option for anyone counting calories as each Bite contains only 45 calories.”
Applewood Vegan Bites are fortified with B12 and calcium, coconut based and free from dairy, lactose, soya, gluten and palm oil.
Applewood Vegan is part of the Norseland portfolio of cheeses – both dairy and vegan – and the company is the established blended and snacking cheese specialist in the UK so has many years of experience making the best snacking cheeses in the UK.
The Bites are available to buy at Morrisons and Asda stores across the UK.
