About Us

Hi there! My name is Brittany - welcome to The Vegan Dairy!

​My mum has been making artisan European style dairy cheeses for about six years now (although she has been a chef and cooking teacher for a life-time before that), and as her business grew and grew she brought me in to lend a helping hand. That was about three years ago. And since then I have learned about some amazing cheese making techniques (and some challenging blunders) that have enabled me to experiment with my own ideas. Enter - the accidental beauty that has become The Vegan Dairy.

​Being vegetarian for a number of years, and preferring to eat ligher food options without sacrificing taste or quality, finding dairy alternatives that truly rivaled "the real thing" when I didn't want to eat cheese always felt like a big challenge. So I decided to use what I had learnt from working with my mum to do something about it!

Coming from a cheese making background gave us the insight into traditional cheese making methods that could be applied to vegan versions, and also enabled us to play with flavours with a better understanding of how our products should taste if they were to rival dairy. And though I think we have done a pretty good job so far we are always experimenting and working on new things and ideas - my husband has now become an enthusiastic budding vegan cheesemaker as well, encouraging me to push the boundaries of what you "can" and "cannot" do in cheesemaking - so feel free to tell us what you hope to see in the future and we'll see if we can make it a possibility! 

I hope you love our creations as much as we do!
