Huge congratulations Mark!

Vegan Vegusto WINS Best FreeFrom Food in 2012.

‘Ohmigod! This is the best thing I have tasted in years!!!’

So said not one, but all five dairy-free judges after they had tasted the Vegusto Mild Aromatic Dairy-free cheese, winner of this year’s FreeFrom Food Awards, which were presented by Antony Worrall Thompson at the Museum of London in Docklands.

‘For years dairy free and vegan manufacturers have struggled to make a really tasty ‘cheese’ substitute,’ said Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, chair of the judges for the FreeFrom Food Awards,

Which makes Vegusto’s Which makes Vegusto’s achievement so exciting. We are talking a very pleasant, tasty ‘cheese’ that you could serve to anyone on a cracker or in a sandwich and they would not even notice that it was dairy free. Our dairy-intolerant judges were beside themselves with delight!’

Director of Vegusto UK and Eire Ltd Mark Galvin was delighted and as brand new kids on the cheese block this came as a huge surprise;

“Vegusto have created a range of ‘cheeses’ based on coconut, rapeseed and sunflower oils, almonds, cashew nuts which really do taste like cheese. Our Mild Aromatic Dairy-free cheese had the dairy-free judges whooping with excitement! And what’s more, the cheeses are not only dairy free, but gluten free, soya free and egg free too.”

Brand new to the UK Vegusto UK is delighted to announce the UK launch of its range of high quality meat and dairy free products suitable for people with soya, lactose and gluten  intolerant diets.
