Mexican-inspired quick-service chain Zambrero has added vegan cheese to the menu
in its restaurants across Australia.
Cheddar Flavour will now be available at
the company's 170 restaurants nationwide and can be added to a number of menu items.
The cheese, which is coconut oil-based and palm-oil free, has now been made permanent menu item -
after it was trialed in Victoria early this year.
According to Zambrero CEO Bianca Azzopardi, the move is a response to growing demand for dairy-free options.
Commenting on the new addition, Azzopardi said: "Across the industry
we have seen
an increase in
the desire for vegan-friendly products,
not only by vegans but
also those that
are lactose intolerant and health conscious.
"We know it can be tricky
to find consistency
in plant-based alternatives, especially
that taste really
good, and we
continue to aim to position Zambrero
as the first
choice for a
healthy, vegan-friendly meal."
