Zambrero has partnered with vegan cheese brand Mylife to offer a dairy-free cheese alternative to consumers

Australia's Mexican-inspired quick-service chain Zambrero has added vegan cheese to the menu in its restaurants across Australia.


Mylife's Biocheese 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.

Growing demand

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."
