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.
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."
