Bute Island Foods vegan “Sheese” going viral in supermarkets

18th October 2017

Bute Island Foods Sheese is now distributing virtually worldwide! From the UK to Canada, Finland to Australia, no matter where you are, you can find Sheese without too much trouble. And with such a vast area to reach, comes a lot of food production which is why the team are working around the clock to keep up with demand.

One thing that is important to the Bute brand is that their team are a tight-knit group of island locals and that each tub, block or bag of Sheese is made with these hardworking individuals in mind. At Bute Island Foods they truly believe that the quality of the food they produce reflects the quality of the workers at the Creamery and with quality food comes quality awards! (That’s a lot of quality!) Here’s a list of a few awards that they have received in the last few years:

  • Free-From Food Awards (Germany) 2016 Winner – Dairy Alternatives.
  • Quality Food Awards – Good Choice!
  • PETA UK Vegan Food Awards – Best Dairy Free Cheese.
  • Viva! 15th Anniversary Best Vegan Product.
  • Food & Drink Awards – Vegan Product Developer of the Year 2017
  • Best Vegan Cheese Alternative UK– Mature Cheddar Style Cheese

and many more!

With their recent branding change, the launch of a new Tesco exclusive range and brand new flavours to their ever growing family of Sheese (coming soon!), Bute Island Foods aim to keep knocking themselves off the top of the list with another delicious and inventive product that they know their consumers will love. So stay tuned, 2017 may be another big year for the team at Bute Island Foods.
