Violife has been a leader in both sales and innovation in the plant-based cheese industry in the UK. Recently it was announced that they are Pizza Hut’s vegan cheese provider of choice at all of their United Kingdom locations. Also, who could forget their plant-based halloumi that they released back in September?

The creative company has outdone themselves once again with the debut of their Christmas Dairy-Free Platter! The holiday package includes three different types of “cheeses:” Blu, After Dinner, and Mature. Violife made these cheeses not only dairy-free, but also soy-free and allergen-free, so all of your holiday guests are able to enjoy them.

If you live in the UK, you are among the lucky few who can pick up this platter at Sainbury’s for £5.50 or online at Ocado for £5.99. Because it is specifically made for the Christmas season, make sure you pick one up while you still have the chance!
