Cheese addicts of the planet! If you're trying to ditch dairy and go vegan, but find your dairy cheese impossible to give up on, Bute Island Foods will put a smile as wide as the Forth Bridge on your faces with their awesome dairy-free alternative Sheese brand of vegan cheese.
Numerous surveys both by us as well as by other vegan organisations and research groups have indicated that cheese is by far the most difficult food for any would-be vegans to give up on in their food transition process. However, thanks to companies like Bute Island Foods who have invested a huge amount of innovation, passion, energy, time and capital into coming up with a satisfactory dairy-free alternative for this specialty pioneered by the Romans, worshippers (and even haters) of dairy cheese are having their heads turned by vegan cheeseboards in which Bute Island's Sheese play a huge part.
Bute Island Foods has an illustrious list of flavours and varieties in their Sheese catalogue that cater for a wide spectrum of taste buds:
Looking for some nice vegan cheese to spread onto your crackers or toasts? There's Bute Island's Creamy Sheese which comes in 6 different flavours – Original, Garlic and Herb, Chives, Cheddar Style Spread, Sweet Chilli style and Spring Onion & Black Pepper (brand-new flavour).
For the ultimate cheese aficionados, or wine connoisseurs looking for that cheesy balance of flavour with their favourite beverages, Bute Island's hard Sheese fits the bill perfectly. Their 7 distinct flavours make a lovely vegan cheeseboard which will more than match its dairy-based counterparts for taste: Blue, Cheshire, Chives, Edam, Gouda, Medium Cheddar and Mozzarella.
In late-2013, Bute Island have also launched their Vegandeli range of vegan mock meat for the carnivores, meat-reducers, veggies and vegans alike. From Gourmet Morcilla, Smoked Gourmet Chorizo and Mock Ham, to Mortadella, Smoked Mortadela, Italian Gourmet Mortadella and Mortadella with Sweet Peppers... we think even Grillstock would be proud of this sumptuous BBQ collection!
The best thing about Bute Island's products is of course that all ingredients are 100% VEGAN, which means guilt-free indulgence with all their Sheese and 'meats' as well as ENORMOUS GRATITUDE from all the animals that you help save by not eating them.
These guys from Bute Island in Scotland have been sponsoring Vegfest events for many years including Brighton, Bristol and London, and many visitors to their stalls at Vegfest have been bamboozled by the sheer quality and large variety of their vegan Sheese as well as the friendliness and knowledge of their staff. In recognition of the calibre of their products, Bute Island have also been nominated countless times for the VegfestUK Awards. Plus, they jumped on the opportunity to sponsor our debut show in their native Scotland as soon as the show was announced – BIG CHEERS GUYS!
Find out all their whereabouts as well as latest product news at their lovely website www.buteisland.com, or follow them on Facebook and Twitter @ButeIslandFoods.

Bute Island will have a large stall near the main entrance to Hall 3 of the SECC in Glasgow at Vegfest Scotland on December 5th 6th, with all their Sheese and Vegandeli meats as well as a table doing freshly baked vegan pizzas... we must stop here now or our laptop is in serious danger of being flooded with saliva ;)
