I’ve tried some vegan cheese before and it was horrible - do your cheeses taste nice?

Just like dairy cheese there are many different varieties of plant-based cheeses each with their own distinct flavour and texture. Our goal at La Fauxmagerie is to present the widest range of our favourite plant-based cheeses so that, whatever your tastes, you’re guaranteed to find something you will love in our store.


Are you eco friendly?

All of our packaging (including our bags, boxes, cheese wrapping and stickers) are made from recycled, recyclable, and/or biodegradable materials. Our ability to offer a variety of cheeses in custom weights for customers in store also minimises individual product packaging.

Most of our suppliers also use sustainable packaging and reuse materials wherever possible to lower their impact on the environment. Some of our suppliers offer a refund or discount scheme for returning and/or reusing their boxes and jars - ask us about this in store as we’re happy to honour our supplier’s discount schemes and return their packaging on your behalf.

Do I have to be vegan?

Absolutely not! We welcome anyone and everyone regardless of their dietary choices and commend any efforts to eat more consciously, vegan or not.

Does it taste like real cheese?

The flavours and textures that we consider to be ‘cheesy’ can be replicated using plant-based ingredients. Vegan probiotic cultures and lactic acid help give plant-based cheeses that recognisable ‘cheddar tang’ we all love, while soy and cashew are perfect substitutes for creating a creamy or crumbly texture. These are our most common cheese ingredients but some of our incredible artisans have created products using a wide range of ingredients - from algae and rice protein to macadamia and miso! With 3 million species of plants, algae, and fungi in the world the combinations of flavours really are endless.

Does it melt like real cheese?

Just like dairy cheese, some of our cheeses melt better than others. Some are crumbly, some are grate-able, some are spreadable, just ask us in store for any advice on our product range.


Are you vegan?

Rachel is vegan and Charlotte is lacto-free.


What about allergens?

As many of our products contain nuts and/or soy, neither we nor our suppliers can guarantee that our products are suitable for the nut or soy allergic. We do stock cheeses produced from alternative ingredients so please do talk to our team if you have any intolerances or ingredients you’d rather avoid.
