Zambrero rolls out gluten-free vegan cheese

The Mexican restaurant chain added another plant-based topping to their menu.

After a well-received trial period in Victoria, Zambrero has launched its vegan cheese offering across 170 of their stores in the country.

Non-GMO and gluten-free, the new offering follows the brand’s earlier-released vegan-friendly sauces and spiced cauliflower filling.

Zambrero cites the rising demand of plant-based alternatives in their decision to add vegan cheese to their menu.

“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,” Zambrero chief executive officer Bianca Azzopardi said.
