Black Arts Vegan

Artisanal melting vegan cheese

Identifying with the punk root of veganism and preferring a pragmatic, no-BS approach, my mission is to create the ‘cheesy’ textures and flavours that most of us grew up with and many of us find hard to give up when going vegan.

After a decade in biological sciences, I knew I needed to make a change. I was stressed out, overworked and heading into a career that was increasingly at odds with my vegan ethics. I left academia in 2016 and shortly after realised that I could combine my love of plant-based cooking with the scientific training I’d received.

Black Arts vegan is passionate about the environment and standing up for animals rights by bringing delicious melting cheeses to the masses. We use sustainable, reused or recycled packaging wherever possible and choose the highest quality ingredients for our products.

With a delicate balance of science and alchemy, Black Arts Vegan makes cheese without the blood sacrifice.

Black Arts Vegan specialises in melting vegan cheeses. Our signature range will melt and brown under a hot grill and will stay gooey in your toastie! We also have a range of delicious, tofu-based, spreadable cheeses which look great on a cheeseboard and are delicious when warm or baked with. All our products are soy-based and most are completely nut-free.
