Daiya has been in operation since 2007 when two vegan friends, Greg and Andre, realised how much they missed cheese and decided to create a plant-based replacement for cheese. Greg and Andre believe that cheese should be included and want to ensure that no one misses out on it.

Daiya is a front-runner in their field having been making vegan cheese before plant-based hit the mainstream. The range available from Daiya includes mac and cheese and ultra-melty cheeses for pizzas. Daiya blends tradition with innovation to ensure people with plant-based diets have a great cheese alternative.

You can browse the full range of Daiya’s products on their website and purchase from most grocery stores across Canada.
