Applewood Vegan® Minis Scoops Gong at International Cheese and Dairy Awards

Aug 30, 2023

The first-ever snacking net from the UK’s leading plant-based cheeze has won a Gold Award at the prestigious International Cheese and Dairy Awards.

Applewood Vegan® Minis, the snacking version of the multi-award-winning Applewood Vegan®, won the top award in the Dairy Free Cheese Alternative category at the ICDA, the world’s biggest platform to champion world-class producers of cheese and dairy products.

Applewood Vegan® Minis launched earlier this year in Morrisons stores across the country and the Gold Award at the ICDA is the first accolade for this snacking net.

Speaking about the success at the ICDA, Ffion Davies, Senior Brand Manager for Applewood Vegan®, said: “The ICDA are the leading awards for the cheese industry with more than 5,500 entries across all categories so to win the Gold Award in the Dairy Free Cheese Alternative is momentous for the Applewood Vegan® brand, particularly as it is the first award for our Minis, but the 14th for the Applewood Vegan® brand overall.

“The BBC Good Food Guide gave the Minis 5 out of 5 in its review of the best vegan cheeses 2023, which we were thrilled about. And winning this highly sought-after ICDA accolade is so motivating for the team at Applewood Vegan®. We know the Minis are amazing, so it’s great that consumers and people in the industry and media feel the same too. Let’s hope the ICDA Gold Award in the Dairy Free Cheese Alternative category is the first of many for our Minis!

Like Applewood Vegan® Block, Slices and Grated, the Applewood Vegan® Minis are fortified with B12 and calcium, coconut based and free from dairy, lactose, soya, gluten and palm oil.

Applewood Vegan® Minis are available to buy at Morrisons and Booths stores across the UK.
