Italian organic and vegan cheese alternative brand Fermè has launched in Whole Foods Market in the UK. The brand was launched in Italy earlier this year by dried nut and fruit supplier Euro Company and will also be launching in Spain and France later in the year.

The Fermè block range includes Original, Black Pepper, Paprika and Herbs & Flowers flavours. The line of spreads consists of Original, Chive and Pepper & Basil varieties. The Original products are made with only three ingredients: fermented cashews, water and salt.

“Fermentino was Italian gastronomic tradition’s answer to the growing demand for natural foods of vegetable origin,” said a spokeswoman for Fermè to The Grocer.

“With the trend for plant-based eating showing no signs of slowing down, the time was right to introduce the UK consumers to a natural plant-based product, which is healthy, delicious and only contains three ingredients,” she added.
