With the success of Spanish companies such as plant meat producer Heura, Pink Albatross, the dairy-free ice-cream parlour, Grin Grin Foods, which delivers vegan food to the home, and Nova Meat, the creator of 3D vegan meat, the vegan trend on the Iberian Peninsula is certainly starting to catch up with the times.

A company called Mommus from Elche, a small town in southeast Spain, has now been recognized for creating one of the best cheeses in the world by Abillionveg community review.

According to an article in Euro Weekly News, the company based in the Miguel Hernández University Science Park makes 100% natural vegan cheese, made from cashew nuts, water and salt coated in penicillin camemberti. The recognition is another of the great achievements coming from Spain for the vegan market.

In September a study by money.co.uk’s “Diet Destination Report” revealed that four of the top 10 European cities for vegans are in Spain. In addition, demand for animal-free products in Spanish supermarkets has risen significantly since the start of the pandemic, and both established and emerging vegan businesses continue to work to meet this growing demand.
