We reported yesterday that French multinational cheese producer Bel Group had revealed that its core brands including The Laughing Cow, Babybel, Kiri, Leerdammer and Boursin are set to offer a vegan cheese option.

Bel Group said it is developing a “plant-based Mini Babybel project” and  that it will  launch an international brand fully dedicated to plant-based cheese products. We have further informaton as below on the Boursin which is the first to launch.

The company states that the dairy-free version has the same Garlic & Herbs flavor you expect from Boursin, is suitable for a festive cheese board or for use in recipes.

  • Its Plant-Based certified and non-GMO project verified recipe made with organic coconut oil and organic expeller-pressed canola oil make it a spreadable, creamy cheese alternative.
  • The new product’s packaging includes a recyclable cup and lid and is easy to use, open and reclose, making it ideal for entertaining and snacking occasions.
  • Boursin® Dairy-Free was developed using the knowledge and expertise of international plant-based food brand, Follow Your Heart.

Available at Amazon starting in late October, consumers can purchase Boursin® Dairy-Free Cheese Spread Alternative Garlic & Herbs for a suggested retail price of $6.99 in the US.

The plant-based Boursin will be available in Canada in the new year and we will update further as to any future rollouts into additional markets.
