Babybel goes plant-based!

Yvonne O'Halloran

The fun little wax covered cheese we all love has now joined the plant-based movement. Bel Group, a french cheese company, will soon release a vegan version of their mini cheese wheels, Babybel cheese. 

The packaging for the plant-based option will be green, instead of the usual red color. The cheese will even be fortified with calcium and vitamin B12, to help give plant-based eaters a boost with their nutrition. 

The company has received great demand for creating this product, and will begin to sell it in the UK this month. After its initial launch strictly in Sainsbury’s, the company will branch out to other stores and regions. 

Because of the high demand and need for vegan cheese alternatives, Bel Group is continuously working towards coming out with more vegan cheese products. Prior to the creation of the vegan babybel cheese wheel, they released a vegan Boursin spread. 

To add to their current repertoire, Bel Group has also launched a separate vegan cheese line – Nurishh. This line is sold in the United States in select stores and on Amazon Fresh.    

Please note: The cheese is vegan but the packaging does contain beeswax
