Australian dairy cheese is also in high demand overseas, with exports being flown to over 50 countries. That’s a saddening amount of fromage but tastes are shifting to vegan choices.

Basically, vegan cheese is not made from dairy, and does not contain casein (coagulated milk proteins), curd, whey, rennet (a calf’s stomach enzyme) or features beeswax rind. Vegan cheeses are made from plant-based ingredients such as coconut, rice, soy, nuts and seeds, nut milks, plant-based yeasts and – sometimes – root vegetables.
