Much loved cheese masters Violife has expanded their repertoire by partnering up with plant-based burger company PLNT Burger. Violife will now be the only plant-based cheese available in all PLNT Burger locations, with some of the menu options including PLNT Cheeseburger, DBL PLNT Cheeseburger, Chilli Bowl, Spicy Chik’N Sandwich, and the Steakhouse Burger.
“We’re excited to be able to offer our new and existing fans a new way to enjoy our cheeses in plant-forward dishes that will delight and keep them coming back for more,” said Rachel Waynberg, Violife Senior Marketing Manager, Foodservice. “This exclusive partnership showcases the deep admiration for Violife and PLNT Burger from fans and we’re excited to continue to expand with PLNT Burger stores across the U.S.”
Recently named one of Nation’s Restaurant News’s “Hot Concepts” for 2022, PLNT Burger is thrilled with the partnership. “We love Violife cheeses,” said Chef Mike Coletti, Director of Culinary. “Violife has the creaminess, texture and meltability we’ve been looking for. We melt their cheeses on all of our burgers and shred them on our chili. From aged cheddar, provolone, and American slices to spicy pepper jack cheese, Violife packs all the flavor of regular cheese without all the allergens.”
Violife offers a huge range of plant-based cheese products, all of which are free from dairy, preservatives, casein, lactose, gluten, nuts, and soy. A favourite in the TVR office has to be the Violife Greek White cheese, diced up in a salad. It’s delicious! Similarly, all PLNT Burger products are 100% plant-based, Kosher-certified, Halal, and nut-free. PLNT Burger also offers many gluten-free options.
Whilst many vegans choose to avoid plant-based cheeses or anything resembling animal products, we recognise that many still love to indulge in old favourites, replacing the dairy form with plant-based. As such, we wrote this piece on some of the best cheeses around – we’d love to hear what you think and which ones you prefer.
