As we pay more attention to what we eat, we strive for foods that are good for us, good for the planet and humane. The Vegan Cheese Shoppe was created to provide simple, satisfying, and sustainable vegan cheese alternatives. We are based in Honolulu, Hawaii and pride ourselves on featuring locally grown macadamia nuts paired with other premium tree nuts to bring you rich and satisfying cheese alternatives. We hope you will try our "cheeses" on your next platter or in your favorite recipes!

Tasting Notes: This creamy Brie alternative has a neutral flavor profile with buttery overtones and a cultured finish.
Wine Pairing: Pair this Macadamia Nut "Brie" with a beautiful Chardonnay, Pinot Noir or Champagne. Cheers!
Founder & CEO
Growing up in the agricultural mecca of California's central valley, there was no way around a love of food in its most natural state. After receiving her Bachelors of Science degree in Business Marketing from San Diego State University Erin moved east to New York City. It was there that she realized her true passion for diet, nutrition and food culture. She then received a Masters degree in Food Studies from New York University. During her studies she realized the importance of a plant-based diet for the health of our bodies and for our planet. Erin moved to Hawaii and started working on cheese alternatives with the goal of health and sustainability. "Cheese" made from tree nuts is full of healthy fats and satisfying like a traditional cheese, but without the animal. Using locally grown Macadamia nuts to create a delicious vegan cheese has been a dream come true. We invite you to try our Macadamia Nut "Brie" and look forward to more varieties in the near future. Mahalo!
