Though the concept of plant-based or alternative cheese is not new, the number of high-quality non-dairy cheeses has exploded in the past decade. With both health and environmental pressures weighing on the dairy and cheese industries, numerous companies are working to inch dairy-free cheeses closer to the performance that dairy cheeses have traditionally held. At the same time, traditional dairy-based cheesemakers are working to meet the needs of today's consumers by building more sustainable and nutritious products and farming practices.
