Yay! Foods’ Marinated Plant-based Feta is launching into selected Woolworths stores across Victoria and NSW this week.
“We’re incredibly excited to share Yay! Feta with Woolworths shoppers, and to showcase just how delicious vegan cheese can be,” says Yay! Foods co-founders, Nergiz Yuksel and Nalin Arileo.
“We believe the taste and consistency of Yay! Feta is a total gamechanger that could help people to eat less dairy and integrate more plant-based goodies like this one into their routine.”
Every jar of Yay! Feta is promoted as being “lovingly” handcrafted in Melbourne. The team uses tofu and coconut oil, then seasons these ingredients with “freshly” squeezed lemon juice, hand cut garlic, and rosemary stripped straight from the plant. Ms Yuksel and Ms Arileo believe this commitment to quality wholefood ingredients is what sets Yay! Feta apart from other speciality vegan cheeses.
“When people first try Yay! Feta, their eyes light up,” says the co-founders. “People can’t believe that something could taste so creamy and delectable and be entirely free from dairy. The product still serves up that full-bodied Mediterranean inspired flavour that traditional feta is loved for.
“(And) you don’t need to be vegan to enjoy Yay! Feta. People love to melt the product on homemade pizzas, stir it through pastas, or simply enjoy it on toast. You can prepare all your favourite meals and snacks with this product. Our goal has always been to make vegan food as delicious and accessible as possible, regardless of individual lifestyle choices or dietary needs.”
