Which Countries Have the Most Vegan Cheese
In this chart above, we break down how many vegan and plant based cheeses each country has available out of the 800+ vegan cheeses we have in our database. As we update the database and add new cheeses you will see the chart and numbers increase on this article, exciting!
This data is from our own discovery tool and database, so isn't perfect but is a great estimate as to which countries have the most vegan cheese options and choices.
Head to the vegan cheese discovery tool to see hundreds of vegan cheese options available in your country: discovery tool.
Every single vegan cheese on the site and in the database can be bought from a physical store or online, depending on the country you are in. You will also be able to buy some of them at vegan markets and events too, depending if they or resellers have a stall.

Vegan Cheese in Canada

You may find many more than this is you order online and find a service and vegan shop to post to you in Canada, but we are uncertain of the actual logistics involved there.
