Are you looking for vegan cheese made and sold in Wales? Worry no longer as we fill you in on all of the amazing vegan cheese options you can find in this small but beautiful country!

Did you know that one of the most common known cheese meals in Wales is that of the Welsh Rarebit, it's basically cheese on toast that is grilled.

Some recipes simply melt grated cheese on toast, making it identical to cheese on toast. Others make the sauce of cheese, ale, and mustard, and garnished with cayenne pepper or paprika. Other recipes add wine or Worcestershire sauce. he sauce may also blend cheese and mustard into a béchamel sauce.

In Welsh it's known as caws pobi and if you would like to know a little more, cheese in Welsh is Caws.

The beauty of it is, you can use whatever cheese you want, most commonly a sauce is made or a yellow cheese, but there are more than enough incredible cheeses from Wales below which would work perfectly on toast.


Vegan Cheeses Available in Wales

Below you can see the total number of vegan cheeses available for you to buy and try in Wales.

There are well over 500 vegan cheeses available to buy in Wales today and that might seem like a lot, and it is.

This is due to the location and country, Wales is connected to England and Scotland, which means they share the same supermarkets, the artisanal vegan cheese sellers who sell online can also post their vegan cheeses between the countries as they all use the same postal service, the Royal Mail.

How do we know there are so many vegan cheeses available to buy in Wales? The answer is simple!

We've been slowly building the biggest database of vegan cheese anywhere online, when we find new vegan cheeses you can buy, we add it to the database.

We tag and categorise the vegan cheeses in a number of ways and when we categorise them as available in the United Kingdom and Wales, they'll appear here below automatically.

If you're looking for a specific vegan cheese and you're in the UK, head to the database and you can filter the cheeses, amongst other filters, to show you whats available.

Welsh Inspired Vegan Cheeses

Wales isn't renowned for cheese, more so leeks, castles and dragons, but it does have some known cheese types.

Even so, it does have a few cheese types, such as Caerphilly, which originated in South Wales. We are unaware of anyone making a vegan caerphilly alternative yet but are always on the lookout. 

That doesn't mean there aren't Welsh inspired vegan cheeses and here we look at and share with you a handful of vegan cheeses that are inspired by Wales and created by vegan cheese makers in Wales and further afield.

You can see that some artisans use Wales as an inspiration or even Welsh dishes as an inspiration, such as vegan Welsh Rarebit, which we talked about at the beginning of the article.
