Plant based cheese - for all lovers of cheese

Cheese that not only looks and tastes great,
it's good for you!

Our cheeses

Artisa cheeses are real cheeses, crafted using traditional cheesemaking methods with only natural plant based ingredients used. They are cultured using a dairy free starter and cared for as they age to create products that are both exciting and unique.

We make our cheeses as simply as we can. Just cashews, water, Tasmanian sea salt and culture at their most basic. We let the cultures do the work. No laundry lists of additives to make them taste or look good, they already do!

We add the flavours of Tasmania to provide that something extra – glorious pepperberry, fragrant fennel pollen foraged from along the Derwent River, umami rich black garlic, applewood for smoking and vine ash made from spray free Tasmanian grapevines.

You can choose Artisa cheeses with confidence. You will be proud to share them with your family and friends. They look good, taste good and are good for you. These are cheeses that get you talking!
