ABOUT US

Artisa are your plant-based cheese board specialists.

Our cheeses are made in beautiful Tasmania - by hand, using traditional cheese making methods. Every cheese we produce carries a little of the love that we have for our island home.

Each cheese variety delivers our customers something special and often unique. It might be the flavour of local ingredients used, or the fact that we endeavour to buy local to support the community we are part of, or simply that each cheese is cared for individually from production right through to packing.

Being plant-based, our cheeses naturally have a low environmental impact and are cruelty free.

Artisa takes its triple bottom line approach to doing business seriously, with sustainability of the environment, community and profits all considered equally important.

Above all however, we are committed to producing quality, high health, beautifully presented plant-based cheeses for all cheese lovers.

 

Julie Martyn - Founder Artisa Plant-based cheese

 

About our Founder

Julie is a passionate foodie who has been vegetarian or vegan for most of her life. Before moving to Tasmania to follow her vegan food dream, Julie completed a PhD in molecular biology and worked in biomedical and clinical research in New Zealand, the United States and Australia.

Vegan cheesemaking is the perfect fusion of Julie's foodie passion and her lifelong love of "doing science". Taking inspiration from traditional cheese making, Julie and her team at Artisa are forging their own path in plant-based cheese production. It is a path that draws on their skills, passion and creative flair which they combine with the rigours of modern science; a path that has lead Artisa to become a leading producer of premium plant based cheeses that are uniquely Tasmanian.
