Vegan cheese is one of the plant-based non-diary food products, which has been gaining significant popularity among the vegan and flexitatrian population. Dynamic changing food consumption pattern and increase in awareness among population regarding lactose intolerance drive the market growth. Furthermore, increase in animal welfare concerns coupled with rise in demand for diary analogue products further boost the market growth.
