We have always strived to create our products with the most minimal, healthful, and eco-conscious ingredients available. Everything we use is organic and, seeing as we know how important transparency is when we make our own food choices, we feel that’s important for us to give to our customers as well.
We have a little unwritten ‘law’ in our cheesery that we don’t use any ingredients we wouldn’t eat in our own daily food preparation at home. This means no preservatives, no fillers, no ingredients that could do weird things to our bodies or our digestive systems or those of our children. We keep things simple, clean, healthy, and pronounceable! Hehe.
Though we do our best to use local Australian ingredients wherever possible, the core of our products uses ingredients that unfortunately cannot be grown or produced in Australia in large enough amounts (cashew nuts and coconut oil). So we have taken a strict approach to choosing which suppliers we use that originate overseas. We only work with companies who are 100% committed to never using any child, slave, or animal labour, and who work to support and give back to the communities they work within. The creation of local jobs, and education of local communities, means that we are not just supporting other small businesses by making use of these amazing products but we are also supporting other small communities.
All our glass jars are a custom designed regular mouth mason jar, with a leak proof and airtight lid. In the case of the Persian Feta this lid is a traditional two piece ‘preserving’ style lid that even further eliminates the risk of oil leaks from your cheese. This means that you can reuse your glass jar over and over, in a multitude of different ways, in both hot and cold temperatures, rather than sending that jar into the waste system. Unfortunately, glass is no longer recycled much in Australia so the more we can avoid putting in the bin, whichever bin it is, the better! And if you’re really keen to reduce waste, you can even return your empty clean jars to us and we will sterilise and reuse them ????
We have customers who reuse their jars as reusable takeaway coffee cups, for herb and spice storage, snack jars for kids, to make gifts with, in their meal and lunch prep, to make breakfast puddings, and even around the house as soap dispensers, art and craft storage, and so many other ways. There are some amazing ‘mason jar attachments’ available these days online that can turn your used Vegan Dairy jars into an array of cool and creative new handy things!
