This company is a true passion project, and sharing our products with customers has been a labour of love. Founder Margaret Coons worked as a chef at Veg Out Restaurant in London, Ontario for five years prior to starting the business.

After completing her undergraduate degree, an Honours Specialization in English Language and Literature, at the University of Western Ontario, she shifted her focus to fromology, preparing plant-based foods, and sharing her passion for vegan cooking with others.

In recent years, Margaret has completed Rouxbe’s Plant-Based Professional Certification, appeared on Rogers London daytime television with creative vegan cooking demonstrations, and offered cooking lessons and classes, including appearances at London’s Veg Fest and the Covent Garden Market Kitchen.

Margaret has provided private catering, helped other culinary establishments create vegan recipes, and started the business by opening a booth at local Farmers’ Markets to sell her popular 100% dairy-free cheeses.

Margaret is thrilled that from these humble beginnings, that Nuts for Cheese products can now be found across Canada and beyond. She is proud that all the cashew cheeses remain hand-crafted by a remarkably talented and passionate team in her facility in London, Ontario.

Our 100% dairy-free cheeses all start with a base of cultured organic cashew milk and are chock full of other natural ingredients.
