PeaceCheese is a small, 100% plant-based cheese alternative company. It was in 2006 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, that PeaceCheese came to life in the most wondrous way. People from all over the world fell in love with PeaceCheese at local Chiang Mai cafes, health food stores, festivals, events and fundraisers. It was a truly magical beginning and we are so grateful for this auspicious start.


In 2010, after fours years of operating in Thailand, PeaceCheese moved from the land of smiles to sunny San Diego, California and we are spreading the love one PeaceCheese at a time. We can't wait for you to try it! Reenie, the creator of PeaceCheese, will tell you how it all began:


PeaceCheese is in a category of its own. It's not quite like traditional cheese, or any vegan cheese or cheese alternative you may have tried, but it is 100% plant-based, vegan, dairy free, lactose free, casein free, cholesterol free and gluten free; and it slices, shreds, sauces and spreads.


PeaceCheese is available in four irresistible varieties and is a healthy and delicious alternative to dairy cheese. Enjoy it on its own or substitute it in any recipe that calls for cheese. Salads, pasta, sandwiches, wraps, burritos, quesadillas, pizza, calzone, stir fries, oven bakes and counting... It's that easy.


With PeaceCheese, there's no compromising taste for feeling good. We made it that way! So there really is 100% JOY in every bite. Fall in love with all four!


Cashew Glow:

Hard enough to slice and shred, this creamy blend of cashews, miso and harmonizing herbs will illuminate your body with full-of-life flavors of savory and irresistible. *Contains soy in the form of organic, non-gmo Miso, Japanese fermented soybean paste.


Jalapeno Love:

Similar in taste to a Jalapeno Jack Cheddar, and with a semi-hard consistency that slices and shreds. "Love", "life" and "spice it up" are the three hot ingredients in this knock-your-socks off blend of pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, jalapeno peppers and cashews.  *Soy-Free


Pumpkin Sun:

Similar in taste to a mild Cheddar, and with a semi-hard texture that slices and shreds. This flavor of fun under the sun is glowing with free-flowing, super-charged goodness, shining with rays of pumpkin, flax seeds and cashews.



Cosmic Sauce:

An out of this world, healthy alternative to a classic Alfredo cheese sauce. This creamy rapture of cashews, miso and savory herbs will send you flying through the stratosphere in search for what was truly sent from above. *Contains soy in the form of organic, non-gmo Miso, Japanese fermented soybean paste.




















"In a tiny rustic kitchen in Chiang Mai, Thailand, amidst ancient Buddhist temples, traditional Thai healing and the freshest and most flavorful cooking, I was inspired to create the first vegan cheese in Thailand. I had been vegan for a long time and missed the variety of vegan food products available in California, where I'd lived before moving to Thailand. I also had Thai friends who loved imported cheese and rich cream sauces like alfredo, but were either watching their weight, allergic to dairy or lactose intolerant. That's when the idea of healthy vegan cheese came to mind. So I camped out in my tiny Thai kitchen with an old food processor I'd brought from California and two countertop gas burners and took on this vegan cheese challenge. I experimented for four months on my first recipe, cataloging each change along the way, until I finally got the taste and texture just right. I was so excited that I invited friends over that same night to sample my first vegan cheese and they loved it. With a personal satisfaction and deep peace of mind like I'd never felt before, I drifted off to sleep and awoke from a dream that would change my life forever. It was a dream of a recipe for another vegan cheese; each ingredient and measurement handwritten in pencil on small spiral bound notebook paper. Excited and curious, I went to the local market and bought every ingredient on the list, some I had never even heard of. Back in my tiny kitchen, I followed the recipe of my dreams down to 1/32 of a teaspoon and it was out-of-this-world. I haven't changed a thing since. That first vegan cheese challenge somehow opened the doors to an entire product line of vegan cheeses, which I've named PeaceCheese. Recipe after recipe in dreams and daydreams, PeaceCheese has made it's way into world and each new recipe continues to be as magical as the first."  




While PeaceCheese is quite literally the stuff of dreams, it couldn't be more down to earth. Handmade, handcrafted and personally inspired, PeaceCheese is made with 100% plant-based people friendly, animal friendly and planet friendly ingredients.

Our mission at PeaceCheese is to delight, surprise, and energize people with 100% plant-based cheese alternatives. Not just vegetarians or vegans, but people of all backgrounds, habits, and lifestyles. PeaceCheese transforms simple plant-based foods like cashews and pumpkin into something so magical and delicious that people do not feel they are giving up anything for this pleasure, not even their health.


Life-honoring and life-giving, PeaceCheese brings us joy, energy and connection.




PeaceCheese is delicious all on its own, without anything else. It’s delicious not in only a substitute or alternative kind of way like many other vegan and dairy-free cheeses. Some PeaceCheese customers who are not vegan or dairy free actually prefer PeaceCheese to regular cheese simply because they love the taste. It’s that good. It’s also easy to build an entire meal around PeaceCheese. It’s flavorful and hearty enough to hold its own and also transform something simple into something gourmet. What makes PeaceCheese so special is that people seem to choose it for the simple fact that they love it, and that it’s 100% plant-based is an added bonus.
