Got questions? We’ve got the answers.
What’s your story?
It all started in 2013 when the Jouault family, who’s been producing quality French cheeses for over two generations, discovered that the father was intolerant to milk. They developed a range of plant-based alternatives that everyone in the family could enjoy. Our mission is to bring joy to everyone at the table with delicious plant-based food!

Is your packaging recyclable?
Nurishh Garlic & Herbs Spread packaging is 100% recyclable. The trays for our blocks and slices range are 100% recyclable, and made with already recycled content. The wooden box for the alternative to Camembert will be switched to a recyclable cardboard box in in April 2024. We’re still working on finding a more sustainable option for our grated range, as flexible plastic is not currently recyclable in the UK.
Why do you use coconut oil? Where is it sourced?
Coconut oil contributes to the texture and especially the taste of our products. The aftertaste would be much stronger with ingredients like cashew nuts (fermented taste) for example. To date, the coconut oil used in Nurishh products comes from the Philippines, Indonesia and the Marshall Islands. It’s almost non-existent in Western countries, thus making local supply impossible. Bel Group’s partners must systematically take note of our “Code of Good Business Practices” which is based on seven key principles and can be found here. Nurishh Garlic & Herbs Spread has a unique recipe made with sunflower seeds, and no coconut oil. We’re constantly improving our recipes to improve the taste and sustainable profile of our ingredients.
Do I need to keep Nurishh products refrigerated?
Yes, Nurishh alternatives to cheese must be kept between +2°C and +8°C so put them back in the fridge as soon as you’ve finished enjoying it! The Camembert Style specifically is sensitive to variations of temperature so if you take it out for a picnic, be sure to eat it all or keep it in a cooler! 😊 For optimal product taste, consume our products quickly after opening.
What is the shelf life of Nurishh alternatives to cheese once opened?
Once open, we advise you to consume it quickly for the best taste experience! We cannot advise a specific amount of days because it all depends of the environment in which the product is kept, the cutlery you use, etc.

Do your products contain calcium? Why have you added Vitamin B12?
We recognise the importance of Calcium and Vitamin B12 as part of healthy, varied and balanced lifestyle. We enriched our products with calcium up to 600mg/100g because calcium is essential for the maintenance of normal bones and contributes to normal muscle function. We added Vitamin B12 to help people who greatly reduce their consumption of fish and meant to avoid deficiency in Vitamin B12. As a reminder, Vitamin B12 has a role in the process of cell division and contributes to the normal red blood cell formation.
Do your products contain artificial additives, flavours or colouring?
Nurishh products contain no artificial additives nor artificial flavourings or artificial colours. Our recipes contain only natural additives that play an essential role in the texture and taste. They are all are clearly recognized and authorized by national laws and European Food Safety regulations. We only used natural colours, such as paprika extract and carotenes.
