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!

You can find our Camembert style at Sainsbury’s and ASDA, and very soon in Tesco! Our Mozzarella & Cheddar Grated Blend and Mozzarella Block are also available at ASDA. Check out our Instagram @nurishh.uk to be updated on new products and promotions.
Is your packaging recyclable?
Not yet, but it will change soon. Bel has acquired the brand in 2020 and we’ve been working hard since then to switch to recyclable packaging. From early 2022, the blocks and the slices will have 100% recyclable packaging, made from over 50% of already recycled PET (the most recycled plastic). Our grated range will also have a brand new pack, mostly made from FSC certified paper.
Why do you use coconut oil? Where is it sourced?
Coconut oil contributes to the texture and especially the taste of our products as it does not bring any strong aftertaste like cashew nut (fermented taste). 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.
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.

Our grated alternatives will melt deliciously on your pasta or in your toastie, it will amp-up any of your dishes!

Do your products contain calcium? Why have you added Vitamin B12?
We enriched our products with calcium up to 600 mg / 100g because calcium is essential for the formation of bones and teeth, the construction of muscles. We added Vitamin B12 to help people who greatly reduce their consumption of fish and meat to avoid deficiency in Vitamin B12. As a reminder, Vitamin B12 effectively contributes to cell division, essential to produce enough level of red blood cells.
Do your products contain artificial additives, flavours or colouring?
Although Nurishh products contain no artificial additives, our recipes do contain some 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. It’s the same for flavourings and colourings, we only used natural ones, such as paprika extract or beta carotene.
