PLANT-BASED, DAIRY-FREE VEGAN CHEESES, CHEESECAKES, SNACKS, SANDWICHES AND MORE. Cultured Kindness is a small-batch producer of ethically-sourced, vegan cashew cheeses based in Portland, Oregon. Founded in 2017, Cultured Kindness provides sustainable, artisanal vegan cheese by addressing the huge demand for humane and environmentally-friendly alternatives to dairy-based cheese. Our mission is to spread ethical veganism by removing the obstacles that prevent people from choosing a vegan lifestyle. We believe that veganism is better for the planet, for individual health, and most certainly for the animals who suffer in the dairy industry. We differentiate our cheeses from the ingredients we use to the charity donations we make. We use organic, free-trade cashews in our cheeses, as well as many other organic ingredients. When possible, we source ingredients locally. Cultured Kindness conducts business as a socially responsible member of its community. At times during the year, we donate a portion of our proceeds to various animal rights organizations, animal rescues, and social equality movements.
