Without the cow
We're in the business of making really good cheese
The tale of the dairy cheese we love today is over 2000 years old. It’s a food we’ve relished, worshiped, celebrated and developed into thousands of unique variations.
But right now, it’s causing irreparable harm to animals, the planet, and often ourselves.
At New Culture, we’re a team of cheese-loving scientists using our expertise to modernize the art of cheesemaking, to make sure we can all enjoy its magic for another 2000 years.
We harness the wonders of fermentation

THE SECRETS OF DELICIOUS, ANIMAL-FREE DAIRY CHEESE
SOMETIMES, YOU JUST CAN’T BEAT TIME-HONORED METHODS
Taste the future without missing the past.
Our first cheese is mozzarella: the holy grail of pizza toppings, the queen of fresh cheese, the hero of a Caprese salad... the list goes on.
Our mozzarella is different to any other mozzarella you’ve tried, yet also remarkably similar. It’s got the same taste, texture, melt and stretch as the cheese we all know and love. But it’s also animal-free, lactose-free and planet-friendly.
And above all, it’s simply delicious.
