Hi there, we’re Hello Friend Foods.

They say that the best ideas are the ones that solve problems.

In the summer of 2015, our co-founder Bree Gaudette realised that she was searching for something that didn't actually exist. Well, at least not in Melbourne, Australia.

Among the few available vegan cheeses, she couldn't find anything that tasted remotely close to the dairy cheeses she remembered eating.

"Where are all the great vegan cheeses?" Great question.

After simmering the idea on the back burner (literally), Hello Friend Foods was born. A company whose mission is to create delicious and cruelty free alternatives to traditional animal based foods. Bree was soon joined by Matthew Ronalds (numbers whiz, driver extraordinaire, and totally mad scientist).

After learning our way around a commercial kitchen and doing countless experiments, we quietly released our Fresh Mozzarella, which gave us the confidence boost to attempt Australia’s first vegan Haloumi for our official launch in April 2018.

Since then we’ve been supplying vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike. Living cruelty-free is the best decision we’ve ever made, and we’d love to help answer any questions you might have about this way of eating and thriving.

Feel free to reach out and say hello, we greet everyone as a friend. x
