Our Story

It started back in 1951 in Baranello a small commune in the Province of Campobasso in Italy where a young Gino Albiniano at the tender age of 11 learnt how to make Mozzarella cheese by hand.

30 years later after moving to the UK, Gino and all his knowledge decided to start manufacturing Mozzarella cheese in Loughborough supplying wholesalers up and down the country. At the turn of 2002 due to the increasing price of milk compared to the competitive price of Mozzarella being imported from the continent, the firm decided to stop manufacturing.

Today FDL Cheese is run by owners Victor (Gino’s son) and Phil (Gino’s Son-in-Law) who supply not just cheese and dairy, but also non-dairy products to pizzerias, restaurants, delis, health stores and schools throughout the Midlands.

Victor and Phil have recognised the increasing demand from their customers for an alternative, dairy-free cheese product in the growing vegan market.

With this in mind, they decided to set up the website ‘Vegan Cheese Shop’ in 2018 to provide a modern next day delivery, subscription and customer rewards service for vegan cheese lovers.

Using their industry knowledge, Vegan Cheese Shop supplies a range of Violife products all across the UK, which is regarded by many as the best vegan cheese, not only because of its great taste but because it is a nut-free, dairy-free, and soya free cheese, which makes it suitable for people with different morals and health concerns.
