Animal welfare and a desire to reduce carbon emissions inspired Betty Zoller (MBA’15) to adopt a vegetarian diet. But when Zoller was looking for a nut-free cheese alternative, there weren’t any options. Many plant-based cheese alternatives are made using a base of cashew nuts or coconut oil, and seeing a gap in the available options, Zoller founded Aviva. The Montreal-based company uses chick peas, lentils, beans and seeds to make plant-based alternatives for common cheeses like cheddar, gouda and feta. It’s currently working with select partners, and is now taking pre-orders for its products.
