Maison Riviera, the number one selling alternative to dairy yogurt, introduces its collection of dairy-free cheeses made with oats grown in Canada


Varennes, Quebec, October 04th, 2022 – Maison Riviera, creator of plant-based trends, innovates by offering its first line of dairy-free cheeses made with oats grown in Canada and renews its line of Oat-Based Vegan Delights.

At Maison Riviera, we are aware of the role we play and are committed to an active research and development process that encompasses all aspects of our business, from the selection of our ingredients to the jar. We are constantly evolving and adapting to offer you products that are consistent with our values, without compromising on taste or nutritional values.

The oats we choose are healthy and nutritious, and come from sustainable and ecological crop. In fact, oats require 10% less water than soya, and 95% less water than almonds! For all its qualities (taste, versatility, nutrition and ecology), we believe that oats are the king of plants. That's why we've chosen to promote this crop, which is gaining in popularity with Canadian consumers, who voted for this ingredient in our Oat-Based Vegan Greek Style launched in January.

As a result, we are pleased to offer three complete lines of 100% plant-based products, made in Canada with certified gluten-free oats grown in Canada.

In addition, our recipes are free of the following allergens and unnecessary additives : dairy, gluten, soy, palm oil, nuts, cholesterol, eggs, peanuts, preservatives, and artificial colours and flavours.
