Westland Kaas and Those Vegan Cowboys will launch a new vegetable alternative for cheese next year.  The two companies will start the line through a joint new company. The plant-based alternative will be launched under a new brand which shall  become an umbrella brand for other products. In addition to the cooperation with Westland, Those Vegan Cowboys will continue to focus on the development of plant-based „dairy“ products through microbial fermentation.


Westland Kaas, based in Huizen, was founded in 1936 by the Westland family. The family is 100% owner of the company with Henny Westland as CEO. The company has cheese produced by various Dutch manufacturers and owns the brands Maaslander, Old Amsterdam and Trenta.


Those Vegan Cowboys is a company that was founded in early 2020 by Jaap Korteweg and Niko Koffeman. In a laboratory in Ghent, a team of 23 people is working on the production of casein by fermentation.
