Questions About Our Cheese
Yes, Treeline Cheese really is cheese!
We start with sustainably sourced Brazilian cashew nuts, grind them, and then culture them with a vegan probiotic culture called Lactobacillus Acidophilus. From there we add our select herbs and spices for specific flavors. They contain no dairy milk or animal by-products, so it’s cheese that is both good for you and for the planet!
We believe that the use of animals in the production of dairy products is harsh and unsustainable. There is a better way and that way is plant-based. We’re proud to say our cheeses are completely free from animal products and always will be.
The Lactobacillus Acidophilus that is used in our products is a vegan probiotic culture that is grown without the use of any dairy. The L. Acidophilus we use is fermented using exclusively non-GMO ingredients.
Yes! All of our products are certified kosher parve by KOF-K.
Yes! All of our products are Non-GMO Project Verified.
Yes! No gluten is processed or used in our facility.
All of our products are made from raw cashews and are not cross-contaminated with peanuts in sourcing or production at any time.

Yes! Our cheeses contain no milk and therefore no lactose.
Our cheese softens when heated and browns when grilled. It can also be fried. However it does not stretch. This is because it is all natural and has no casein (a milk protein) or other melting agents in it.
Any cheeses ordered online will arrive with approximately 3 weeks of shelf life, the same as you may find at your local grocer, and should be consumed within 1-2 weeks (depending on the item) of opening or prior to the sell-by date, whichever comes first.
Since our cheeses are perishable and made without preservatives, they need to be stored in the refrigerator to ensure freshness.
Our cheeses can be frozen for short periods of time, however their texture will be adversely affected the longer they are frozen. They must be consumed within a few days of defrosting.
Our packaging is designed to be minimal and to maintain freshness and shelf-life so that our products can be as natural as possible. The French-Style and Cream Cheese cheese containers are made of 50% recycled plastic. All of our packaging can be recycled.
Questions About Our Online Store
Yes, absolutely! Treeline products are available in about 3,000 stores nationwide! Please use our Store Locator page to find our products on your local grocery shelves.
Due to the high cost of shipping perishable goods – both financial and environmental – shipping individual cheeses is unfortunately very expensive and inefficient. While we do offer pre-selected Single Flavor and Variety packs, we are pleased to now offer Choose Your Own 4 & 8 Packs!
If you sign up for our online newsletter, you'll receive up to date information on promotions, along with product news and delicious recipes!
Our cheeses are perishable which means they need to be delivered within 2 days. Addresses that cannot be reached within 2 days using ground transportation will unfortunately be charged 2 day air fees based on Fedex rates. We are very sorry about this and hope to expand our shipping zones soon!
All orders are shipped in insulated packages with cold packs to help your cheeses arrive cold! Once they have been delivered, they should be refrigerated immediately. We cannot accept responsibility for cheeses that are warm due to being left outside for long periods of time after delivery so please be sure to keep an eye on tracking or sign up for delivery alerts, if possible.
The cheeses will arrive with a minimum of 3 weeks of shelf life. Please consume within one week of sell by date, or opening, whichever is earlier. If you find you cannot get to a cheese prior to the expiration, they can be frozen when unopened!
Treeline is a fresh, perishable product. We do not ship late in the week to avoid any risk that your package will be delayed over the weekend.
When your package arrives, please remove the cheeses from the box and refrigerate them immediately.
Our shipping boxes are made of recycled and recyclable materials. Please reuse or recycle the box.
The brown Temperpack insulation is curbside recyclable as well.
While the ice packs are also reusable, they can also be safely disposed of should they not be needed. Simply cut the corner and pour the gel into the trash or spread (once diluted with water) in an isolated area of the yard or garden where pets do not have access, then dispose of the rinsed film in a #4 recycle bin. Whole gel packs may be disposed of in your waste bin according to local and state laws.
Unfortunately at this time we are not able to ship outside of the lower 48 of the United States. We plan to expand to Canada and outside of North America very soon!
