We were delighted to be featured in Om Nom magazine, who came to interview our founder Ellie, all about Kinda Co. and how she got started making cheese! They also included our recipe for Mac + Cheese. You can find out more about Om Nom mag here and check out their stockists for where you can pick up a copy!
***THANK YOU to everyone for getting in touch about the position - we were truly overwhelmed by the response and have now found some great new team members! We hope to expand again soon so that we might be able to bring on even more wonderful people on board! x ***
That's right - we are looking to expand our cheesy family and are on the search for some lovely individuals to help us grow our business. We are based in Angel N1, but often have events and markets all over London and beyond.
The hours will vary between evenings and weekends, when most of our events/markets are, or daytimes during the week when we produce and package our cheese. We are happy to consider hiring different people available at alternating times. For example if you can only do weekends or weekdays during the hours of 10-2 that could work providing you can be a little flexible.
No experience necessary - more important is that you are very reliable, passionate about the product and are keen to join our little team.
Perks of the job include being trained in food safety, competitive rate of pay, the exciting prospect of being involved in a brand new food start up, right at the beginning and of course lots of access to delicious cheese!
Please email Ellie at: firstname.lastname@example.org stating why you would like to work for us/why you think you would be suitable for the job and details of any relevant work experience. Please also indicate your availability regarding hours (and preference for weekend/day-time/evening).
If you have any questions at all please do get in touch on the above email!

Sat 24th March - Vegfest Brighton
Sat 14th April - Hackney Downs Vegan Market

Before Christmas we had the chance to speak to Laura Martin, writing for the New Statesman, all about how we started Kinda Co. and the opposition we have faced from the big bad dairy companies.
Some of you may already know about the trouble we had with our original name 'Kinda Cheese' that led to us becoming Kinda Co. We love our new name but it was a steep learning curve about the obstacles you can face when starting a business!
You can read the article in full here:
Personally we really enjoyed how sassy Ellie came across, and this was our favourite quote:
Nothing will stop us making and feeding you all the Kinda Co. cheese! <insert fist-bump emoji>
We have been really delighted to have so many requests for Christmas cheese orders but with time slipping away there are only a few chances left to pick up some cheese! So you wanna know how you can get hold of some Kinda in time for the festivities?
There are 2 options:
1. We will be at Hackney Downs vegan market this Saturday 16th from 11-5, please come early if you want to secure your favourite cheeses! We are expecting it to be a very busy day and as we usually sell out we would hate anyone to be disappointed.
2. If you cannot make it to the market but would be able to come and collect from Angel, N1 next Tuesday evening (19th) then please email us hello@thekindaco with your order - all cheeses that are available for Christmas are now pictured on our products page.
If you have any questions please leave a comment or drop us a line and we'll get back to you!
Also for everyone that is asking - we will be trialling our online shop in the new year. As a small business we currently have our hands very full with making all the cheese for our weekly markets in December! However we are having break from markets in January so that we can dedicate our time to getting our online store up and running!
If you want to get your paws on some of the tastiest dairy-free cheese around then come and say hello at one of our upcoming markets, and you can taste the goods for yourself!
