One of our Young Enterprise Groups for 2020 is Angel’s Cheesecakes. Here’s a run down on this innovative business from Production Director Jessica Mak.
Angel’s Cheesecakes produces 100% vegan, no-bake, dairy-free, soy-free, low in fat and sugar cheesecake. Our cheesecakes are 100% freshly made as the ingredients locally sourced, made with no additives, colours or preservatives. In doing so, we aim to promote individual and environmental wellbeing.
What influenced Angel’s Cheesecakes to come up with the product idea of making non-baked cheesecake is that cheesecake is usually associated with being high in fat and sugar content. In just one slice of chocolate Oreo mudslide cheesecake, you get 1,050 calories, 71 grams of fat, and 34 grams of saturated fat. For this reason, Angel’s Cheesecakes wanted to create a delicious, healthier option for cheesecake lovers.
Angels cheesecake has three layers: The first layer is a base which is vegan biscuits with dissolved vegan butter. The second layer is vegan cream cheese and lastly, the top layer is filled with toppings such as fruits which will vary depending on the season like mixed berries, strawberry, mango or vegan dark chocolate (seen in the picture above).
Environmentally and culturally sustainable: Angel’s’ Cheesecakes has chosen to reflect Kaitiakitanga as one of the aspects for the business where the packaging for our product is a reusable glass jar. The glass jar packaging has a Māori tag incorporated with a unique Māori word that also has an English translation. It’s a great way for people to learn a little bit of Māori. At the same time, this enhances the Māori culture awareness in society.
