Tina da Rosa and Steven Rifkin realized their dream of creating a range of organic innovative, wholesome, high quality foods and snacks through their first company Kool Organics established in Amsterdam 2012.
By 2017, Tina and Steven shifted gears to focus on a growing desire to address urgent issues related to climate change and animal welfare. This lead to the creation of organic plant-based alternatives to cheese. In March 2018, Rosie & Riffy products were launched at a vegan fair in Utrecht’s Jaarbeurs.
Their journey continues to this date, with a focus on improving taste, developing new varieties, and expanding their production capabilities. As a conscious consumer, you will discover a unique and memorable dairy-free alternative to cheese.
