Hunt for best vegan saussies is on

For the fifth annual Vegan Sausage Awards, a new category of plant-based meat alternatives will be added to the usual sausage categories. The Awards will be taking place on 26th June at Khu Khu Eatery in Ponsonby, Auckland and Aaron Pucci and Jasbir Kaur are among the confirmed judges.

“The Vegan Society Awards work to reflect the variety and choice available in the plant-based world in Aotearoa. It is a delight to be able to increase the Sausage Award categories and showcase the many delicious plant-based pastrami and other deli meats made here in New Zealand,” explains Vegan Society Spokesperson Claire Insley.

Last year’s Supreme Winner was Plan*t Sage and Onion, which Judge Mike McRoberts noted “had an edge, a level of sophistication. It can be eaten in many different ways: Breakfast, BBQ etc. The sage flavour and the sweetness of onion makes it a joy!”

Sausage and deli meat alternative makers from Aotearoa and beyond are all welcome to enter this year’s awards. All products must be available in New Zealand.

“Vegan sausages are here to stay, they are healthier for you, better for the environment and are a more compassionate way of eating, whilst still enjoying your favourite foods,” says Insley. “With over 8 billion people and rising, the move towards a plant-based economy is ever more pressing. Plant-based sausages are a fun and easy way to look after our planet and our health.”

The trend for plant-based foods is continuing and likely to do so for the foreseeable future, as noted in this recent report
