Thanks to our trailblazing friends at the Vegan Society of Aotearoa New Zealand (VSANZ), September 3 has become known as World Vegan Pie Day. This year, the VSANZ has kindly asked us to collaborate with them on a competition to search for the most true blue Down Under vegan pie flavour. We naturally jumped at the chance to help discover what Australians and New Zealanders reckon would be a bonza (or sweet as) flavour combo!
For the first 3 weeks of September, we are taking your suggestions via our social media for your best vegan pie flavour. With the AFL finals season underway, Vegan Australia also thought there's no better time to showcase Aussie creativity and our enduring love affair with pies and the footy. AFL Grand Final Day (September 25) is the final day to enter.
VSANZ has partnered with the multi-award-winning pie company Richoux Patisserie who will be helping to select their favourite flavour suggestion and send the winner a year's worth of vegan pies delivered to their door!!
Vegan Australia has partnered with meal delivery service, Herbidoor who will bake up a really big prize in their commercial kitchen to send to the Australian winner they select. Heribdoor already has two delicious Vegan Australia Certified pies on their menu. The winning suggestion may just end up being added to their repertoire!
