NZ Dairy Free Awards winners

Dairy Free Awards 2021

Welcome to the second of our Dairy Free Awards, in which we find out which are the most popular plant based products in the dairy alternatives market in New Zealand. Being vegan is easier than ever with these amazing foods to help you create your favourite dishes.

We have six categories of products to choose and within those categories, we have our NZ made and the imported ones. With so many delicious and nutritious foods to choose from, it was very difficult even to whittle down to the nominated companies and products. If your product did not make it this year, please get in touch to ensure you are considered for next year’s Awards.
