The NZ Vegan Sausage Awards

NZ Vegan Sausage Awards

The NZ Vegan Sausage Awards

In 2019 we brought you the first of our Awards to celebrate the humble vegan sausage. We had an amazing array of competitors from home and abroad, showcasing their sausages, hotdogs and sausage rolls. Our 2020 Awards were even more popular and our third awards in 2021 have produced some surprising winners!

Who doesn’t love a breakfast banger? A summer sausage sizzle? We want to show NZ that 100% plant based sausages are just as tasty, fun and versatile as traditional ones. There are some fabulous vegan sausages available in our supermarkets these days and we encourage more people to give them a try.

We want to showcase who has the best sausages! We are keen to award hotdogs and sausage rolls, so bring us your best of those too. They will go into the running for the following awards:

  • Breakfast
  • Banger
  • Hotdog
  • Sausage roll
  • Speciality
  • Chorizo
  • Supreme

Our awards in 2021 were for New Zealand made and imported sausages, including an overall Supreme winner, 

Our 2021 Awards were held on 28th June at The Butcher’s Son. Judges were vegan comedian Tom Sainsbury and Food and Beverage Industry Judge, Aaron Pucci. They said this year’s Supreme Winner was “A very authentic sausage. Great texture, appearance and flavour.”
