The NZ Vegan Sausage Awards

NZ Vegan Sausage AwardsIn 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!

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
  • Hotdog
  • Sausage roll
  • Gluten Free
  • Kiwi Made
  • International
  • Supreme

We will be awarding both Kiwi made and international sausages, as well as an overall Supreme winner, so get your nominations in for your favourite vegan sausage by emailing us at
