We got an early Christmas present in November when we found out that we had been voted “Australia’s Favourite Vegan Business” in the Aduki/Uproar Awards. Thank you to everyone who voted for us and everyone who has supported us over the past (almost) ten years. We are very proud to be your favourite; we love what we do and are so happy you do too!

These deeply luxurious and seductive truffles are infused with organic, biodynamic French Champagne. Presented in an attractive, gold and black square box these are sure to delight every chocolate connoisseur.
We all know that Bounty Burgers are "meaty" and delicious, high in protein, low in fat and made here in Australia but did you know that they now also have an garlic and onion free option for people who avoid these foods for health or religious reasons?
Gelatine-free treats! Frooty Fruits are delightfully chewy and fruity pastilles and Fruit Jellies are delicious organic bear-shaped fruit jellies. Both are bursting with organic goodness and make the ideal natural treat for kids.
All natural custard powder that makes rich, creamy custard almost instantly. Great to pour over your Christmas pudding!
Christmas is the perfect time to share some cruelty-free, vegan cheer! Here are some gift ideas, guaranteed to please.
Our beautifully presented Gift Hampers are packed with luxurious cruelty-free products and gourmet vegan goodies and can be delivered anywhere in Australia. Or you can simply give a Gift Voucher so they can choose their own treats.

Since no government regulation exists for cruelty-free labeling of personal care and household products, companies can essentially make any animal testing claims they want. So how is the conscientious consumer able to discern which products are truly cruelty-free? Choose Cruelty Free Australia was created to provide consumers with the most accurate information possible about a company's no-animal testing policy.

Banjo is one of 36 turkeys who will not be turning up on a table this Christmas; Banjo was rescued from the horrors of intensive farming by caring people who took him straight to the safety of A Poultry Place Animal Sanctuary. Banjo’s new life of waking up on a bed of straw and spending the morning on a grassy field before retreating to the shade of fruit trees to nap as the day warms up is a far cry from the windowless shed he came from. That shed denied him the freedom to do any of the things that come naturally to him and his mates, like dust-bathing, running, flapping his wings and dancing.
