100 per cent vegan, YAY! is leading the way when it comes to sustainable foods. What inspired you to start a fully vegan company?
We want to make going vegan easy by creating super delicious vegan foods. So many people that have told us that our feta has helped them finally give up dairy, which makes us so happy!
Why is it important that we are more mindful of food sustainability?
It’s really important to us to minimise our impact on the planet as we grow our business, which is why we have chosen home compostable packaging for our pies. We also use biodegradable bubble wrap in our deliveries, and recycle as much as possible.
Why is veganism important to you?
Whilst we love eating amazing foods, we also don’t want to cause suffering. By going vegan we can have amazing deliciousness every day and be completely healthy, all without causing harm to other creatures. It’s also the best way to minimise our contribution to climate change. YAY!
Tell us a bit more about the food you offer? What are some of your most popular items?
We do a marinated vegan feta, which was voted 10/10 by vegan guide, Messy Veggies, and was voted Melbourne’s favourite vegan feta, by a huge margin! We also do vegan pies, available in stores throughout Victoria and Tasmania, and spinach and feta triangles.
Do you have any upcoming sales or anything special in store for World Vegan Day?
Yes, we’ll be launching a new pie flavour at World Vegan Day in Melbourne at the Showgrounds on Sunday November 10.
