Celebrating kindness with new eatery awards on World Vegan DayNovember 1st, 2017
SAFE is recognising four restaurants from across the country for their spectacular plant-based menus to mark World Vegan Day. The annual EAT KIND Awards were presented to:
- Tart Bakery in Auckland for ‘Best of the North Island’
- Boquita in Wellington for ‘Best Themed Cuisine’
- Portershed in Christchurch for ‘Best Newcomer’
- Let Them Eat Vegan in Dunedin for ‘Best of the South Island’.
This is the inaugural year for SAFE’s EAT KIND Awards which recognise culinary excellence in New Zealand. The annual awards are a fun way to mark World Vegan Day and celebrate the diversity of vegan options available in New Zealand.
One of the recipients, Emma Wood, owner of Portershed said, “To be recognised by an organisation such as SAFE is one of the most validating things we could hear. It’s an honour and a privilege to be supporting such a passionate, growing community, determined to live a life of kindness and good health.”
These eateries go above and beyond to cater to the growing demand for plant-based food. SAFE is pleased to recognise them for their spectacular food offerings.
There has never been a better time than now for us to cut animal products out of our diets. With the number of animals on cruel, intensive farms increasing and with only a third of Kiwis being at a healthy weight, we need to make kind choices.
