Wow; an awesome character building experience on a cold blustery wet Sunday morning for the Vegan Expo !!

The heavy rain didnt dampen spirits and stop eager people from all walks of life turning up at the Vegan Expo. It was fantastic to see so many stallholders and people in attendance.

And, of course, Envy Thai was there selling fantastic tasty Thai style Vegan food! Thank you to all those who came along and supported us ♥.

All the Pad Thai we sold at the expo was made using our own original recipe Pad Thai sauce. We had some sample jars of our soon to be released sauce out on display to give attendees a peek at whats just around the corner for those looking for something quick, tasty and easy to make at home that is of course Vegan.

Thank you to Vegan Society organizers and volunteers who made the day a great success.

Thank you to everyone who came to the Vegan Expo today! We hope you enjoyed the films, speakers, cooking demonstrations, live music, cruelty free product providers and fabulous food vendors.

Thank you to our sponsors - Christchurch City Council, Piko Wholefoods Co-Operative, PREP - Plant Based Meals, Plant Basics, The Nuovo Pantry, The Vegan Society of Aotearoa, New Zealand - for helping us put on this year’s expo.

And a huge thanks to all the volunteers who made it happen. The Christchurch Vegan Society is a registered charity and everything we do is with volunteers. If you’d like to get involved (ie with our monthly Vegan Night Mākete) send us a PM.

We’ve still got a bit to pack up, but we’ll soon be ready to start planning to do it all again next year! In the meantime, head along to the next Vegan Night Mākete at the Phillipstown Community Hub on Saturday November 28, 5pm-8pm.
