All The Best Vegan Food That Hit Supermarkets In June 2021

It was a slow start to the month in terms of new products appearing in Woolworths and Coles, but it ended with a flurry of new brands hitting the shelves of the two major retailers. The most notable inclusions were a range of home brand plant-based and cruelty-free household cleaning products in Woolworths, and a huge range of vegan-friendly protein bars and powders taking up valuable shelf space in Coles. And for the first time in a while, Aldi and IGA also started introducing some noteworthy offerings, with some brands that would be more familiar to regular customers of Australia’s two largest supermarket chains.

For regular readers of this monthly round-up, you will now be aware that not all products listed here will be available in every store, but if enough people ask, you may just start to see more new products coming in at your local store. And likewise, you will have been made aware of the Fussy Vegan mobile app, which allows you to check an item’s vegan status by scanning the barcode or searching the product’s name, and also, as of this month (for iOS users), the parent company of particular brands, and their standing on animal-testing.

 

New Vegan Products At Aldi This Month

Many products at Aldi tend to come and go in a short period of time, so get in quick if you want to try something new, because it may not be there in a couple of months from now. Having said that, these new offerings are from brands that are fairly well established, either in other chains, or in Aldi itself. The Urban Eats Buffalo Cauliflower Wings have been getting rave reviews in various facebook groups, and there will be some serious disappointment if these are just a temporary line. The products of note are the Plantein Plant Based Schnitzels and V2 Foods Plant Based Mince, not because they are entirely new, but because they are better value at Aldi than in the larger supermarkets.

My Top Pick: If you are already a fan of either (or both!) the Plantein schnitzels or V2 mince, save yourself some money and get them from Aldi. The former is 20% cheaper in Aldi than Woolworths for the 2-pack, and the latter is $1.50 cheaper for an extra 100g in weight, making it almost 40% better value!

New Vegan Products At Woolworths This Month

In what seems like a never-ending procession of new plant-based meat alternatives, Woolworths have introduced a couple of new varieties in the ready-meals range from Fable, as well several pies and party pies from Pie Society. This seems like a response to Coles who have stocked the Fable meals for a number of months, and introduced a couple of their own home band pies last month. It will be interesting to see if this particular range of products grows over time. The other products of note for Woolworths this month are their eco-friendly Macro brand household cleaning products. Being a lower cost option than other eco-brands, it would be good to see them take some market share from the other larger companies which still test their products on animals.

My Top Pick: Whilst I’m a sucker for the convenience of a microwave meal, and have enjoyed the Fable meals that I have already tried, I’m actually keen to try the new pies from Pie Society with some homemade chips and salad, and the convenience of having vegan party pies in a major supermarket makes catering for parties or having friends over to watch the footy so much easier.

New Vegan Products At Coles This Month

Not to be left behind, Coles are also now stocking the range of the game-changing mushroom-based meat ready meals from Fable. In the snacks aisle you’ll find a new range veggie inspired Pringles chips in three flavours, only two of which are vegan. For those who need to avoid gluten in their diet, the We Love Cake caramel slice looks very tempting. There’s also two flavours of gluten-free pancake mix from Mt Elephant to choose from, as well as new GF versions of Kellogg’s famous Coco Pops and Sultana Bran breakfast cereals.   But perhaps the biggest shift of all is the incredible range of new plant-based protein bars, cookies and powders taking over the ‘health food’ aisle. There are products from all-vegan brands Amazonia, Botanika Blends, Greenback and Macro Mike, and plant-based offerings from industry-leading brands BSc (Body Science) and Muscle Nation, and more, including Coles’ own Perform brand of ‘plant protein’ powders and bars.

My Top Pick: As someone who is very active, I’ll be quite busy trying to sample all of the new vegan protein bars, especially from companies that I haven’t already discovered online, namely 180 Nutrition and Greenback, but also new products from Amazonia and BSc.

What’s new and vegan at IGA?

The only products of note at IGA this month are the new drinking blends from local vegan chocolate company Pana Organic. Whilst the Hot Chocolate powder is also available Woolworths, two other new products are exclusive to IGA stores, and are worth a special visit in my opinion.

My Top Pick: I can’t resist trying the Pana Organic Golden Crunch drink blend for something uniquely different, but I imagine the Chai blend will be something special as well.

  • Pana Organic Hot Chocolate Drink Blend 200g (also in Woolworths $9.00)
  • Pana Organic Golden Crunch Drink Blend 200g
  • Pana Organic Chai Drink Blend 200g
Stay tuned each month for the latest recap on the best vegan products to hit supermarkets across Australia.
