PLEASE NOTE: Couriers cannot deliver to PO Box or parcel lockers, they can only deliver to residential or business addresses.
If delivering to a unit please make sure access to building is accessible for the courier. They will leave outside building if no
one is home as they cannot take perishables back to the depot. We cannot take responsibility for lost or stolen parcels if there
is no access to your unit door. It is not us that delivers personally.
Are your products vegan?
What is TVP?
TVP is made from soy. It stands for textured vegetable protein. It is a by-product of soya oil
extraction. The process involves separating the protein from the whole soybean.
TVP is frequently used as a meat replacement because it has a texture that resembles
ground beef, so it's an ideal meat substitute in spaghetti bolognese, shepherds pie, tacos and
TVP is a soy protein that is also low in calories, carbohydrates and fat. It Is high in protein
and is a good source of essential amino acids.
What is Seitan?
Seitan is made from the protein of wheat. The word comes from the Japanese words
“sei”, meaning “to be, become, made of”, and “tan”, as in tanpaku, which means
“proteins”. Freely translated: “made of proteins”.
More than 1,000 years ago, seitan was prepared by Buddhists in China to replicate meat
dishes, and was also used in Japan as a substitute for meat or fish.
Can your products be frozen?
Yes our products can be frozen and will last at least 9 months in the freezer. The sausage skins
are delicate and are fragile when wet so we suggest cooking them from frozen to stop the skins
from tearing when cooking. The Smokey Rasher are best defrosted together as they are hard
to separate when frozen.

How much is delivery?
The courier company has increased their prices again, but we still partially subsidise the shipping so it makes it affordable for everyone (but most customers are within the 5kg range).So your contribution towards the shipping is greatly appreciated. $13 flat rate for Sydney metro, $15 for outer Sydney - Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Newcastle areas. All zones in QLD, VIC, ACT and some out of Sydney areas all start with $15 for 5kg (that's still rougly 7-10 packs of sausages, but not as many lasagnes) and then for every additional 5kg there is an additional charge of $5, this weight has to include the box and the ice. The shipping calculator will add this up for you.
Can I specify a delivery time?
Unfortunately the courier company we use cannot specify a specific delivery time.
Can I track my order once it has been dispatched?
Yes we can provide you with the tracking number on request so you can track your orders progress. The courier company should send you an email with the tracking info. Please check your spam.
Can I order online and pick up from your store?
Unfortunately no. Our store can only hold stock for what it needs for that day, the factory and the store are not in the same location.
All orders are sent off from our factory and they receive all the paperwork.
The only exception is christmas time and that is for the Festive Roast and gravy only.
Do you ship outside Australia?
Unfortunately not at this stage.
How long do your products keep for?
All our products need to be refrigerated, our products are good for at least 4 weeks after the date we make them (with the exception of the seitan products with are 8 weeks), they are all totally fine to freeze and will keep a shelf life of 9 months. Thaw back only has a shelf life of 2 weeks, this is because of the water content created, longer than 2 weeks and the packets will puff up. Once opened you have 4-5 days to consume your food.
