The Fry Family Food Co’s Vegan Brioche Burger Buns are on Woolworths’ shelves nationwide, adding a new element to the plant-based burger meal.
Plant-based options are growing in popularity in Australia, with Euromonitor finding the region as the third-fastest-growing market in the world, growing by $60 million to $215 million in 2020.
“Our brand-new Brioche Burger Buns are fluffy and sweet, and will make the perfect BFF for any of our burgers,” said Fry director Tammy Fry.

varieties in the Plant-Based Latte range to mix with different non-dairy milks.
The vegan range includes Almond, Coconut and Oat, blended with Arabica and Robusta coffee beans.
Nestlé Beverages head of marketing Olga Starush said: “Nescafé coffee is loved by Australians and we do not take this for granted. We are always looking for the next exciting innovation idea.
“With the launch of Nescafé Gold Plant-Based Latte range, we are bringing the non-dairy trend out of cafés and into home. Now coffee aficionados who prefer plant-based milk alternatives can enjoy their favourite lattes anytime, anywhere.”

the gin will be available around the world until its 2021 release.
The Shiraz grapes picked for the gin in the Yarra Valley have also been harvested
“in perfect nick”, despite the recent bushfire season.
Four Pillars co-founder Cameron Mackenzie said they were lucky the immediate

for most of summer. Low fruit set and small bunch weights intensified the fruit flavours but the cool conditions (yes, a very cool summer) has allowed great spice, red berry and natural acidity.”
Around 100 tonnes of Shiraz has been sourced from Punt Road, Boat O’Craigo, Yering Station and Faraday Estate, as well as the neighbouring vineyards in the Macedon Ranges and Yea Valley.
The 2020 Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin has an alcohol level of 37.8 per cent, and is available in selected retailers, the Four Pillars distillery in Healesville and online, as well as at the new Four Pillars Gin Laboratory in Sydney.
