- Four N Twenty
Four N Twenty is an Australian brand that is well known by most, and loved by most too. In 2020 Four N Twenty have released there ‘meat-free’ pie. What is great news about this new entrant, is that is actually VEGAN! Four N Twenty cant technical label it as such given the factory it is produced in, but when you review the ingredients it is in fact vegan. Not only is it vegan, but it’s also bloody delicious too!
