To celebrate World Vegan Day today Nourish Magazine has announced the winners of their 2021 awards. Each year they ask the public to vote on many of their favourite brands across a whole host of categories including food, lifestyle, people and more.
With the announcement of the award winners, we wanted to highlight a few category winners that we are big fans of too.
So here are a few vegan brands that are killing it in the Australian vegan space!
Best Vegan Ice Cream – Pana
Pana Barbounis founded Pana Organic in Melbourne, Australia with the intention of creating a rich, luxurious chocolate the whole world could enjoy.
Made from vegan, organic ingredients with no refined sugar, and produced using minimal heat. Chocolate that loves what’s within, as well as the earth it came from.
Best Plant-Based Milk – Bonsoy
Whether it’s saying goodbye to lactose, or simply your inner-health preference, Bonsoy is wholly made goodness. From soy and almond milk to sparkling coconut water, we’re the golden halo of health. So when you visit a café and see our boxes stacked high, or open a fridge to that welcome warm glow, you’ll experience a feeling of calm.
Best Plant-Based Burger – Beyond Meat
Best Vegan Wine – Goodwill Wines
Goodwill Wine is Australia’s only certified social enterprise donating 50% of its profits to the charity of each customer’s choice.
Best Vegan Skincare & Haircare – Sukin
Sukin is a 100% Vegan brand. Sukin is committed to providing skincare that doesn’t cost the earth. This isn’t merely a commitment to creating affordable products, but also with minimal cost to our precious environment.
Best in Vegan Dining – Smith & Daughters
Smith & Daughters is the embodiment of award winning chef Shannon Martinez’s commitment to bring the world f$%^king delicious food. Smith & Daughters combines her knack for creating dynamic vegan cuisine, with an unrelenting commitment to creating a fun, no-bullsh#t dining experience.

In 2021 / 2022 they will be opening a mega-sized new restaurant and space in Collingwood so be sure to watch this space if / when in Melbourne!
