Our Story

Where it all began...

Hey friends! My name is Stephanie and I'm the creator and director of Veganut. As a qualified nutritionist, in 2017 I decided it was time to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle that would benefit my own health, as well as the environment. This meant leaving behind my beloved whey protein (the digestive issues, not so much) and switching to plant-based protein. I tried brand after brand, but couldn't find one that I truly loved, whether it was the flavour, the ingredients, or even just the packaging. All I wanted was a plant-based protein powder that tasted good, without any of the unnecessary ingredients. Nothing more, nothing less (little did I know that I'd want to share it with all of you too!).

Our mission...

So I set out on a mission. I wanted to create a plant-based protein powder that was free from nasty ingredients and tasted like something you'd enjoy every day. With the help of experienced food technologists, I created the perfect recipe, and that's when Veganut officially began. 100% vegan, natural, gluten free, soy free, and GMO free. Minimal ingredients, maximum taste. But there was still one problem. As we entered an industry littered with plastic packaging (literally), our initial packaging design was made completely from...plastic. Committed to protecting animals on one end, yet destroying the planet on the other? Commence mission number two. With the environment and sustainability in mind, I went on to design the packaging for Veganut completely from scratch, and that's why the pouches you see now are completely biodegradable! And no more plastic scoops. It's so easy to measure with your own scoop at home! 

We also take part in the DHL Go Green Solutions initiative, an environmental protection program with a global target of zero emissions by 2050. You can find out more about the DHL Go Green initiative here

Our products...

The current Veganut family includes three different flavours of plant-based protein powder: vanilla, chocolate, and salted caramel. Each are a blend of premium quality pea and brown rice protein, with all of the ingredients sustainably sourced and minimally processed (check out our ingredients page to find out what they are). They're simple, they're natural, and they're delicious.

The future...

Proudly owned and operated in Auckland, New Zealand, we are determined to provide plant-based products that are good for you, good for the earth, and taste delicious. We want to make sure that choosing vegan no longer feels like missing out. And let us tell you...protein powder is just the beginning!

 

Lots of love,
Creator, founder, and plant lover,
Stephanie
