At Aussie Pie Guy we are committed to supporting our community by using local ingredients that are also sustainable and ethical. We also try to keep our city clean by only offering compostable items at our truck. Here are just a few things we are doing to help:
We think local ingredients just taste better plus we think it's important as a Vancouver start up company to support other local companies so we can all build and grow together.
<- Chickens at Rehoboth Farm.
We currently purchase our beef from Empire Valley, they produce hormone free, open range, premium beef for our Shane's and Aussie Pies.
We purchase our eggs for our Brekkie Pie from Rehoboth Farm located in Chilliwack, BC. They provide us with SPCA certified fresh eggs.
The beer for our Aussie Pie gravy is made from Howe Sound Rail Ale, which is produced in their brewery in Squamish, BC.
The pork for our Porky and Brekkie Pie is from Gelderman Farms in Abbotsford, BC.
We also source many of our vegetables and fruit locally and organically.
BANNING BOTTLED WATER
Inspired by Bundanoon, Australia - the first city in the world to ban bottled water - we only offer fresh, Vancouver tap water on our truck. It's delicious, it's good for the enviornment and it's free! Read more about it here.
Everything we provide to our customers is compostable aside from recyclable drink cans. The sleeves that the pies are held in, cutlery, napkins, pie boxes and even water cups are 100% compostable.
If you have any questions about our sustainability goals or would like to know more information about where we source our ingredients, please don't hesitate to contact us!
