Heritage Auckland Hectors restaurant has been announced the very first New Zealand restaurant to achieve Vegan Certification by a new scheme created by the New Zealand Vegetarian Society.
The New Zealand Vegetarian Society is running the Vegan Certification programme in collaboration with the Vegan Society of Aotearoa New Zealand. The certification is the only one of its kind in New Zealand.
For Heritage Auckland, the certification involved a stringent and independent audit of every ingredient in the hotel’s Hectors restaurant plant-based menu range.
They began offering plant-based menu items in both its lobby cafe and Hectors restaurant in 2011. The hotel then went on to be the first New Zealand restaurant to be Vegetarian Accredited by the NZ Vegetarian Society in early 2013. A constant innovative dining leader, Heritage Auckland followed up with a plant-based raw breakfast bar in Hectors restaurant to great success.
