There is a new company, Local Dehy, based in Lake Hawea, which makes vegetarian and vegan dehydrated tramping meals.

The meals are a big single serve. Compared with other brands, they are one-and-a-half times the size of an ordinary “single serve” (135g as opposed to 90g) providing a substantial, filling meal. All meals  are made in small batches from fresh ingredients, so the end product tastes like a home-cooked meal.

Currently they have three flavours (with more in development):

Kumara Chickpea Curry--vegan and gluten free

Chilli Beans--vegan and gluten free

Spaghetti Bolognese--vegetarian

The cost is $15 per meal with delivery currently free
