Vegan Items at World Curry Festival, City Walk – Friday to Sunday, 7-9 July 2017

Message from Vegan ACT about Govinda’s ‘Vegan’ custard


Vegan ACT has been informed that the custard from the Govindas stall at the world curry festival is in fact NOT vegan. We contacted them directly before the festival with confirmation that everything would be vegan, however a customer questioned the custard and after just being told again that everything is vegan they were then informed the custard is not.

Vegan ACT would like to apologise profusely to anyone that may have purchased the custard, and we are very disappointed that the staff at Govindas have been so ill informed about this and have lied to our organisation and members of the public.

Again, we are so sorry if this effected anyone over the weekend.

Original Post by Vegan ACT

The World Curry Festival​ is next Friday and to make things a little easier for everyone Vegan ACT​ has contacted stall holders and created this list of vegan friendly options!

We are still waiting to hear back from some stalls, and if you know of a stall that we haven’t yet listed please contact us and we can add them to the flyer!
