When you think of a quality sausage the scope can be pretty wide.
At one end of the scale there's the organic butcher, who's filled his snags with free-range pork and exotic herbs.
At the other end there's the highly processed pre-cooked numbers that only contain a small amount of mystery meat.
All that may be about to change though, as a new competition in New Zealand dedicated to vegan sausages emerges.
The two-person judging panel is led by MasterChef winner and vegan convert Aaron Brunet.
