An Australian restaurant chain is using its famous “Peace Pie” menu to bring people together for peace.
The concept is part of a campaign to raise awareness about animal rights.
In Australia, some restaurant chains are taking steps to bring vegan meals to their dining rooms.
Here’s how the restaurant chain, called Peace Pizza, is using the phrase.
The chain started by selling its vegan versions of some popular Australian dishes such as macaroons and ice cream to its patrons.
The “Pizza” is a reference to the Australian flag, and the word “Peace” is also the name of the company’s restaurant.
Its aim is to make a point about the “pain” people endure at the hands of animals.
“It’s about being able to share that pain,” co-founder and chief executive officer, Paul White, told Business Insider.
“It’s a bit like the song ‘Peace Pie’ which is a little bit about that and a little about the power of love and sharing.”
The concept of the pizza is simple: A slice of the “Piece” is made with a vegan-friendly sauce and a vegan cheese.
The restaurant chain has also used the phrase “Pillar of Peace” to promote its menu, with patrons ordering the pie from the counter and placing it in a bowl.
“The ‘Peace’ part of that comes from the fact that we don’t use any meat,” White explained.
“We don’t kill animals.
We are not animals.
It’s a celebration of the love of life.”
The restaurant has also added a “Vegemite” burger, which White described as “the ultimate meal”.
“We have a Vegemite burger that is a vegan version of the classic Vegemites and they are so good.
It just melts in your mouth,” he said.
White said that he wanted the pizza to be something people can eat on its own, without any special ingredients.
“When we get our ‘Pizza’ pie in the mail, we will cook it and serve it up in a vegan atmosphere,” he explained.
The pizza is being made with 100% natural ingredients, including non-GMO ingredients.
White said that while the pizza will be made from vegan ingredients, it won’t be “meat-free”.
“We’re still going to have meat in it, but the meat is 100% vegan and not GMO,” he told Business Insiders.
“We’ve taken it a step further by including our vegan ingredients in the sauce.”
In a post on the company website, the chain said it was “the first Australian restaurant to introduce vegan and vegetarian meals at all levels of our restaurants”.
White told BusinessInsider that it’s not the first time the chain has used its “Pizzagate” theme to raise some awareness.
In 2013, the restaurant also created a “Happy Pie” for its patrons to eat, which featured the words “Happy Together” and “Peace.”
The chain is one of many businesses to adopt a vegan ethos.
In October, Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts both changed their menus to reflect this.
