The organisers of some of Europe’s biggest vegan festivals VegfestUK are delighted to be bringing back the prestigious and well-established vegan awards in 2017, a decade after the awards’ first inception back in 2007 to celebrate the crème de la crème of all things vegan.
Befitting the spirit of the awards in bringing to the fore the best of the best in the vegan community, this year’s awards span altogether 17 categories with 10 quality nominees each. The categories involved have never been as diverse and they include:
Best Vegan Snacks
Best Vegan Fast Food
Best Vegan “Meat”
Best Vegan “Cheese”
Best Vegan Cakes
Best Vegan Chocolate
Best Chilled / Frozen Vegan Desserts
Best Vegan Drinks
Best Vegan Caterer
Best Vegan Restaurant
Best Vegan Clothing
Best Vegan Footwear
Best Vegan Homeware and Lifestyle Products
Best Vegan Bodycare
Best Vegan Vlogger
Best Vegan Magazine
Best Vegan Online Resource
The organisers added, “We would never have predicted this amount of vegan options to be available from all those years ago. The sheer amount and diversity of our categories and our nominees demonstrate the tremendous growth of the vegan market driven by an unquenchable thirst for all things vegan at the moment. Some of our nominees have been with us for a long time, whilst others are up-and-coming and can’t wait to get a giant share of the vegan pie. All in all, we are thrilled to witness an amazing collection of vegan products, groups, and individuals, making vegan living as fun, attractive, dynamic, vibrant, and accessible as it is today – being vegan would be much more difficult nowadays without all the heroes and heroines involved in either making vegan products, or providing educational information on veganism via websites, magazine or vlogs. Every bit of your work counts – let’s keep up the good work and drive veganism further forward in the UK and beyond.”
