The best vegan brands as voted for the Vegfest Awards 2018

VegfestUK played host to its own vegan Awards Ceremony on Saturday, October 27th 2018 at VegfestUK London, with 18 awards trophies up for grabs after 6 weeks of voting online by the public which gathered altogether 7,086 votes in total.

The Awards, which celebrated its 12th year since its inception in 2007, promote the best vegan brands and groups in the UK market. In 2018 the Awards boasted altogether 18 categories with 10 nominees each and the nominee who gathered the most votes after the 6-week voting period was chosen to be the winner in their category.

The Awards Ceremony was hosted by VegfestUK PR manager and VeggieVision founder Karin Ridgers, with the awards trophies handed out to winners by presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford.
