Europe's largest vegan event VegfestUK announces 2011 award winners

VegfestUK, the event that drew crowds of over 13,000 people May 27-29 in Bristol, not only enabled visitors to investigate all things plant-based but also afforded compassionate consumers the opportunity to vote for their favorite vegan products, services, outlets and even achievement.

After tabulating thousands of votes, the winners of this year’s 2011 VegfestUK Awards have been announced.

Prepare to get hungry.

Fry’s Chicken Burger took home the top spot in the Best Vegan Meat Product category with 35% of the vote while Swedish Glace Ice Cream (21%) won the Best Vegan Dairy Product and Moo Free Chocolate Pralines (23%) finished first amongst competitors in the Best Vegan Cakes and Sweets group.

Loving Hut Express (16%) edged out CafĂ©’ Kino (13%) for the Best Vegan Friendly Places to Eat category and Provamel Soya Milk was voted the Best Vegan Milk Product.

Congratulations go out to all of the winners!
