Vegan Food UK Awards 2017: Results & Winners

On December 7th, Vegan Food UK hosted its very first food awards with almost 9000 people voting on their favourite plant-based products in Britain.

The Vegan Food UK Awards is there to reward food companies in becoming more vegan friendly and give a chance for real public opinion. The voting took place over one week in December, where each day members of VFUK had 24 hours to vote on just one category at a time. To keep things fair, voters were also given the opportunity to nominate any products of their choice within the category, so no company or vegan food product was left out.
