VegfestUK Awards 2021: The results are in!

18th December 2021

The VegfestUK Awards 2021, held over the last 2-and-a-bit weeks, have been yet another fantastic period in which to celebrate together some of the best products, brands, activists, charities, organisations, projects & animal sanctuaries in the business.

 

 

But alas, all good things must come to an end. And as you may have seen by tuning into Global Vegfest 2 this evening, the results are in!

 

In case you missed the livestream, and would like to catch up, you can watch it in the Global Vegfest 2 Event Programme, right here:

 

 

To summarise the results, the following table charts the winners and runners-up for 2021. There can only be one overall winner in each category, but a heartfelt congratulations is extended from us here at VegfestUK to every nominee – and if you’re listed below, an extra congratulations for finishing so highly in this year’s competition!
