National Vegetarian Week 2016 is from Monday 16 to Sunday 22 May.  

Now in its twenty-fourth year this celebration of all things veggie is a great time to talk about food, traditions and those special dishes. Food has a special place on everyone’s table and can evoke great memories of places, people and events. National Vegetarian Week (NVW) 2016 is the ideal seven days to share your meat-free recipes, promote veggie products, showcase menus and launch new ranges.


The week is also perfect for veggie events large and small, from pop-up themed veggie dining and street food experiences to large scale foodie festivals.

Whether you’re a business, educational establishment, community group or individual, there are lots of ways to join in and use NVW to your advantage. If your business or organisation is interested in the many benefits that come with being a sponsor or official partner for NVW, contact Benjamin Orlowski-Hatton on or 0161 925 2000.

The Vegetarian Society is a charity that aims to influence, inspire and support people to embrace and maintain a vegetarian lifestyle. Being a vegetarian is a choice that is kinder to animals, to people and to our living planet. Established in 1847 we are the oldest vegetarian organisation in the world.
