17 July 2017

small veggie awards 17



The results of the annual Veggie Awards have been announced, and the Vegetarian Society is proud to have scooped one... again!   

For the third consecutive year, the charity’s website ( has received the honour of being crowned the “Best Vegetarian Online Resource” in the awards run by Veggie Magazine. The BBC Good Food and the Vegan Society's websites were both highly-commended in this category. 

This year the Veggie Awards introduced a brand new category for the “Best Organisation/Charity”.  This category was won by the RSPCA, but the Vegetarian Society  shared the highly-commended position alongside PETA.

The winners of both of these awards were decided by votes from Veggie magazine's readers.  The Vegetarian Society sponsored the “Best Vegetarian Brand” award this year, which was won by Quorn. As last year’s winners of the “Lifetime Achievement” award, The Vegetarian Society also judged this category for 2017, which was awarded to the veggie pioneers, Cranks. 

Veggie's Editor, Holly Treacy, said: "I'm not surprised that our passionate readers have chosen the Vegetarian Society as their Best Online Resource; with great tips on health and nutrition, an array of free-from recipes and helpful tools to living more ethically, it ticks all the boxes!"
