Veggie Awards 2022

Shining a light on the  cruelty-free  and  eco brands  of tomorrow

THE 2022 VEGGIE AWARDS ARE HERE...

Here is your chance to become a standout product in the plant-based and ethical industry that consumers will trust

HAVE YOUR PRODUCTS JUDGED

The Veggie Awards provide the perfect opportunity to have your product tried, tested, and then judged by some of the best-loved celebrities and influencers in the plant-based and ethical industry. There is also the opportunity to have thorough feedback from the team/judges. Entries are now open and close on 15th August 2022, and cost £100.

HOW THE AWARDS WORK

Stage One

Simply enter your products by midnight on 15th August in any of our extensive range of categories and then send them to us for initial testing. The knowledgeable Veggie Awards team will judge products based on the criteria set for each category, and will create a shortlist of the top 15 products in each category

Stage Two

Shortlisted products will then need to be sent to our celebrity judges in September 2022, who will rate the products according to the criteria set for each category. They will then select their winners and highly commended products.

Stage Three

The winners and highly commended runners-up will be announced here and across our social media platforms in November.
