Veggie Awards 2015 Winners Listed

Veggie award 2015

Greeting everyone,

The 2015 Veggie Awards winners are out. VegNews Magazine takes a reader’s poll to determine the “best of” in the Vegan world.

Now, I will be the first to say that I don’t agree with some of the winners and did not vote for them but many that I did vote for won. I do enjoy seeing what most people think are the winners and a lot of times I see new products and businesses I did not know about. Also as you know there can only be one “winner” so that’s not to say that there are not other great products that were highly liked but were voted just slightly lower. So here they are for 2015.
