  • Eat vegan!
    • Food: Good food plays an important role in life for all of us. Of course it has to taste good, but what really matters is the whole package! In this category every vegan food has the chance to qualify. Particular attention is paid to innovation, sustainability and taste. Criteria of appearance and packaging to consistency and smell are considered.
  • Live vegan!
    • Non-Food: Vegan living means more than only to pay attention to its nutrition. It's a lifestyle of its own! Here products are distinguished, which fit perfectly into a vegan life. These include fashion, fitness, interior and more. Here, benefits, marketability, practicability and appearance are evaluated, among other things. The focus is on innovation and sustainability.
  • Drink vegan!
    • Beverage: Of course, a good meal always includes a good drink! Vegan drinks for every taste are examined here. In this category, too, particular emphasis is placed on innovation, sustainability and taste. The criteria here also depend on appearance, packaging, consistency and smell.
