Vegan Innovation Award to be conferred at veganfach 2017 in Cologne

With the "vegan innovation award“, the German Vegan Society regularly honours products suited to promoting the vegan lifestyle. In addition to this, new products are honoured that also convince non-vegans. After 2016, this prize will now be awarded for the second time in the context of veganfach in Cologne. All exhibiting companies of veganfach 2017 can participate. The award ceremony takes place on 4 November 2017 at 4:00 p.m. on the veganfach stage. Applications are possible effective immediately under www.veganfach.com/award; deadline for application is 30 September 2017

A jury of experts for the vegan lifestyle will select the winners from all submissions. The "vegan innovation award" will be conferred in six categories: in the category "Food & Beverages: deliciously vegan", products will be honoured that simply taste good and convince everyone. Companies that don't manufacture food products have a chance to win a prize in the category "Non Food: Vegan Lifestyle". This category is for products that belong to a vegan life and lifestyle, for example, fashion and interior.

"Sustainably vegan" distinguishes innovations that are both vegan and sustainable. The category "Startup: young, innovative & vegan“ is oriented especially to young companies.Honoured here are products of young startups who create innovative ideas and products and enrich the vegan life in doing so. It is a special art to convince determined non-vegans with vegan products. Companies that know how to do so can apply for an award in the category "Vegan for non-vegans: Flexigan“. That vegan and athletic are not mutually exclusive is demonstrated last but not least in the category "Healthy, sporty & vegan". Products are distinguished here that promote athletic activities and a vegan way of life equally.
