At the Vegan Planet Fair, the biggest vegan fair in Austria, Vegan Awards in the categories of Food, Beverages, Wine and Non-Food (cosmetics, textiles, etc.) were presented once again this year. These awards have been presented by the Vegan Society of Austria since 2017. This year’s plant-based fair took place in Vienna from December 1st-2nd.
Products were evaluated not just according to the criteria of innovation and attractiveness (taste and appearance), but also according to aspects such as health and sustainability (ingredients and packaging). The seven members of the jury included nutritionist Katharina Petter, geophysicist and food scientist Dr. Kurt Schmidinger (futurefood.org), and blogger Edda Pascher (thebirdsnewnest.com) who is also head of an advertising agency. The wine category was again evaluated by a separate expert jury.
An overview and some information about this year’s winners can be found on the fair’s website at www.vegan-planet.at.
