Thanks to all who nominated their veggie hero for 2021, across the four categories.
We've had a sparkling array of care catering talent nominated this year for special recognition and we know already that competition will be tough across the board.
We'll be joined by a proud audience of wonderful nominees and their organisations, as well as a whole host of celebrities to 'present' the awards virtually.
Check back soon for more details of the ceremony, including a full list of nominees.
First launched in 2016, the Annual Awards highlight the importance of catering well for older vegetarians and vegans. We recently surveyed 1,000 care homes to find out how many residents are vegan or vegetarian. Since the survey was last commissioned in 2014, the number of vegans in residential care has increased by a whopping 167%!
With growing numbers of vegetarians being supported by the care sector, it is no surprise that news of the awards has been positively received by care organisations. Articles about the awards have been published by the NACC, Public Sector Catering, Care Home Catering, Hospitality Assured and many more.
It’s becoming impossible to ignore the demand for top-notch veggie care catering.
This year marks the fifth VfL Awards for Excellence in Veg*n Care Catering. With more vegans and vegetarians moving into residential care every year, this annual award recognises those who are pioneering the way in modern care catering.
