At HQ, we spend our days promoting and championing those Brands & Individuals that have sustainability at their core. We are proud to see so many new brands emerging every day and thrilled to see so many of our household brands rolling out plant-based alternatives to our favorite foods.

The V Awards 2021 is about celebrating brands making a name for themselves by providing a growing market with vegan, vegetarian and plant-based products, at a local, national and international level.
