Fray Bentos is among the companies honored by vegan charity PETA in its annual food awards.

The pastry giant has been awarded Best Vegan Pie for the Vegan Steak And Kidney Bean Pie it launched earlier this year.

Other winners included high street bakery Greggs, which scooped Launch of the Year for its vegan sausage roll, LEON picked up Best Vegan Burger for its Love Burger, and Caffè Nero was awarded Best Vegan Sandwich for its Sundried Tomato & Pesto Tostati.

More people choosing vegan

“Growing concerns about health, the environment, and animal suffering are driving more and more people to choose vegan options,” PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects, Dawn Carr, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“The forward-thinking businesses we’ve honored this year have all responded to the booming demand with delicious, plant-based foods that appeal to vegans and meat-eaters alike.”

PETA adds: “The United Nations states that animal agriculture is responsible for nearly a fifth of human-induced greenhouse-gas emissions – and advises that a global shift to vegan eating is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change.”
