As reported back in January, Bute Island Foods was nominated as Brand of the Year in the inaugural Vegetarian and Vegan (V2) Awards 2020.  The awards, although primarily aimed at the vegetarian and vegan catering industry, included this category specifically for suppliers of vegan foods, and we are delighted to announce that we have been received a Highly Commended award.

The black-tie event took place on Monday February 24, at The Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel.  Top restaurants, takeaways, bistros and suppliers from across the UK gathered to celebrate those who shone brightly in 2019.  These Awards recognised the real masters across various categories and those who provide colourful and tasty salads, smoothies or even vegan burgers and curries, using natural ingredients and staying loyal to the ethical values of  vegetarianism.  The event heartily celebrated the vegetarian and vegan friendly establishments, where there is always something delicious for the whole family to enjoy as their inventive menus include everything, creating a vegetarian oasis in the cities of the UK.

The commendation is very gratifying for the company, as over recent years we have been working closely with an increasing number of partners in the catering and restaurant industries, such as pizza giant Papa Johns.  And, of course, many of our products are available in catering-sized packs – just get in touch with us using the online form for further details.

The future is looking good for Bute Island Foods, with positive measures being undertaken to increase our productivity, open new markets around the world and bring our Sheese to as many people as possible.  And despite this growth, the company retains its family feel, being a major employer on the small and beautiful Scottish Isle of Bute.  We truly are unique in the vegan food supplier industry, and with this recognition from the V2 Awards, we look forward to a bright future!
