Vegware chosen as national champion for the UK in European Business Awards

Eco packaging supplier Vegware has been selected as national champion for the European Business Awards Programme 2013-14.

Commended for producing zero-waste packaging, boosting sustainability in the catering and hospitality sector, and helping UK businesses divert food waste from landfill, Vegware will now compete for Ruban d'Honneur status.

Joe Frankel, founder and managing director of Vegware, said: "With 10 UK awards in 2013 already, it seems fitting that Vegware's innovative, zero-waste food packaging is now recognised at European level. We are a high-growth green business demonstrating that sustainable principles can drive the British economy.

"Being a national champion in the European Business Awards is further recognition that our compostable packaging is a cost-effective and practical route to reducing carbon, costs and waste."

Vegware's final challenge for the awards is a short video entry that will highlight how compostable packaging is the key to recycling all waste, and how the Edinburgh SME is helping the UK's largest caterers make tangible improvements in sustainability.
