Vegware recognised on environmental leadership including Rising Star award for our eco expert Eilidh!

It’s been another great week for us at awards ceremonies; Vegware won Best Sustainability Initiative Award and Eilidh Brunton, our group recycling consultant, was awarded Rising Star at the FPA Awards.

Our Close the Loop collection service won the Best Sustainability Initiative Award at this year’s Hotelympia FoodBev Awards.The annual awards, organised by FoodBev Media and held in association with Hotelympia, celebrate all that is good about innovation in the global food industry.

Our award-winning service collects clients’ used Vegware and food waste for commercial composting, creating high-grade compost in a matter of weeks. After the success of Close the Loop in Scotland, we’ll be launching the service in regions of England in 2018.

Following this, our very own Group Recycling Consultant Eilidh Brunton collected the Rising Star award at the FPA awards. Awarded for her integral environmental work with Vegware and continued engagement with the waste sector, Eilidh picked up the award at the Grand Hotel Brighton. Well done Eilidh!

These awards follow last week’s success where we were ranked in both The Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100and the 2018 Inc. 5000 Europe lists.

Vegware brings home two award wins for Britain!

With the recent Olympic, and now Paralympic, Games creating excitement in the air, Vegware is delighted to share we’ve scooped two new awards for Britain as well!

The Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 has ranked Vegware as No 77 in its 2018 league table, which recognises Britain’s 100 small and medium-sized (SME) companies with the fastest-growing international sales over the latest two years. In 2017, Vegware opened its new American office in California, while maintaining operational bases in the UK, Australia, and Hong Kong, with distribution throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Caribbean.

Additionally, Vegware has earned position number 3646 in the 2018 Inc. 5000 Europe, Inc.’s listing of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the European continent.

We are honoured to earn these achievements and be recognised in the industry, both back at home in Britain and internationally, for our in-demand fully-compostable products made from plants, not plastic.

We’ve been shortlisted for an Edinburgh Chamber Business Award!

We were delighted to hear that Vegware has been named as one of the finalists at this year’s Edinburgh Chamber Business Awards.

The awards recognise some of the great work that businesses in Edinburgh have achieved in the last year. We’re up for the Responsible Business Award for our Close the Loop collection service, a waste collection service offering Vegware packaging and food waste collection to customers across Scotland’s Central Belt.

Last year, we won Supplier of the Year at the Food Made Good Awards for our Close the Loop solution. Close the Loop also received a Parliamentary Motion in the Scottish Parliament in the same month.

The awards are taking place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Thursday 8th of February. Wish us luck!
