Well we are overwhelmed. The Scottish Green Awards judges not only chose Vegware as winners of ‘Best Green Service Provider’, but we also scooped the top prize, with the fantastic title ‘ Outstanding Contribution to the Scottish Environment’.
The judging panel chose Vegware for the Outstanding Contribution award – presented to a company, organisation or individual which has made a key contribution to improving the environment in Scotland – saying Vegware had “gone the extra mile” has “very exciting prospects for international growth” and was overall as “brilliant idea”.
Vegware was described by the judging panel as: “An innovative company whose sole aim is to provide environmentally friendly alternatives to one of the environment’s threats – plastic containers”.
We were recognised for the role we are playing in helping Scottish businesses understand and comply with the new waste Regs which kick in on 1st January 2014. We have been doing our own research and are bringing together policy-makers and food business owners in our Roundtable at the end of October.
