Byron, Co-op, Domino’s Win Big at PETA’s 10th Vegan Food Awards

London – This year marks the 10th anniversary of PETA’s Vegan Food Awards – an annual celebration of delicious new animal-free offerings – and 2022’s roundup is sure to win over the one-third of Brits who now report an interest in going vegan.

The winners include the following:

  • Best Vegan Milk: Co-op’s GRO The Oaty One is a creamy, barista-approved oat milk that froths perfectly for coffee.
  • Best Vegan Burger: With locations across the UK, Byron offers a vegan option for every one of its burgers, but it’s the massive Vegan Double Bacon Cheese that’s winning kudos from PETA this year.
  • Best Vegan Pizza: The name says it all! Smoky “salami” slices from the Vegetarian Butcher cover Domino’s Vegan PepperoNAY pizza, and diners will love giving their crusts a good dunk in Domino’s dairy-free garlic and herb dip.
  • Best Vegan Fish Dish: Just launched in more than 500 Greene King pubs across the UK, OmniFoods’ Vegan Fish & Chips is an ocean-friendly take on the British classic.

Bake Off: The Professionals winner Thibault Courtoisier’s Pâtisserie Verte won Best Luxury Product for its colourful vegan macarons – all of which deserve the Paul Hollywood handshake. Wasabi won Best Vegan Sushi for its dazzling Vegan Xalmon Harmony Set featuring vegan salmon nigiri, inari, red-pepper hosomaki, and more. And after supplying this year’s Wimbledon with vegan scones, tea, and “not clotted cream”, Positive Bakes won in the Afternoon Tea category.

“Supermarkets and restaurants are meeting the growing demand for exciting animal- and planet-friendly fare, with everything from OGGS’ fluffy vegan eggs to La Vie’s crispy vegan bacon, proving just how much the market has grown since the Vegan Food Awards kicked off a decade ago,” says PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “PETA’s 2022 winners are more diverse and delicious than ever, but every time someone chooses a vegan meal, the real winners are the animals.”

In today’s meat, egg, dairy, and fishing industries, cows are forcibly separated from their beloved calves, chickens’ throats are cut while they’re still conscious, piglets’ tails may be docked without painkillers, and fish are cut open while they’re still alive. PETA notes that vegan foods have a smaller carbon footprint, as the meat industry is a leading producer of the greenhouse gases that contribute to the climate catastrophe. Eating vegan also lowers a person’s risk of developing heart disease and cancer.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. High-resolution images of the winners are available here. For more information, please visit or follow the group on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
