007 Awards

The winners were presented with their awards before xmas – see here for the results of the 007 Vegan Environmental Awards.

Everyone at Infinity is very pleased with the award, especially as it was a vote by the public - Eliz, Infinity Foods, winners of the '7 Best Independent Health Stores'

We were very flattered to be presented with the award for 'Best Vegan Company' in the 007 Vegan Environmental Awards. A big, big thank you to everyone who voted for us. - Caroline – Redwood Foods

Thank you very much to all those who voted for Booja Booja as their favorite vegan product for 2007. Our chocolates have won a shelf full of awards over the years for all kinds of reasons but this one is one of the ones that means the most to me because it is voted for by vegans - the people I have in mind when we develop our products - people who have had enough of the appalling abuse of non-humans which is mostly taken for granted in our culture and of the abuse on their own bodies of the 'normal' diet. So thank you, thank you. When I can feel that what we are doing is being fully received I am inspired to persevere and do more, do more to support peoples vegan choices by creating extraordinarily delicious and benign vegan delicacies that happily recognize the human reality of a desire for occasional treats. So... lots more lovely goodies are on the way in 2008...
And thank you to Tim at Yaoh for organizing these awards and the Bristol Vegan Fayre. A massive service.
- Colin Mace, The Booja Booja Company
