    My raspberry award went to Happidog... And a big FAT raspberry it was too!! Their dog food nuggets used to be vegan but now contain animal products. WHY?????? My dog loved those nuggets and now i've had to change his whole diet. Does anyone know of any other dried vegan dog food available? I'm having to cook him rice, pasta and veg every day at the moment...
    My turn of mind is so given to taking things in the absurd point of view that it breaks out in spite of me every now and then.

    'Vegan vote for Bristol firms
    Bristol companies have won two out of 10 annual Vegan Society awards for 2005.'

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/bristol/content..._feature.shtml

    Yaoh got an award, as did Realfood and Plamil. Guinness got the raspberry.
    I heard that Redwoods may have got one too. I think the full list will probably be posted soon.

    The Vegan Society Awards 2005

    Fairtrade chocolate, fishless fishcakes and organic ale were among the winners of The Vegan Society’s annual awards for people and companies making a difference to people, animals and the environment, while Guinness came in for criticism for using fish gelatine in their stout-making.

    And the winners are…

    Vegan Society members nominated Jungle Passion Chocolate Nibs, fruity chocolate direct from the Amazon, as the best fairly traded vegan product, while high street cosmetic chain Lush took home the award for best cruelty-free non-food product for their Veganese hair conditioner.

    The best animal-free drink accolade went to Samuel Smiths for their Organic Best Ale and Yaoh's hemp milk maker won the gong for the best environmentally friendly vegan product. The best food product award was won by Redwood Wholefood Company’s tasty Thai Fish Style Cakes.

    In the retail and catering stakes, Glasgow’s 100% vegan restaurant, Mono, was awarded the best vegan catering award and Bristol-based Wild Oats Natural Foods was voted best retailer for animal-free shopping.

    The Vegan Achievement Award was given as a posthumous tribute to Arthur Ling, long time vegan campaigner and founder of Plamil Foods who died earlier this year, and campaign group Realfoods won the award for best project or campaign for VeganBuddies.org.uk – a web-based mentoring scheme for new vegans.

    There’s something fishy about this guinness!

    The inaugural Vegan Raspberry Award - for products that could and should be vegan but aren’t - went to Guinness for their fishy production techniques. Isinglass, a type of gelatine made from the swim bladders of fish, is used to remove the yeast from the stout. Vegan-friendly companies, such as Samuel Smiths and Pitfield Brewery, have shown that fish-free vegan stout is not only possible to make but tastes delicious. Hopefully the award will encourage Guinness to change their ways and prove that good things really do come to those who wait.
