We are extremely grateful to the following organisations & companies for sponsoring Veggie Pride UK. Without their support, this event would not be taking place. If your ethical company/organisation would like to sponsor the event, please contact us as soon as possible.
The Vegan Society - They are our main sponsors. Founded in 1944, The Vegan Society provides advice on ways of living free of animal products for the benefit of people, animals and the planet. They have recently relocated their offices to Birmingham and we`re delighted they chose here! The Vegan Society will have a stall at the festival. See their website www.vegansociety.com
Animal Aid - Animal Aid is the UK's largest animal rights group and one of the longest established in the world, having been founded in 1977. They campaign peacefully against all forms of animal abuse and promote a cruelty-free lifestyle. They investigate and expose animal cruelty, and their undercover investigations and other evidence are often used by the media, bringing these issues to public attention. Animal Aid will have a stall at the festival. See their website www.animalaid.org.uk
Off The Hoof - A brand new quarterly vegan/veggie lifestyle magazine. Off The Hoof is an independent magazine with an irreverent, idiosyncratic style - a cross between The Big Issue, Private Eye and Nuts or Loaded magazine. It was launched on World Vegan Day 2008 at the West Midlands Vegan Festival. Editor Al Slurry from Yaoh hemp products said "Nuts would have been the perfect choice of name for our vegan title for a number of obvious reasons but someone got there before us. ‘Off the Hoof' was our second choice but we have grown to love it!". See their website www.offthehoof.co.uk
Yaoh - Yaoh is based in Bristol and is primarily a hemp company, with a range of vegan hemp bodycare and food products which use only the best organic/natural ingredients. They also organise the world's biggest vegan event, the Bristol Vegan Fayre, and publish `A Vegan Guide To Bristol` - a free 80 page guide to the vegan lifestyle in the South West. See their website www.yaoh.co.uk
Bute Island Foods - In 1988, Bute Island Foods started making their own scrummy vegan cheese, known as Sheese. Fast forward twenty years & there are now 9 flavours of hard dairy-free cheese, and 5 flavours of 100% non-dairy cream cheese, called Creamy Sheese. The four main members of the team have had an animal-free diet since birth, and all the people involved in production have done so for many years. See their website www.buteisland.com
Yoga in Daily Life - YIDL is a holistic system of health, encompassing the science of body, mind, consciousness and soul. While completely true to the authentic Indian traditions of classical yoga, it is adjusted to meet the needs of our times. The System aims to establish physical, mental, spiritual and social health, in other words to offer all that one requires in the search for peace of mind, harmony and fulfillment in life. YIDL will have a stall at the festival and will perform a demonstration which you will be welcome to join in with. See their website www.yogaindailylife.org.uk
