Two million votes, 59 winners, and six incredible prizes—this year’s annual poll of the best plant-based products, people, and places really took the cake (or shall we say the CBD truffle-topped vegan doughnut). From food trucks and fashion labels to taquerias and TikTokers—you sounded off and rallied behind your favorites, and now the votes are in! So who did you vote as the best of the best? We present to you: the 2021 VegNews Veggie Awards.
