Ethical Food Firm Redwood Sponsors Europe's Biggest Veggie Event

Award-winning ethical food firm The Redwood Wholefood Company is sponsoring VegfestUK Bristol, Europe’s biggest veggie event. This outdoor eco-friendly festival with admission FREE to the public takes place from 25th-27th May and is expected to attract crowds of up to 15,000 people.

Redwood, the main sponsor of the festival, will be giving away thousands of free tasters of its veggie and vegan foods throughout the event, as well as selling its range at discounted prices. There will also be a Redwood pop-up takeaway, with delicious gourmet meat-free hotdogs, burgers, Cornish-style pasties, sausage rolls and much more on sale.

New lines making an appearance in the South-West for the first time include Redwood’s fabulous new gourmet fish-free ‘fish’ cakes and ‘fish’ steaks, delicious new vegan pizzas, tasty parmesan-style dairy-free ‘cheese’, delectable strawberry ‘Wot No Dairy’ desserts and mini ‘pork’ style sausages.

As well as cookery demos and ‘Ready, Steady, Cook’ style competitions with local chefs, VegfestUK Bristol will also feature The Great Veggie Sausage and Burger competitions and kids cookery classes.

There will be a comedy hour each day, crazy golf and an acoustic stage with headline acts from Finley Quaye, Neville Staple of The Specials and Johnny Clarke.

“This is a perfect opportunity for everyone to come along, have a great day out and find out how delicious veggie and vegan food can be,” said Lee Rockingham of Redwood.

All Redwood foods are made from natural plant-based ingredients so free from animal products and derivatives as well as cholesterol, artificial colours/preservatives, lactose, hydrogenated fats and GMOs.

This makes them suitable not just for vegetarians and vegans, but also for people suffering from lactose or casein intolerance and anyone looking for a healthier and more ethical lifestyle. Redwood products are also kosher certified and the company itself is halal process certified.

According to The Ethical Company Organisation and The Good Shopping Guide, Redwood is the UK’s most ethical vegetarian foods firm. Find out more at For details of VegFestUK Bristol, which takes place at the Amphitheatre and Waterfront Square, Harbourside, Bristol, visit
