Catering

Many consider Veggies to be one of the most ethical caterers on the circuit, with over 25 years of experience in pure vegetarian / fair trade / organic catering.

As well as catering at outdoor events, we also provide buffets for meetings and family celebrations, and full meals for camps, gatherings and conferences.

veggies trailerThe popularity of our service is indicated by our having been voted ‘Best Vegan Caterers‘ in three successive years. We have been shortlisted in the green trading standards scheme at Glastonbury Festivals.

All our products are made from natural ingredients, with no artificially added preservatives, flavourings or colourings. We aim to provide a balance between organically grown and/or locally produced ingredients.

Fair traded fruit juices and fresh vegetables are used, along with other wholefood ingredients. In 28 years we have never used any other than fair trade teas and coffees.

Our ethical trading survey indicates our minimal packaging policies to be particularly well supported by our customers. We generally use no disposable plates, mugs or cutlery, and take back for recycling all bought-in product packaging, including bottles, cans and tetra paks.

As Veggies foods are always vegan, our menu is suitable for vegetarian diets, as well as most cultural and religious preferences.

Vegan AwardsVeggies was again voted Best Vegan Caterer in the Vegan Society Awards 2008 – For THIRD Successive Year!, after which we have declined further nomination.

Despite standing down from this award, we were voted Best Vegan Caterer in yet another award scheme, the UK Vegan Awards at West Midlands Vegan Festival in 2010!
