Bristol VegfestUK 2012 extends a huge welcome and thanks to our Show Sponsors, Redwood Wholefoods.
Redwood Wholefoods are one of the best known producers of vegan products in the UK today, with a string of succesful and innovative meat and dairy free creations that are a firm favourite in many 21st century households.
One of their most incredible products is the 'Super Melting Cheezly Mozzarella' which looks and feels just like the real thing and actually melts just like real cheese, which means it can be used as a superb ingredient in its own right in a multitude of dishes such as pizza, lasagne and cheeseburgers. With their almost unparalleled range of sausages and burgers there's never a dull moment in a vegan kitchen with Redwoods to hand - particularly when it comes to festive occassions with whole vegan roasts available. And thats not all, as well as over 40 'meat and cheese' products, the company have now ventured into the specialist oils market (including flax, hemp, omega seed, and coconut oils), & have their own range of dairy free desserts available too, as well as fudge and chocolate and a host of other products.
Redwood will be at Bristol 2012 for three days in full effect with a stall in the Main Marquee and a catering operation outside for those who want to indulge in eating out big time with some of their best selling products available. They will also be serving free tasters from a variety of other products from their range, and you can of course buy many of their products on the day too.
Big thanks to Redwood for their support of VegfestUK Bristol 2012 - they sponsored our first show back in 2003 and have been big favourites ever since.

Fabulous new foods!
Throughout the event, Redwood will be giving away free tasters of its fabulous new foods, including its fantastic fish-free ‘fish’ cakes and ‘fish’ steaks, both made from 100% natural plant-based ingredients.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation, by the year 2030 an additional 37 million tonnes of fish each year will be needed to maintain current levels of fish consumption and to cope with an increased world population of 2 billion more people.
With the number of fish left in the ocean declining rapidly, Redwood’s amazing new Making Waves Gourmet Fish Style Cakes and Fish Style Steaks offer a more ethical, sustainable and cruelty-free alternative.
Like Redwood’s ever popular Fishless Fingers, these mouth-watering new fish alternatives are made from succulent ‘fish’ flakes with a crispy breadcrumb coating and have all the taste of the ocean yet none of the fish.
At Vegfest, you’ll also be able to try Redwood’s fabulous new gourmet vegan pizzas, believed to be the first range of vegan pizzas to go on sale in the UK.
Featuring Redwood’s dairy free Super Melting ‘Mozzarella’, these come in three delicious varieties including a Meatless Feast made with Redwood’s amazingly realistic Cheatin’ meats, Cheezly & Tomato and Ham Style with Pineapple.
Also ‘on show’ will be Redwood’s new meat-free and more-ish Sausage Rolls, made with the company’s award-winning Lincolnshire style sausages, traditional style vegetarian pasties and a wonderful flavour-enhancing vegan ‘Parmesan’. With its delicious piquant taste, Redwood’s new dairy-free Parmesan-style cheese is the perfect ingredient for adding extra flavour to salads, minestrone and pasta dishes.
Last but not least, Redwood will be giving away tasters of its new Strawberry pud, the latest addition to its growing range of delicious “Wot No Dairy” yoghurt style desserts. Produced from highly nutritious pea protein so free from dairy, soya and allergens, Wot No Dairy desserts also come in raspberry, peach & apricot, plain and black cherry varieties. Made from natural ingredients and sweetened with fruit juice, Wot No Dairy desserts are higher in protein than many dairy-free ’yoghurts’ produced from oat or rice.
Everything in the Redwood range is 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 www.redwoodfoods.co.uk.
Tim from VegfestUK says
Redwood were our first sponsors back in 2003 so it is fitting that they are back in full effect to become our first ever Show Sponsors for VegfestUK Bristol 2012 as we go into our tenth year. Redwood have always been at the helm of innovative vegan food in the UK, but just recently they have surpassed even themselves with the addition of the UK's first ever vegan pizzas - sure to be an absolutely massive hit and bringing the wonders of plant based food to an even wider audience. I remember how excited everyone was when Melting Cheezly - the UK's first vegan melting cheese - appeared back in 2004 and these pizzas are creating the same sort of stir. Add to this a whole host of other new products - including desserts, ready meals, specialist oils, confectionary, sausage rolls and pasties and you can be sure Redwood will be leading the way for some years to come at the forefront of the plant based revolution. And - all credit to the owner and management here - definitely a company that puts its money where its mouth is. Respect.
