Hailsham catering company VegOut is celebrating after being named Best Caterer in VegFest UK’s 10th anniversary awards.

Diane Page and Pat Wilder were presented with the award by chef, author and culinary educator Chad Sarno at Europe’s largest vegetarian event held at London’s Olympia. VegOut beat nine other companies from throughout the UK to scoop the Best Caterer award.

Diane and Pat, both committed vegetarians for many years, formed VegOut to fill a gap in the local catering market. Diane, who lives in Hailsham, said, “We’re absolutely delighted to win the award and would like to say thank you to all who voted for us. Since we formed VegOut, vegetarian and vegan food has become increasingly popular and people now realise there is a lot more to it than nut cutlets.”
