VANCOUVER, BC, March 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Konscious Foods™, maker of the world’s first frozen plant-based sushi rolls, onigiri, and poke bowls, announced today that it is a winner in the VegNews Best of Show Awards. This honor from VegNews, the world’s #1 plant-based media brand, recognizes this year’s hottest new vegan products at the nation’s largest natural products trade show, Expo West. Held March 7–11 in Anaheim, CA, VegNews’ editorial team tested thousands of plant-based products and awarded just 12 brands top honors.
