MS Dhoni–Backed Shaka Harry and John Abraham–Funded NOTO Among Winners of 2023 PETA India Vegan Food Awards

Posted on by Erika Goyal

During World Vegan Month (November), and after more than 47% of Indian respondents to a survey said they consumed plant-based food out of concern for animals, PETA India is naming the winners of this year’s PETA India Vegan Food Awards. Shaka Harry, backed by cricketer MS Dhoni, nabbed Best Vegan Meat for its delicious Just Like Mutton Bhuna Curry, and NOTO, with investors including actor John Abraham, won Best Vegan Ice Cream for its tasty Mango & Raspberry frozen dessert.

The other winners are listed below.

In today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries, billions of animals are raised in vast warehouses in severe confinement. As PETA India reveals in the video exposé “Glass Walls”, chickens killed for food are often shackled upside down before their throats are slit. Cows and buffaloes are crammed into vehicles in such large numbers that their bones often break before they’re dragged off to the slaughterhouse, and pigs are stabbed in the heart as they scream. On the decks of fishing boats, fish suffocate or are cut open while they’re still alive.

PETA India offers a free vegan starter kit to help everyone embrace vegan eating, which can slash the risk of suffering from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity and helps fight the climate catastrophe by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
