The North American Vegetarian Society honors vegan cheese maker, cookbook author, and restaurateur with illustrious award.

The North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) recently inductedaward-winning vegan chef Miyoko Schinner into its Vegetarian Hall of Fame. Maribeth Abrams, who is on NAVSs Board of Directors, said the organization chose the entrepreneur, cookbook author, and TV show co-hostess because €œher food has changed so many peoples lives, and she is an inspiring example of someone who created a successful plant-based company while following her heart.€ Schinner is the first food manufacturer to be named a Vegetarian Hall of Famer. She said she was €œsurprised and delighted€ to receive the honor, especially because €œthere are so many incredible vegetarian advocates.€ She continued, €œMy way of promoting veganism and saving animals is through a food business, and its wonderful that NAVS recognized the value of this because its something that many people could also choose to do.€
