Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Laguna Beach) has named Huntington Beach-based Vegware as her district’s Small Business of the Year, according to a news release.

Vegware manufactures plant-based compostable food service packaging — such as drink cups, takeout boxes and containers — out of renewable, recycled or lower-carbon materials.

Petrie-Norris will give the business its award Friday at 3 p.m. at the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center of Orange County, 21900 Pacific Coast Hwy. in Huntington Beach.

Petrie-Norris represents the 74th Assembly District, which covers Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach, part of Huntington Beach and most of Irvine.
