In 1944 The Vegan Society created the word 'vegan' - the Trademark is the authentic international vegan standard.

Today, products must pass the following criteria to be eligible for registration.

A dedicated and experienced team check each individual product application against the criteria, and query any potential inclusion of animal ingredients, including those not present in the final product.

Working with manufacturers, audits for products at high-risk of cross contamination with animal ingredients are carried out to give vegan consumers further reassurance.

The Vegan Society renew the registration of each product annually to ensure information is accurate and up to date.
