Vegetarian trademark


Why you should choose the Vegetarian Society Approved vegetarian trademark

The Vegetarian Society Approved vegetarian trademark are only licensed to products that meet our strict criteria. This isn’t done on a self-certification basis (after all, even manufacturers in the know can get it wrong occasionally). The Vegetarian Society Approved vegetarian trademark accreditation involves independent ingredient and production method checking by our experts here at the Vegetarian Society.

By displaying our vegetarian trademark, not only are you reassuring your customers they can trust your products, but as a client of the Vegetarian Society Approved trademark scheme you also have the credibility of being permitted to display the most long-standing and well-established trademark of its type – and you have the peace of mind that you can be certain your products are suitable for your vegetarian target market.

We don’t just license our trademarks to food products – they are displayed on food, drink, alcoholic drinks, cosmetics and beauty products, household and cleaning products, health products, things for the baby, pet foods, restaurants, pubs and a whole lot more! 

What is the process?

In order for your product to be licensed to carry our either of our trademarks, it must meet our strict criteria. We check your ingredient lists and specification sheets, and if they meet our criteria (once you have paid the licence fee) you can display the relevant trademark. Of course, if you want to display our trademark, but your products or production methods do not yet meet our criteria, we’re very happy to work with you to bring them up to our required standards.
