The Vegan Society

The Vegan Society are guests of honour at VegfestUK London as this fantastic campaign and outreach organisation celebrates its 70th birthday in 2014.


Since 1944 The Vegan Society has been recognised as the worldwide authority on veganism - 70 years ago this November, their founder Donald Watson coined the term ‘vegan’. As a strong international organisation, The Vegan Society is at the frontline of the vegan movement, and is pro-active in educating, campaigning and lobbying around vegan issues. They are celebrating their 70th anniversary with a fresh new brand and website, and are ready to push veganism further into the mainstream.

Every vegan and vegetarian has seen The Vegan Society’s international Vegan Trademark. The scheme is more important than ever as more and more people are shopping vegan. With over 14,000 products currently registered, the trademark team have worked with more businesses than any other vegan certification body.

The Society’s quarterly publication, The Vegan, won VegFest UK awards in 2008 and 2011, and continues to keep vegans everywhere in the loop with interesting articles, recipes, reviews, and volunteer news. The theme of the Spring 2014 issue is ‘growth’; veganism is growing rapidly, and there has been huge growth in the number of people taking The Vegan Society’s ‘vegan pledge’ and trying a vegan diet in the past 12 months.

The Vegan Society are the named charity at London Vegfest this year, so visit the stall for some free resources, to get involved, or to find out more about the essential work The Vegan Society does for veganism.
