What is the vegan certificate of the Vegetarian Foundation today?
Today, the Vegetarian Foundation is an international non-governmental organization which promotes a plant-based diet and reduces the suffering of animals considered for production.
- This certifies vegan products in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Peru, through a process of inspecting both the components of the product, whether it is food or not, and the process of its production, to ensure that it does not contain vegan ingredients of animal origin nor that no animals were harmed in its production.
It has also certified vegan products from more than 90 companies in various categories such as food, cosmetics, medicine and shoes, among others. In Chile, the foundation has successfully certified around a thousand products. Furthermore, the Foundation took the path to certification of vegan products in the countries where it is present.
Within the portfolio of brands that received this certificate are:
- Slim Pop
We know that there aren’t many gelatin-free options on the market, so the V-Label has had a positive effect by offering the consumer a product with greater credibility. “This seal is supported by the European Union and currently supports more than 30,000 products in more than 31 countries,” Lesly Grimaldo concluded.
