In Europe the production of VEGAN products is increasing. Most of the times, they are defined and sold as "vegan" even if they are just “plant-based”. How to avoid being misled?
The European definition of a "vegan standard" has been created in February 2017 in Brussels by the major vegan organizations in Europe. The standard draft has already been delivered to the European parliament.
If you are a producer, distributor, retailer or consumer of vegan products or services, read the document carefully and always ask for the official vegan standard to be respected.
