A vegan certificate is a document issued by accredited organizations for products that do not contain animal products or animal by-products and products that have not been tested on live animals. Products with vegan certification also carry a vegan label on them. In this way, these products are easily seen by consumers who are looking for vegan products.
When it is decided to obtain a vegan certificate, the first point to be considered is to work with an impartial and independent, accredited certification body. Approvals and documents issued by an accredited certification body are valid all over the world.
Today, many companies avoid animal ingredients as much as possible and turn to consumer preferences. Producer companies that want to be preferred in the face of changing dietary habits of consumers and to hold on to the market, produce options in accordance with vegan standards, obtain vegan certification for these products and try to be a preferred company for conscious consumers.
In today's information age, consumers are becoming more conscious more quickly and accurately, and most of the consumers are sensitive to nature, animals and sustainability. This means changing consumption habits. Especially companies operating in the field of food produce products suitable for every diet and try to meet the increasing demand for vegan food options in order to create a reliable brand perception.
Numerous vegan options are available today in many restaurants and grocery stores around the world. However, it's not just about food for vegans. For example, furs and leather products are not preferred by vegans. Textile products produced with silk raw material obtained from silkworms are also excluded products for vegans.
On the other hand, the vegan consumer market does not only accept individuals who have adopted a vegan lifestyle as a target audience. At the same time, conscious consumers who are sensitive to nature prefer vegan products in terms of protecting the ecosystem and ensuring sustainability and constitute the target audience for the vegan consumer market.
Having good vegan options is beneficial for both producers and consumers. Since high quality vegan products appeal to an expanding market, a vegan certificate is required for manufacturers. These products are sustainable, healthy, ethical and nature friendly.
How to Get a Vegan Certificate?
In order to obtain vegan certificate, confirmation by an impartial, independent and accredited laboratory that food, beverage, cosmetics, clothing and similar products do not contain any animal products or animal by-products, these products are not tested on any live animals and are produced in accordance with vegan criteria and must be reported.
It should not be forgotten that the purchasing decisions of consumers who adopt a vegan lifestyle and diet are stricter, thoughtful and conscious. The understanding of veganism is spreading rapidly all over the world every day and these consumers are looking for plant-based vegan products with a vegan label. Moreover, vegans are strict about not only food and drink but also the products they use daily meet vegan criteria. It covers many products that are necessary in a human life, such as vegan products, cosmetics, cleaning products, detergents, furniture and textiles.
Although the manufacturers claim that their products are completely vegan (100 percent), these claims do not mean much for conscious vegan consumers. Vegan consumers are extremely conscious, research the ingredients of each product and prefer products that they are sure to be produced in accordance with vegan standards.
However, most of the manufacturers are not transparent about the way of production, where the resources are obtained, whether there is a process that does not comply with vegan standards in the supply chain, and whether there is a system that controls these standards. For this reason, vegans prefer labeled and certified vegan products.
Vegan certified labeled products give consumers confidence. In this way, manufacturers create a more reliable brand perception and are preferred by the consumer.
