Vegan products must, as far as is possible and practical, be entirely free from animal involvement. Vegetable, mineral or plant/mineral-derived synthetic alternatives are acceptable, as are microbiologically-fermented substances of plant origin. The manufacture and/or development of a vegan product, and where applicable its ingredients, must not involve, or have involved, the use of any animal product, by-product or derivative. Also, the development and/or manufacture of a vegan product, and where applicable its ingredients, must not involve, or have involved, testing of any sort on animals conducted at the initiative of the manufacturer or on its behalf, or by parties over whom the manufacturer has effective control.
Ethicalsuperstore.com carries a wide range of vegan products, many of which carry the Vegan Society's trademark. You'll be surprised how many vegan alternatives there are, such as VeganEgg which is a vegan alternative to eggs, vegan mayonnaise , our hugely popular Suma vegan beans and sausages , even a vegan alternative to duck! A surprising amount of everyday products contain animal derived ingredients which is why we stock ranges of vegan sweets and vegan chocolate.
