ABOUT VEGAN FOUNDED
WHAT IS THE VEGAN FOUNDED TRADEMARK?
We are the world's first and ONLY certification that exclusively certifies and supports the 100% REAL vegan businesses. We will NEVER certify or promote the non-vegan owned businesses that your business has to compete against.
We certify people and businesses, not just products. The Vegan Founded symbol lets your customers know you are an authentic vegan owned business. Our organisation has fast become global since the demand for transparency by vegan consumers has risen. The vegan community want to know WHO they are buying from and WHERE their money ends up.
The trademark quickly identifies products and services as being free from animal ingredients and free from cruelty, and also means the founders are vegan too. It creates a stronger sense of unity between the buyer and business owner.
WHY BECOME VEGAN FOUNDED?
Veganism is on the rise, but it's mostly the non-vegan companies that are cashing-in. Even major meat and dairy corporations are now profiting from our community, whilst simultaneously exploiting animals! This also casts a nasty shadow on the often smaller, authentic, vegan-owned businesses.
The Vegan Founded logo represents full transparency, honesty and trust. It's something the big corporations can never get, finally giving you the upper hand. A vegan can trust that their money will never go towards animal suffering and exploitation when supporting a Vegan Founded business. This is the beginning of the demand for ethical businesses, not just vegan options.
Customer trust means more support and more sales!
