  • Who can become Vegan Founded certified?
    Any vegan business, service, company, establishment, charity or freelancer can become Vegan Founded if owned/directed exclusively by vegans. All products and services must be vegan friendly and follow ethical practices. Our current registered businesses and organisations range from freelance personal trainers and tattoo artists to restaurants, cosmetic brands, food products all the way up to international organisations.
  • What makes Vegan Founded different to other symbols?
    There is no other trademark that lets the public know if the product, service or establishment is owned/directed by vegans. Vegan Founded don't just register products/services, we register the business. Having this symbol on your products, website, or displayed on your premises tells your target market that your business is helping towards the vegan communities united mission to end animal exploitation. When someone sees this logo they know that the business and products are vegan and cruelty free.
  • Do you just approve products?
    No. Vegan Founded pride ourselves on approving the founders/directors of a business or charity, as well as freelancers. We approve products and the business as being vegan.
  • Can I register my business and all of my products?
    Yes. There is no limit on the amount of products you can register along with your business registration. You can apply for both business and products at the same time.
  • I own a restaurant can I apply?
    Yes! We love registering vegan restaurants and catering companies. We know that menus can be adapted and changed which is why we ask you for a menu example and to read and sign a declaration. Up to date menus can be requested at any time during your registration.
  • How long does it take to register?
    This depends on which tier membership you are choosing. Typically our process takes between 3 - 7 days. We have optimised our process to be as quick and easy as possible.
  • Can I be Vegan Founded if a non-vegan works for me?
    Yes. We know that you can't always find a vegan for a position within your business and are happy to register a business that is founded by vegans and offers services or creates products that are free from animal cruelty. You cannot however pay for or supply non-vegan staff with non-vegan foods or products.
  • Who runs Vegan Founded?
    Vegan Founded CIC is run entirely by vegans for the community. As a registered community interest company, any profit has to legally go towards helping the Vegan Founded community. Any excess is donated to animal sanctuaries. In the near future, we hope to support new vegan start-ups with grants. You can support our mission by telling others about us or donating. The Vegan Founded team consists of a board of three directors with a combined 25+ years of being ethical vegans which gives us decades worth of consumer concerns around transparency and the understanding of how important it is to support each other in our shared vegan mission.
  • How long does the registration last?
    Our registration lasts for 12 months, but don't worry we will inform you when your renewal date is coming up so you can easily renew your membership.
  • How much does the registration cost?
    We offer different tiers of membership so you can choose the tier that is best suited to your business needs and goals. Our Free tier is, yes you guessed it, free of charge but with limited benefits. Our Basic tier differs depending on the size of your business, your annual turnover and amount of employees but is very competitive compared to similar certifications of this nature, and with way more benefits for your business. This tier is free for non-profits and charities. Our premium tier is our highest priced membership and includes additional benefits like included advertisements and higher search authority. This tier is for businesses wanting to up-level their Vegan Founded membership and gain even more benefits. As a registered community interest company, any profit has to legally go towards helping the Vegan Founded community. Any excess is donated to animal sanctuaries. In the near future, we hope to support new vegan start-ups with grants.
  • How do you support my business?
    We understand that the vegan sector is booming and non-vegan corporations are heavily pushing their plant based products. The Vegan Founded registration is something they will never be able to get. This sets you apart from the non-vegan companies that are cashing-in on our vegan community. We are here to offer as much support as we can. We enlist your business on our online directory and publicise the directory through online adverts across all social platforms. Your business gets a free social media shoutout and post on the Vegan Founded accounts, promotion via our competitions, discounted website and mailing list advertising rates and discounted business support services. We are also here to help and support your business. We have a huge list of contacts in the industry that are of course vegan, and can more than likely point you in the right direction to solve any business needs you may have.
  • Can I advertise with Vegan Founded?
    Vegan Founded businesses can advertise with us on our website and mailing list. We are a non-profit, community-interest company. The money made through adverts cycles back around to helping the entire Vegan Founded business community.
