About:

The Vegan Society is a registered educational charity (no. 1468880) that promotes and supports the vegan lifestyle.

Veganism is a way of living that seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing and any other purpose

The Society was formed in 1944 by a group of vegetarians who recognised the ethical compromises of eating eggs and dairy products.

The Vegan Society is the first point of contact for new vegans and those seeking information, including caterers, print and broadcast media, health professionals, teachers and government.
