The Vegan Society is the oldest vegan organisation in the world and was founded in 1944. At the establishment of the Society, founder Donald Watson and his wife coined the term ‘vegan’ to describe the lifestyle of what were then called the non-dairy vegetarians. The Vegan Society continues to hold true to the vision of those founding members as we work towards a world in which humans do not exploit other animals.
The Society now works to help more people become vegan with confidence, to encourage more trusted Vegan Society Trademarked products to be available in shops, and to make veganism more mainstream. We provide information and guidance on various aspects of veganism for new and potential vegans, caterers, healthcare professionals, educators and the media. We also co-ordinate a variety of campaigns to raise awareness of important issues around veganism. Our free app VeGuide helps thousands of people to go vegan each month with free recipes, advice and motivational messages tailored to their reasons for going vegan.
