MASTERCLASS | Vegan Product Integrity

What do you need to consider and address to label a product as being vegan?


The growing plant-based movement – especially in terms of vegan products – presents many challenges for the food industry. The unique and multifactorial aspects of veganism, combined with a lack of regulatory guidance on labelling, manufacturing and testing practices, often leave the industry in the dark on how to manage vegan products effectively.

This Masterclass will shed light on how to understand and address products labelled as vegan, providing comprehensive insight into all the important factors that must be carefully considered to ensure vegan product integrity.
