A Little More Information…
Use of the NZVS Approved Trademark is a proactive way to identify your product as suitable for the growing vegetarian community. The logo removes confusion and mistrust of the casual use of the word ‘vegetarian’ that can be incorrectly applied to products that contain animal ingredients. It also declares that the product has not been tested on animals.
The Trademark is approved for products which fit specific criteria. Products must be manufactured and sold in New Zealand to use the NZVS Approved trademark.
The Approved trademark is now proudly displayed internationally on a diverse range of products, from food to beverages to skincare.
We are always happy to consult on products or ingredients to extend the range of food suitable for vegetarians.
