Who we are
The Vegan Society is an educational charity that promotes and supports the vegan lifestyle.
Veganism is a way of living that seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practical, 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.
In April 2007 the Society moved to a new national headquarters in central Birmingham.
