BeVeg becomes the first vegan certification standard to gain global accreditation

Yvonne O'Halloran

BeVeg International just became the world’s first vegan certification standard to be globally accredited, meaning it will be recognized by ISO 17065, the international quality standard for organizations trying to certify products, services, and processes. BeVeg International is already a leader in vegan certification, and this just solidifies its dedication to protecting consumers.

To achieve accreditation, BeVeg had to go through a tough process to prove the certification properly follows best practices established worldwide. These practices are for audit and credit certification and must be in accordance with industry expectations.

Carissa Kranz, an attorney and founder and CEO of BeVeg, explained why they sought out accreditation. Calling the process “rigorous,” she said BeVeg wants to “serve as an independent validation to assure our customers and consumers that BeVeg’s systems are comprehensive and that every BeVeg certified vegan company or product follows strict – uniform – standards to assure not only food safety but vegan quality assurance for all products across all industry sectors.”

BeVeg stands out as being the only law firm-drafted vegan standard, with its trademark symbols being the only law firm-issued symbols in the world.

With the accreditation announcement from the National Accreditation Center, BeVeg vegan logo is now officially the vegan trademark of choice.
