VEGNEWS: SOUTH KOREA IS ABOUT TO LABEL ALL OF ITS VEGAN PRODUCTS
Product certification body the Institute of Global Sustainability Certificate (IGSC) recently adopted the global BeVeg vegan trademark in Korea to help consumers identify vegan products and services. IGSC—composed of ISO auditors qualified to carry out the BeVeg vegan logo and license in accordance with vegan safety standards and integrity—provides certification services for vegan products, manufacturing facilities, and services based in Korea. Vegan products range from food and beverages to pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, textiles, fashion, accessories, household goods, and furniture.
Through vegan certification, Korean companies can prove that finished products do not contain animal ingredients through a series of raw and subsidiary materials inspection, factory inspection, and animal analysis. BeVeg certification also requires no animal testing. “As there is a lot of interest in the environment, animal protection, and health, interest in veganism is rapidly growing,” IGSC Head Kiwoong Jeong said. “Companies should wear the BeVeg certified vegan trademark proudly. It is the only recognized vegan trademark by international accreditation organizations, building unprecedented brand trust.”
BeVeg International—managed by the Law Offices of Carissa Kranz—is the world’s first ISO 17065 accredited certification body in the field of vegan certification, and is the world’s only certification body that has acquired the prestigious accreditation of 17067 as a conformity assessment program.
