VEGWORLD: TURKEY AND THE ASIA-PACIFIC IS A GLOBAL LEADER FOR BEVEG VEGAN CERTIFICATION
AGFO, which stands for Assured Goals and Featured Operations, as well as Agriculture and Food Organization, was the first certification body to offer GLOBALGAP Aquaculture, ASC Farm and MSC CoC accreditations in Turkey. AGFO auditors are skilled and trained on robust auditing programs by ISO, BRC, IFS and now BEVEG vegan certifications as approved by the National Accreditation Center (NAC). NAC accredited the BeVeg vegan standard to ISO 17065 and ISO 17067, and adopted the published standard as a “conformity assessment program” that certification bodies can apply to for accreditation. BeVeg International is managed by a law firm, the Law Offices of Carissa Kranz.
“Through vegan certification, companies prove that the consumer-end product did not exploit animals and does not contain ingredients of animal origin through a series of inspections, document disclosures, factory audits, and lab analysis,” says Carissa Kranz, attorney founder and CEO of BeVeg. “The BeVeg vegan standard holds the supply chain accountable to unprecedented vegan integrity.” Attorney Kranz is a former prosecutor, national television legal expert, and a vegan from birth.
