Veg Labeling

Vegetarians call for mandatory veg labeling symbols on products.

The Middle East Vegetarian Group (Meveg) have called on the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to implement a mandatory “veg” symbol on food products in order to clearly mark products as vegetarian- or vegan-friendly. Meveg founder, Sandhya Prakash, stated that if no labeling is put into place, vegetarians will have few ways of knowing whether the products they are purchasing include animal-based ingredients, and that a rising number of vegetarians means that clearly marked products should be available. Meveg’s plans include implementing a vegetarian labeling plan practice for both restaurant menus and product labels.
