UK-based meatless brand Quorn Foods has received vegan certification from animal-rights organization The Vegan Society for all of its plant-based products. The new vegan trademark logo will serve to help consumers distinguish Quorn’s vegan products (such as nuggets, burgers, and fish fillets) from those that contain eggs. “Quorn’s newly-registered vegan products are already being enjoyed by vegans in the UK and abroad, and by clearly labelling them the company makes sure it is widely known that its products are suitable for everyone,” The Vegan Society’s chief executive George Gill said. “Providing vegan options makes clear commercial sense for businesses, which can open up their market to a fast growing number of vegans worldwide.” Quorn was acquired by non-vegetarian company Monde Nissin for $830 million in 2015 and sought out certification under the company’s new (vegan) CEO Henry Soesanto. Quorn’s head of marketing Alex Glen said that the brand’s vegan products are performing well and new plant-based items are currently under development. The new Vegan Society certification label will appear on all vegan Quorn products later this year.
