United Kingdom-based marketing agency Saffron Society recently opened to support vegan startups as they launch their businesses. The full-service agency offers assistance with business start-up challenges such as branding, marketing, digital design, and team training services. Saffron Society was created by 28-year-old Fleurie Forbes-Martin, who spent the last eight years working in advertising, digital, and branding agencies and became vegan following an “epiphany in a chicken restaurant.” She aims to help entrepreneurs get ready to launch their own vegan businesses so they can inspire others to switch to a vegan lifestyle. “We want to work with people that share our ‘no compromise’ mindset and agree that vegan consumers deserve the same breadth of choice, quality of product, and considerate customer service as everyone else,” Forbes-Martin said. “Launching this agency is already a dream come true.” The agency launch comes at a time when veganism is on the rise in the UK. A 2018 report by British company Compare the Market, Limited found that the UK’s vegan population has increased by 600 percent since 2016.
