About the Charity

The Vegetarian Society is the UK’s original and leading voice for the vegetarian and vegan movement. Our aim is to inspire and support everyone to move towards more sustainable and cruelty-free choices in their lives because kindness counts.

Through our education and engagement programmes to campaigning, policy work and product accreditation, we strive for a world without animal cruelty.

We do this by using our knowledge and expertise to work across our membership, communities, business, government, and likeminded organisations to help change behaviour, drive innovation and expand food choice across the industry.

In doing so we continue to build on our 175+ year legacy to grow a community driven by a collective desire to secure a kinder, healthier and more sustainable future for every life on earth.

We are open minded and inclusive, welcoming to new people no matter where they are on their veggie journey. We work across a wide spectrum of beliefs and embrace all who want to learn through and non-judgemental and educational approach.
