Sales of vegan and vegetarian products have increased exponentially in recent years. Modern consumers are concerned about personal health and wellbeing, environmental impact, and the transparency of what they consume, leading many to explore a vegan or plant-based lifestyle.
Intertek Hong Kong was invited to speak at the Vegetarian Food Asia 2023. The Expo aimed at providing a platform for those who were passionate about vegetarian living, nutrition, and the future of health trends. Its speech delivered the insights on “Vegan vs Vegetarian… The Need of A Formal Vegan Certification”.
