Tesco Commits to Labeling Vegan & Vegetarian Products
Animal Aid reports that major supermarket Tesco has pledged to “introduce vegan labeling across its own-brand product range.” The article notes that Tesco is now the second supermarket that has committed to do so–with Adsa being the first, in the wake of Animal Aid’s Mark It Vegan campaign.
The supermarket created its own vegan and vegetarian symbols, which should be on all “relevant goods” within two years. A spokesperson for Tesco stated:
“We continue to be committed to serving all our shoppers a little better every day and our new Tesco vegan and vegetarian labels will help the growing number of customers looking to buy these products. We want to ensure that all our products that are suitable for vegans are labelled as vegan wherever possible, and the new labels will start to appear on products in the near future. We will take a phased approach to updating our product labels with the aim to complete this process within the next two years.”
