2018 NEWS



The V-Label brand is the international brand par excellence most recognized in the world. It is registered in over 30 countries spread over 5 continents

  • All the European countries
  • U.S.A.
  • China
  • South Korea


Despite its spread the V-Label brand has maintained uniformity of allocation criteria in all the countries where it is used.

This feature is an advantage for:

  • Distributors: despite having producers in different countries, they will be able to count on a clear and unambiguous allocation criterion without differences
  • Manufacturers: despite having production sites in different countries, they will face the same approval process without any difference
  • Customers: they will buy the same “veg” quality regardless of the production site


The specification used to issue the V-Label has been created and approved by the major European «veg» Associations.

The document does not limit itself to providing the criteria for the awarding of the brand; above all it provides a clear and univocal definition of “vegetarian” and “vegan” in order to eliminate any doubt about the suitability of the product by defining the difference between the two categories.

The criteria are constantly updated to be as close as possible to current legislation and to be in step with new production technologies in the field of food and cosmetics.


The V-Label is distributed in each country by a local contact person, which allows us to be neighbors both to producers and consumers.

Being able to speak the same language of our customers and knowing the market in which they work allows us to offer a complete and customized service based on the local situation.

The cultural, linguistic and market differences are never an obstacle, but rather are a continuous enrichment for our network that every year gathers together to share experiences and best practices.


The V-Label brand carries out proper tests for each approved reference.

Self-declarations by producers are not accepted; a document type check is carried out and when necessary an audit or inspection is carried out at the production site.

Despite the rigorousness of the tests, the approval process proves to be very dynamic and practical for producers who at all times can count on the experience of local contacts.


The V-Label is distributed only by the main European «veg» Associations and their partners to guarantee the quality of controls.

Thanks to the seriousness of the approval process, they are the ones qualified to take on the responsibility of the product’s suitability, thus protecting the manufacturer and the distributor of the product.

This is the main reason why self-declaration is not accepted in verification.


The V-Label is available in the “vegetarian” and “vegan” categories.

This allows the manufacturer to offer a wider range of products to the final consumer while maintaining a uniform image.

The categories have different graphics in order to be easily recognizable by consumers who will be able to buy the most suitable products for their lifestyle in complete safety.

This allows the manufacturer and distributor to offer a clear service to the public.


The V-Label brand was born in Italy in the ’70s and was officially presented internationally at the first European Vegetarian Congress held in 1985 organized by A.V.I. (Italian Vegetarian Association).

Today it is used as an institutional symbol by various «veg» Associations and was already used as a «veg» product identifier in 1989.

The history of the V-Label brand is one guarantee and sign of excellence in a market saturated with impromptu brands and lacking the necessary experience in terms of product approval.


The V-Label, in addition to identifying products suitable for a “veg” lifestyle, offers the opportunity for producers and distributors to access a wide range of services.

Our experts are available for consulting, image, graphics and communication, thus offering a complete service to the customer who wants to enter the vegetarian and vegan market without risks and gaps.


The V-Label is entirely free for retailers and distributors.

In fact, the manufacturers handle the verification process and sustain the costs for obtaining the brand.

The rates are structured in such a way as to make the V-Label accessible to everyone, from small producers to large companies.

Custom solutions are possible.
