Hi everyone Margery here.
Anyway, that’s not today’s topic as it’s World Vegan Day this Wednesday. Not only that, it’s the start of World Vegan Month as well to commemorate the foundation of The Vegan Society! During this month shops, restaurants, workshops and homes around the globe celebrate veganism/the vegan lifestyle.
Be on the lookout for the new app Vnutrition coming out mid-November that helps vegans meet their nutritional goals. Also, be sure to check out the Vegan on the GO Campaign that is launching this year. Its goal is to boost the availability of on-the-go vegan lunch options and to help cement veganism as part of mainstream culture.
Hi everyone, Margery Mouse here.
That group is Animal Aid. This animal rights group campaigns against the abuse of animals and strives to promote a cruelty-free lifestyle. Other aspects include:
• Promotion of Veganism and reducing the amount of meat consumed daily
• Exposing the extent of the cruelty found within slaughterhouses
• Reducing the use of animals in experimentation such as cosmetics, toiletries and household cleaning or garden products
• Protesting legislation that lessens the protection of animals
• Campaigning against the hunting of animals for sport / clothing
Animal Aid attends and promotes all sorts of vegan events. In fact, this year they celebrated their 40th birthday with the Vegan Festival of Britain (20th May – 10th June). You can find a calendar of what events they’re attending here, and we've also donated some chocolate to support one of their upcoming events - The South West Christmas Without Cruelty Festival in Exeter on Saturday 18 November.
Moo Free Chocolates can happily say that our products are completely vegan and dairy free and are not tested on any animals whatsoever.
You can find more information about the group over at Animal Aid.com.

Hi everyone, it’s Margery.
As the name suggests, it is a celebration of all things vegetarian. It was started by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977 and supported by the International Vegetarian Union a year later. Whether you’re on the fence, just a beginner or a long term vegetarian, there’s something for everyone to benefit from.
Moo Free Chocolates can say that all our products are vegetarian and vegan friendly along with being dairy, gluten, egg, casein, wheat and soya free.
Keep track of the event on Facebook.
