Introduction

The term ‘vegan’ was coined in England in 1944 by Donald Watson, the founder of the Vegan Society, to mean that “man should live without exploiting animals”.

A vegan diet and lifestyle excludes the following:

  • Meat, fish, dairy, eggs and honey.
  • Leather, wool, silk or any clothing that comes from an animal.
  • Products that have been tested on animals or which contain animal-derived substances.
