The Vegan Society has sought to strengthen its vegan accreditation through a new partnership with food and drink testing and traceability laboratory Food Forensics.
Launching today (25 May), the tie-in will see Food Forensics help identify any animal by-products or evidence of cross-contamination in tested products during the Vegan Society’s trademark certification process.
The Norwich-based UKAS-accredited business will use a next-generation sequencing DNA test – an untargeted method of testing that seeks out DNA sequences in products and compares them with a database containing more than 500,000 species. This regime would be able to spot even the smallest indication of an animal product, The Vegan Society said.
