Every Clay Oven Bakery product has been licenced to carry the Vegetarian Society Approved vegan trademark in a major milestone for our Leicester based bakery. This long-standing and well-established trademark is highly regarded and reinforces our focus on producing vegan products in an ever-increasing market.
What’s the criteria?
The Vegetarian Society Approved trademarks are only licensed to products that meet strict criteria which involves independent ingredient and production method checking by experts at the Vegetarian Society.
Any product displaying the Vegetarian Society Approved vegan trademark has met these criteria:
- Free from animal-derived ingredients
- No cross-contamination during production
- No animal testing carried out or commissioned
From plain naans to pizza bases, spicy naans to mini naans, every product that we produce in our bakery has met the required standard to carry the Vegan Approved trademark Vegetarian Society Approved vegan trademark and this will always be the case. All of our ingredients are responsibly sourced from the UK where possible and are GM-free. We create the finest artisan bread products using traditional recipes, hand stretch the naans and bake them in a tandoor oven to give them an authentic look and flavour.
Clay Oven Bakery’s Technical Manager is proud of the accreditation; ‘’Even though our tasty naans were already suitable for vegans it was a satisfying moment when the Vegetarian Society accredited our products as vegan. Customers can purchase our products with confidence knowing that we only use quality vegan ingredients’’.
Vanessa Brown, Head of Business and Catering Services at the Vegetarian Society, said: “Customers are looking for a clear, reliable and fast indication that a product is vegetarian or vegan – our trademarks tick all these boxes. It’s great that Clay Oven Bakery’s naan breads will now be displaying the Vegetarian Society Approved vegan trademark.”
Our plans for the future are completely focused on creating new flavours and products that continue to deliver only the highest quality for customers to enjoy in their homes. We are working hard with retailers across the UK to ensure we are available to customers who shop in convenience stores such as Co-Op and national and regional supermarkets like Tesco and Booths.
