Vegan Certification and Trademark System


The Vegan Certification (V-Cert) and Trademark (TM) System was established by the Asia Pacific Vegetarian Union in order to ensure vegetarian consumers’ rights and food safety concerns around the world.


Hong Kong Centre


Asia Pacific Vegan Certification Centre in Hong Kong is the first Centre in Asia Pacific since 2015 performing food testing for world's vegetarian population.  In order to enhance the testing service demanded for plant based products and daily necessities, the centre is established by the Hong Kong Vegan Association, the Hong Kong LOHAS Association and the Hong Kong Food Science & Technology Association, with assistance from professionals in different fields such as food technology, nutrition and vegetarian culture. The Hong Kong Certification Centre research team is supported by the panel of HOKLAS accredited laboratories recognized by the government.


The Asia Pacific Vegetarian Union is willing to assist with your products to be certified and promoted to consumers through different channels and APVU congress or global exhibition events.
