Interview with Jasmijn de Boo the
Vegan Society 70th anniversary
Jasmijn de Boo is the CEO
of The Vegan Society, the
oldest and largest vegan
society in the world. Born
in the Netherlands, she
moved to the UK in 2004.
She has been studying for
and working in the animal
protection movement for
over 20 years.
Whatsbeen happening at The Vegan
This year, we launched our new charity branding and new website.
Weve been promoting our Vegan Trademark, which helps bring
vegan products into the mainstream our trademark team can
hardly keep up with the ongoing stream of new applications.
Weve also been collaborating with the BDA, the Association of UK
Dietitians, whonow ofcially recognise healthy vegandiets.
How didthe rebranding come about?
From market research, we identifed an urgent need to address
how the society presents itself to the world. A strong brand is
vital if we are going to turn negative myths around and support
the growth of veganism. The rebranding has gained us a larger
supporter base, helped us to raise funds, and inspired many more
people to consider giving veganisma try, which means that more
non-human animals beneft fromnot being exploited; this remains
our vision. Through a careful transformation, weve revitalised
our image and messages so that we can continue to be seen as an
organisation with credibility and infuence: a forward-thinking,
dynamic charity actively engaged withsocial change.
What dierence hasit made?
There has been a furry of interest in veganism recently, and the
media and PR coverage that The Vegan Society has had over the
last 18months has increased tenfold. We made alasting impression
with the biggest vegan pavilion ever at the Natural and Organic
Products Europe show in April, and our Love Vegan campaign
has generally had a huge positive impact, encouraging more and
more people to try going vegan. Membership to The VeganSociety
continues torise, withfgures now exceeding 4,000.
What next?
This year is our 70th anniversary. With strong roots to guide us,
shaped by our founding members, former staf, and committed
volunteers, we hope to celebrate this huge milestone with
individuals, organisations, and companies whopromote veganism,
and bring veganism to new audiences. We are ready for what
lies ahead, to work in partnership and infuence policies, food
practices, and better access to vegan products. It is only through
your donations and support that our work is possible. Visit the
teamat The Vegan Societys stall to fnd out more about becoming
a member.

But boosting and balancing your bodys pH levels isnt all about the

lifestyle justice for animals, justice
for global food production, better
health, putting a stop to violence and
environmental destruction amongst
other incentives.
