Vegan Organic Network
‘Veganic’ is a combination of two words ‘vegan’ and ‘organic’. It’s a guarantee that food is grown in an organic way with only plant based fertilizers, encouraging functional biodiversity so pesticides are not necessary. No chemicals, no GMO and no animal by products in any part of the chain. The Vegan Organic Network is the only organisation in the UK solely working for food to be grown the veganic way.
Happy Cow is an online resource which helps people find vegan, and vegan-friendly, restaurants, health food shops, accommodation and more all around the world. It also features information on other topics such as recipes, travel and health. https://www.happycow.net/
