World Vegan Day

World Vegan Day

Hi everyone Margery here.

It’s November, just one more month til Christmas! Have you ordered your Moo Free Advent Calendar or Hammy Selection Box? Be sure to order yours soon as they tend to fly off the shelves very quickly!

Anyway, that’s not today’s topic as it’s World Vegan Day this Wednesday. Not only that, it’s the start of World Vegan Month as well to commemorate the foundation of The Vegan Society! During this month shops, restaurants, workshops and homes around the globe celebrate veganism/the vegan lifestyle.

Be on the lookout for the new app Vnutrition coming out mid-November that helps vegans meet their nutritional goals. Also, be sure to check out the Vegan on the GO Campaign that is launching this year. Its goal is to boost the availability of on-the-go vegan lunch options and to help cement veganism as part of mainstream culture.

Moo Free Chocolates' products are certified vegan, and they are also free from dairy, gluten, wheat, casein, egg and soya. Use our store locator to find the closest shop to you.

Animal Aid and Moo Free Chocolates

Animal Aid Logo

Hi everyone, Margery Mouse here.

Today I wanted to talk about a charity that has done a lot of work with Moo Free Chocolates.

That group is Animal Aid. This animal rights group campaigns against the abuse of animals and strives to promote a cruelty-free lifestyle. Other aspects include:

• Promotion of Veganism and reducing the amount of meat consumed daily
• Exposing the extent of the cruelty found within slaughterhouses
• Reducing the use of animals in experimentation such as cosmetics, toiletries and household cleaning or garden products
• Protesting legislation that lessens the protection of animals
• Campaigning against the hunting of animals for sport / clothing

Animal Aid attends and promotes all sorts of vegan events. In fact, this year they celebrated their 40th birthday with the Vegan Festival of Britain (20th May – 10th June). You can find a calendar of what events they’re attending here, and we've also donated some chocolate to support one of their upcoming events - The South West Christmas Without Cruelty Festival in Exeter on Saturday 18 November.

Moo Free Chocolates can happily say that our products are completely vegan and dairy free and are not tested on any animals whatsoever.

You can find more information about the group over at Animal Aid.com.

Vegetarian Awareness Month

Hi everyone, it’s Margery.

Did you know that this Sunday is the start of Vegetarian Awareness Month with World Vegetarian Day?

As the name suggests, it is a celebration of all things vegetarian. It was started by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977 and supported by the International Vegetarian Union a year later. Whether you’re on the fence, just a beginner or a long term vegetarian, there’s something for everyone to benefit from.

The main page of World Vegetarian Day has a ton of ways you can spread the word about Vegetarian Awareness Month here.

Moo Free Chocolates can say that all our products are vegetarian and vegan friendly along with being dairy, gluten, egg, casein, wheat and soya free.

Keep track of the event on Facebook.
