ROCOL secure vegan trademark for products in metal packaging
ROCOL has secured the Vegan Trademark for 45 of its food production products, including those that come in metal packaging.
The company is a UK manufacturer of technically advanced industrial lubricants and claims to be the first company of its kind to secure the trademark.
ROCOL has secured vegan certification for its FOODLUBE and PUROL ranges. The range also has ISO 21469 certification, Halal, and Kosher, alongside NSF approvals and accreditations.
“Data from SmartProtein/Nielsen reports 73% growth in sales of plant-based food in the UK between 2018 and 2020, and 63% growth in sales of plant-based meat alternatives as consumers reduced their meat consumption or switched to vegan, vegetarian, or flexitarian diets,” stated ROCOL Food & Hygiene segment specialist, Andy Howard.
“According to The Vegan Society, more than 90% of vegans and vegetarians look for vegan verification on the products they buy, and 85% believe that third-party certification is important. The Vegan Trademark is the most recognised mark globally, and this is why we sought to register products from our FOODLUBE and PUROL ranges,” Howard added.
