Main Application Intake
Apply for a Custom Quote
Instructions & Process
Application Fee — NONE.
The cost of certification is based on a number of custom factors. We consider the number of products applied for, company revenue, whether you are a brand owner or private label, whether your product is made at a certified BeVeg vegan facility, whether your facility has other safety certifications, whether it is a shared facility or dedicated vegan facility. Likewise, we assess the risk of cross-contamination at the facility, we consider where the manufacturing facility is located, how many manufacturing plants there are, number of employees and many other factors to ensure a unique quote that makes perfect sense for your company or brand.
The process usually takes 4-6 weeks but may be longer for larger submissions. Similarly, applications can apply for rush processing.
Products approved for BeVeg Vegan Certification must not contain ingredients of animal origin, or be processed, clarified, or finished with any animal products. This includes no animal GMO’s and we require no animal testing of ingredients or finished product.
Once a custom quote is generated and accepted. We ask for a deposit. Products applied for will then go through the paperwork audit process. We ask for all ingredients, supplier statements, trade secrets, processing aids, and manufacturing facility information. Once the paperwork process is complete, an on-site audit is scheduled and depending on the product lab testing may also be required. After completion of the audit process and satisfaction of all non-conformities, we finalize the certification contracts and paperwork and legal affidavits.
Once approved, we require proof of how the BeVeg global vegan trademark will be applied on product packaging before production.
