Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any idea how we can get the food companies or FDA (whoever is in charge) to label their foods/ products that are suitable for vegetarians or vegans. Is there a petition we can set up or anything??

For every law that the FDA passes, the food companies find a way to sneak around it. I wouldn't waste my time on that if I were you.

Food companies will follow the money. Spend your money on products that already do label their products as veg*n and stop buying products that don't. And when you stop buying those other products, email the company and let them know why you now buy their competitors product instead of theirs.

FDA can't handle truly protecting us from bad medicine, how in the world should we expect them to manage/regulate something like labeling a food suitable for veg*ns without screwing THAT up as well?

More than supporting products that are labeled veg*n, we should also be supporting the veg*n products that we have already instead of whining and boycotting because the parent company or the company that owns them is evil somehow. The more manufacturers see that there's a demand for vegan products, the more they'll make vegan products and the more it'll become "vogue" TO make vegan products.

After all, organic wasn't well known until companies realised there was a demand for organic. Now, just about every manufactured food you can name has an organic cousin sitting proudly on the shelf.

Numbers speak louder than emails. Especially when those numbers are sales numbers.

Sainsbury's labels pretty much everything that's vegan, but there's still the problem of few things qualifying.
