People describing themselves as vegetarian come from all walks of life and can be found in every country of the world. Edward & Sons is a vegetarian company, which means all of our products are vegetarian.
According to the Vegetarian Resource Group: "Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, and poultry. Vegans are vegetarians who abstain from eating or using all animal products, including milk, cheese, other dairy items, eggs, honey, wool, silk, or leather. Among the many reasons for being a vegetarian are health, environmental, and ethical concerns; dislike of meat; non-violent beliefs; compassion for animals; and economics. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has affirmed that a vegetarian diet can meet all known nutrient needs." Shoppers may be confident that all Edward & Sons items are suitable for vegetarians. In addition, in August 1999, we pioneered a vegan icon for the front panel of our vegan items, providing at-a-glance recognition of our wholly plant-based groceries. Please read ingredient panels to confirm that a product will meet all of your needs.
