TÜV Rheinland Group, a leading international testing and certification service provider, has awarded Vegan certification to Primark clothing, shoes and carrier bags. The certified products were tested to ascertain that they were free of materials of animal origin. Primark is the first company in the world to receive the mark for fashion products.

TÜV Rheinland Vegan Certification is the first mark that not only declares a product as vegan, but that it has been tested and inspected by an independent third party. The certified product is declared free of animal derived materials such as silk, wool, leather, pearl, feather, down, bone, exotic skins or fur. Process chemicals have been declared by the producer to be free of substances of animal origin have been verified. The test mark will be issued and valid for one year after completion of testing, document review, and factory inspection by auditors.

The tests are based on legal labelling requirements for textiles and shoes as well as verification based on a Bill of Materials (BOM). All materials are either checked by microscopic analysis, fibre analysis or other appropriate test methods. Suppliers of process chemicals have to provide a declaration of conformity, stating that their products are manufactured without any raw materials of animal origin.

In recent years, with the popularity of vegetarian food on social media, people's acceptance of vegetarian food has gradually increased, and more and more people have become vegetarian or vegan. People refuse to eat meat for various reasons, such as environmental protection, health, protection of animals, and religious beliefs. Vegetarians do not eat meat and poultry, while vegans are stricter. They completely eliminate the consumption of all foods containing animal-derived ingredients, including dairy products, eggs, honey, etc.

Growing concern about the global climate crisis and the role played by fast fashion means attitudes to consumption are changing fast, particularly among young people. A study conducted by Mintel, an international market intelligence agency, found that more than a third of fashion shoppers would like to spend their money in stores that do not use animal products.
