The Vegetarian Society receive many emails and calls about vegetarian food labelling and the issues surrounding them. Examples of the types of queries we receive include:
Items of food labelled as being suitable for vegetarians when they are not: they may contain fish, parmesan or a slaughter-derived additive, or there may be an issue with cross contamination in a products handling/production. This may either be a finished product available from a supermarket or an item on a restaurant menu.
Help and advice can be found on the following pages:

We also have a Food Alerts page which is updated on a regular basis to inform you of products to look out for.
