Whitakers Chocolates confirms status as a vegan-friendly manufacturer
UK confectionery business Whitakers Chocolates’ products are officially suitable for vegans after being successfully registered by the Vegan Society.
The move applies across its dark fondant creams, wafers, chocolate bars and honeycomb bites ranges which have been certified as not involving or containing animal-derived ingredients.
As previously reported by Confectionery Production, the company now holds the highest attainable BRC accreditation (AA+) for quality, safety and legality, has subsequently been focused on ensuring its manufacturing processes aligned with the requirements set by the vegan Society.
William Whitaker, managing director of Whitakers Chocolates, explained: “As the world of food evolves it is important that as a food manufacturer, we embrace it whether the change is due to health, the environment or personal choice. We offer a wide range of confectionery products and through constant development we want to ensure they are available for everyone to enjoy. We’re delighted to be able to offer consumers a vegan range and look forward to growing more products within this sector.”
Whitakers Chocolates’ products are already suitable for vegetarians so to be able to serve the vegan market is a huge accolade for this Yorkshire based company and is sure to be one to watch for the future.
