Vegan App Start-Up Ready For Download

A vegan app start-up has launched and is ready for download.

The app, which is available across iOS and Android, allows vegans to communicate with others about vegan-friendly products and their whereabouts.

According to the Vegan Check website, the app is “a centralised access point helping you to get plant-based products and services based on your location”.

Users can share products which will help people to discover new vegan products, as well as to provide feedback for vegan services and vegan companies.
