Why biobased?

By choosing bio-based products, we reduce the use of fossil resources and thereby also our impact on climate and the environment. In many cases, the actual production of bio-based materials also has less environmental impact than when fossil-based materials are produced.


Biobased refers to the type of raw material used to manufacture a product, and it does not relate to the materials produced. This means that if a product is bio-based, it is partly or wholly made from biomass, i.e. renewable materials of plant or animal origin.

Biobased Products


Organic means that the cultivation of plants or the keeping of the animals complies with the requirements of the European organic farming standard.


USDA Certified

The BioPreferred Program is a USDA-led initiative that aims to assist in the development and expansion of markets for biobased products. The program was created by the 2002 Farm Bill (legislation), and expanded as part of the 2014 Farm Bill. The increased development, purchase, and use of biobased products will reduce our Nation’s reliance on petroleum, and increase the use of renewable agricultural materials.

BioPreferred is transforming the marketplace for biobased products through two initiatives:

  • mandatory purchasing requirements for Federal agencies and Federal contractors

  • voluntary product certification and labeling



Vegan Certified

Trusted vegan labelling by the Vegan Trademark.

The Vegan Trademark has been helping people identify that a product is free from animal ingredients since 1990. 

The Vegan Trademark is the authentic international vegan standard and is managed by The Vegan Society; the charity that created the word ‘vegan’ back in 1944. Our dedicated and experienced vegan team check each product application against the below criteria, working with manufacturers and suppliers across a range of fields to ensure that each product meets the highest vegan standards. The Vegan Trademark is renewed on a yearly basis to ensure we have the most up to date information on all the products we certify.
