We have certain expectations from our members, these expectations are what we call our OMG standards. As a kindly ecosystem, we believe that we need to maintain these standards to ensure that we do not compromise the integrity of the OM Guarantee certification mark.
Please note, at this time, we currently apply these standards to companies as a whole and not just individual products they sell.
Animal Welfare Standard
The OM Guarantee™ will only be awarded to companies that adhere to the following animal welfare standards.
OM Guaranteed (Food, drink, cosmetics, and household) products cannot:
- Contain ingredients of meat, fish, fowl, animal by-products (including silk or dyes from insects, leather or animal skins, or hair), eggs or egg products, milk or milk products, honey or honey bee products
- Involve no animal testing of ingredients or finished product by a supplier, producer, manufacturer or independent party
Please provide supplier verification that animal products were not used in the manufacturing of ingredients.
Leaping Bunny Standard
Environmental Protection Standard
Equal Opportunity Employment
International Labour Standards on Child labor
Industry Sector Standards
Each industry sector will have its unique set of standards that companies will have to demonstrate they adhere to. It will not always be appropriate to expect some companies to be strictly vegan.
