Carissa, who has been vegan since birth, is a regular legal expert for major media networks including Fox, CNN, NBC and CBS and is currently an anchor with vegan and animal advocacy media outlet Jane Unchained News Network where she has her own weekly show Laws that Matter: Veganism & Law.
BeVeg focuses on global vegan certification for products and services, and vegan labeling law and is ISO accredited.
The firm is focused on defining a legal vegan standard, that provides the consumer with true truth and transparency in labeling laws.
In this episode Carissa discusses:

• Why she’s making vegan certification and labeling laws her mission
• The difference between BeVeg and other vegan certification programs
