Where our label will not appear

We don’t label products which are obviously vegan or vegetarian, where our customers have indicated that labelling is unnecessary. These include plain waters, plain vegetables and unseasoned flours.

Where to find the labels on packs

Vegetarian and vegan logos will always be displayed clearly, but may appear in different places on packs. This depends on the size and shape of the product, and other information that needs to be displayed.

Back of pack nutrition information

Where space is tight on pack the following statement will be included instead:

  • ‘Suitable for vegetarians’
  • ‘Suitable for vegans’.

Vegetarian Society Approved trademark

Look out for the Vegetarian Society Approved trademark on packs of Sainsbury’s vegetarian products. As well as being meat-free, products labelled with this logo must also contain free-range eggs, where eggs are used.
