The term “Vegan” was coined in 1944 by a small group of vegetarians who separated from the Leicester Vegetarian Society in England to form the Vegan Society. Although the vegan diet was defined early on in The Vegan Society’s beginnings in 1944, The term “vegan” was chosen from the combination of the first and last letters of “vegetarian.” By 1949, the first definition of veganism had been born. The society was first registered as a charity in August 1964 but its assets were later transferred to a new charity when it also became a limited company in December 1979.
