  • To develop and maintain positive relationships with organisations sharing similar aims, encouraging co-operation between vegans throughout New Zealand, and the world.
  • To encourage the use of alternatives to all products derived wholly or partly from animals, to increase the supply of vegan food and commodities.
  • To assist vegans in making healthy lifestyle choices.
  • To create a vegan registration system in partnership with the NZ Vegetarian Society
