For the last twelve months, this organisation has been fighting a campaign alongside some of our suppliers' against Revenue and Government to try and prevent the imposition of 23% VAT on vitamins and food supplements. Revenue first attempted to apply 23% VAT on March 1st, but a concerted campaign by retailers and you, our customers, beat this back and the matter was deferred until Nov 1st. With this date looming, we are now facing down the planned 23% VAT application again. The next few days will be telling as the Minister for Finance once again has an opportunity to address the issue in favour of health-conscious consumers. We hope he takes into account health promotion, fairness and social-minded policymaking when making his decision for publication in the Finance Bill. Throughout the campaign, one man stood head and shoulders above others and selflessly gave of his time and energy to promote the case for consumers. We were privileged to be able to honour this man for his dedication to the cause, your cause, at our annual gathering at Vitality in Dublin.

A great day at Dublin Vegfest eating Buttercream Dream cookies as big as our heads and finally tasting (and loving) the bacon, sausage, and egg muffin from Vegan Sandwich Co, all washed down with King of kefir straight from the tap while we listened to some impassioned speakers. I can't even convey in words how friendly this festival is...so much love and hard work from everyone involved 💚 Then onto Vitality to find the latest and the best in health food and wellness. A brilliant day...our only regret is not eating more food! ... See MoreSee Less
