BeVeg is helping JaneUnChained achieve its goal of taping a second season of our breakthrough vegan cooking show! News of New Day New Chef, now available on Amazon Prime, has gone viral. Celebrity chefs and co-hosts will be profiled on our website as we gear up for next season. All of it is funded through donations to our non-profit, the JaneUnChained News Network.
Our first featured guest is Carissa Kranz, a celebrity co-host and producer with Jane Velez-Mitchell. Carissa is a vegan from birth, former professional ballet dancer, award winning multi-state attorney, named a Super Lawyer, and television legal eagle, who has appeared on Nancy Grace, Dr. Drew, Shepard Smith Reporting, Fox News, HLN/CNN, NBC, CBS, and worked as an attorney anchor with Dan Abrams for Law & Crime, covering the countries biggest courtroom trials live from New York, among other national media outlets.
Carissa is also the attorney, founder and CEO of BeVeg International, a law firm for vegan certification. BeVeg is considered the good housekeeping seal of approval for all things vegan, as mentioned in Forbes, PETA, CBS, NBC, Social Life Magazine, LiveKindly, Vegworld Magazine, and VegNews, to name a few. In addition, BeVeg is endorsed by celebrity supermodel, Christie Brinkley.
In case you didn’t know, veganism in general, even the word, is not currently carved out in the law. Right now, anyone can claim vegan, but the question is, by what standard? The word “vegan” is not regulated by any law. So, BeVeg, as a law firm, exists to raise the standard for consumer transparency. It requires companies that apply to disclose all ingredients, processes and trade secrets. Attorneys by nature are regulators! This firm is working to define and advocate for a legal vegan standard regarding labeling laws!
Much of this is discussed in Carissa‘s upcoming book to be published by Vegan Publishers entitled Vegan Law: Know Your Rights. Carissa is also a selected author for another book to be published by Lexington in Europe, and her authored chapter is entitled Global Vegan Label Law: The Need for Certification.
The law-firm-issued BeVeg vegan symbol has global trademark protection, and is now represented on every continent, except Antarctica. More information about having your product certified vegan by BeVeg, please visit: www.beveg.com.
