12 Black-Owned Vegan Businesses to Support

You can use your power as a consumer to choose products that are vegan and animal test–free, and you can leverage that power to help close the racial wealth gap by buying from Black-owned businesses.

All the brands featured here are Black-owned and vegan and on animals – what’s not to love?

  • Axiology

    When it first started, Axiology’s goal was to create the most ethical lipstick on the planet, with vegan ingredients, no animal testing, and eco-friendly packaging – and it’s now doing just that, producing make-up that’s 100% kind to animals and the planet!

  • Dominee’s Doughnuts

    Dominee’s Doughnuts delivers UK-wide, meaning you can get these homemade baked vegan doughnuts rolled out to your front door in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. A warning for anyone with a serious sweet tooth: refraining from ordering everything on the website will be a difficult task.

  • AJ Nails Collection

    Giving yourself to a home manicure is a great way to practise self-care, and AJ Nails Collection is ideal for treating yourself.

    The independent nail polish brand is cruelty-free, and all its products are handcrafted in London.

  • Jane Carter Solution

    Hair care is essential, and Jane Carter Solution gets it. The cruelty-free brand has a product that’s right for every type of curly, coiled, or wavy hair.

  • ETHCS

    The statement brand behind the recognisable “VGANG” T-shirts and hoodies proves clothes are a great way to promote a cruelty-free lifestyle.

    The company states that it cares about workers’ rights, working only with manufacturers that offer a fair wage and guarantee that no forced or child labour is involved in the making of its collections.

  • Deserted Cactus

    A gem located in the heart of Peckham, south-east London, Deserted Cactus offers homemade vegan food that’s full of flavour. The cosy spot doesn’t have a set menu but usually boasts goodies such as vegan mac and cheese and southern-fried jackfruit.

  • Patty by Nature

    This vegan catering company usually makes the rounds of UK festivals and markets, but you can still enjoy its Jamaican-inspired delights via home delivery through Instagram. We recommend – a red lentil coconut curry patty.

  • Trap Vegan

    Trap Vegan is the first-ever urban clothing brand seeking to encourage mindfulness, compassion, and freedom for both animals and humans.

  • Sancho’s

    Sancho’s vegan clothing items are ethically made and sustainably sourced. You can find long-lasting pieces such as the recycled Hariette Jacket – made from 100% recycled PET bottles – and the bamboo and corn waste Roland V3 Trainers, available online or on Fore Street, Exeter.

     

  • Island Love Gourmet

    Island Love Gourmet delivers bake-at-home pizzas throughout the UK made with noni, yucca, moringa, and other ingredients that give them a distinctive Caribbean flair. Other delights, including nut-free scotch bonnet vegan cheddar and plantain ketchup with no added sugar, are also available.

  • K&R London

    Many of us are spending more time than ever indoors, and little touches that add something special to the space we spend our day-to-day in make a big difference.

    Cue bee-friendly K&R London candles, a great way to brighten up your home. You can choose from a large variety of scents, such as Rhubarb & Ginger and – our favourite – Bundle of Joy, made with lavender, ylang-ylang, geranium, and sweet orange.

  • Borough 22

    From lime-glazed and cinnamon-sugared to raspberry-glazed and gooey marshmallow s’mores, Borough 22 has delicious gluten-free doughnuts to satisfy any craving. Order them online and get them delivered – it’s the perfect way to treat yourself to something special while staying in.
