Malaysia Vegetarian Society

What is the Malaysian Vegetarian Society?

The Malaysia Vegetarian Society is a non-profit, non-religious society aimed at promoting the benefits of vegetarianism for our health, our environment and a more compassionate world.

The society abides by the international definition of vegetarianism, namely, ‘Vegetarianism is the practice of living without the use of meat, fish, or fowl, with or without the addition of eggs and dairy products’.

What are the aims and objectives of the society?
The aims of the Society are essentially to:

  1. Raise the level of awareness of vegetarianism (through things like public talks by health professionals, a reference library with books, articles, research papers, magazines about vegetarianism, an informative newsletter for members etc.) and
  2. Provide support for those wanting to learn more about the vegetarian lifestyle (largely through social activities like dinners, picnics, cooking demonstrations etc.)

Our goal is not to “convert” people but rather to provide information and support for individuals

Who want to make the transition to vegetarianism?

Ultimately, the Society aims to see the Malaysian public lead a vibrant, productive and disease-free life with an understanding of how one’s food choice affects one’s health and the environment.
