For which groups of consumers is a category suitable?

Green cells: The corresponding group consumes such products/menus.
Yellow cells: The corresponding group consumes such products/menus only with some restrictions.
Red cells: The corresponding group does not consume such products/menus.

Group      vegan      lacto-vegetarian ovo-vegetarian ovo-lacto-vegetarian with meat, egg, milk
uncritical meateaters          
consciously meateaters     only a few eggs (cholesterol) from bio-free-range-hens only a few eggs (cholesterol) from bio-free-range-hens prefer bio-meat, bio-eggs and low fat meals
animal-protectors     only with free-range eggs only with free-range eggs only meat and eggs form animals that are well kept
Jews        

don't eat meat from certain animals. Other animals have to be ritually slaughtered.

Moslems         don't eat pork. Other animals have to be ritually slaughtered.
Hindus     for Hindus eggs are equal to meat for Hindus eggs are equal to meat Hindus are lacto-vegetarians
"Occasional vegetarians"         only if no acceptable vegetarian alternative exists
Ovo-Lacto-Vegetarians     prefer free-range-eggs prefer free-range-eggs  
Ovo-vegetarians     prefer free-range-eggs    
Lacto-vegetarians          
Vegans          
Animal rights activists          

The result is: The less animal ingredients are contained in a given product/menu, the larger becomes the potential customer interest.
In this list it is assumed that vegan products taste just as good as those with animal ingredients.
This is absolutely possible but could involve a certain adjustment effort by some chefs/product developers who before have cooked almost exclusively in a meat-based fashion. Of course, in such cases the license-givers of the European Vegetarian label will assist gladly.

What is still missing in this list: Persons who cannot consume certain animal products for health reasons. An example: in Switzerland (according to the Swiss milk producer federation) 17 % of the population suffers from a lactose incompatibility and thus has problems with products containing milk. In France even 42 % of the population is affected. For these persons products containing lactose lead to indigestion and therefore for them only "Ovo vegetarian" and "vegan" choices are suitable.
