VITAL PROTEINS SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY COMMITMENTS
At Vital ProteinsTM, we are committed to doing business in a way that respects people and the planet. While we are incredibly proud of the social and environmental actions we’ve taken to date, we know we can continuously push for better.
SUSTAINABILITY & SOURCING
Vital ProteinsTM is Committed to Responsibly-Sourced Collagen Peptides
Whether it’s sourcing collagen peptides or any other ingredient in our portfolio, we prioritize partnerships with suppliers who are committed to high-quality ingredients, sustainability initiatives, respect for indigenous people, and transparent business practices.
- We source our collagen peptides from select suppliers who are committed to:
- Providing premium collagen peptides that meet our high quality standards; and
- Sourcing them from organizations that meet our social and environmental standards
- We are committed to our products being deforestation-free by 2025
Vital ProteinsTM Is Committed to Improving Transparency and Traceability
Vital ProteinsTM has decided to spearhead a cross-functional, collaborative effort to help improve traceability and transparency within a globally-based supply chain for collagen peptides.
At Vital ProteinsTM, we’re committed to the following short- and long-term goals:
- By 2025:
- We aim to primarily source collagen peptides from suppliers who can provide traceability documentation throughout the entire supply chain; and
- Our products will be 100% deforestation free.
Vital ProteinsTM Uses Collagen Peptides, an Upcycled By-Product of the Meat and Leather Industries, in Its Product Portfolio
Cattle are not raised for collagen purposes. As such, we consider collagen peptides a by-product ingredient of the meat and leather industries, and work closely with a small number of direct suppliers to utilize this upcycled ingredient for its supplementation benefits.
As a subsidiary of Nestle Health Science, we understand our role and responsibility in constantly pushing to improve business practices across the globe.
Vital ProteinsTM is Dedicated to Sustainability Efforts
Not only have we activated sustainability-focused efforts within Vital ProteinsTM, we also do our due diligence when partnering with outside organizations, including suppliers. As we are not a vertically-integrated organization, we execute a very thorough vetting process with each one to ensure that their business practices align with our social and environmental expectations.
Vital ProteinsTM Offers Products People Can Trust
As a leading brand in the wellness space, we're committed to creating premium products that people can trust. Each formulation is consciously developed to be easy to use, and enjoyable to consume.
