At Vital Proteins®, 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.  Check out our current achievements and future commitments.
We are Committed to Responsibly-Sourced Collagen Peptides
We’re committed to sourcing high-quality in line with our responsible sourcing standards. We continue to work toward the achievement of positive change in our supply chain. That’s why we’re spearheading a collaboration with our direct suppliers to ensure their business practices are aligned with that goal.
what we’re doing
We will engage our direct suppliers of collagen with the objective to:
  • Redirect their sourcing to alternative regions to avoid the Amazon Area.
  • Reinforce the respect of the land rights of Indigenous communities associated with their sourcing through verification from independent third parties.
  • Commit to a deforestation-free primary supply chain by 2025.
  • Provide us with regular reports on their social and environmental business practices.
  • Develop enhanced traceability programs for the raw materials we source from them.
  • Follow-up on their reforestation initiatives in collaboration with local authorities and NGOs.
We remain focused on engaging our suppliers to continuously improve their sustainability practices across our primary supply chain.
we use Collagen Peptides, an Upcycled By-Product of the Meat Industry, in our Product Portfolio
Cattle are not raised for collagen purposes. Rather, our suppliers play a key role in collecting animal byproducts, like skins and hides, and repurposing them into many valuable products,  including collagen peptides. Instead of having this ingredient be discarded, we proudly use it across our product portfolio for its supplementation benefits.
We are removing 25M Plastic Scoops from Circulation
As an important initial step to reduce our plastic footprint, we aim to be 100% scoopless by the end of 2023. For context, this small action will remove more than 25 million plastic scoops out of circulation this year alone amounting to 250K+ pounds annually. And this is just the start; our team is actively working to further reduce plastic usage in our packaging, operations, office environment, and more. 
We partner with like-minded organizations
