Our Eco-Friendly Manufacturing Site

When it comes to sustainability we have invested heavily into our manufacturing site:

  • From keeping our staff charged through our 8 electrical charging spots for staff to  charge their cars all free of charge
  • To harnessing our solar energy power from the sun through a substantial number of solar panels that have been fitted to our roof and allow us to work off grid.

Our site is also 100% Vegan with no compromise.

Sourcing Ethical Ingredients

It’s no secret that plant based products are more sustainable and have less impact on the planet than foods containing animal products. As the manufacturer, we are always looking for improvements that can be made, whether that be through ensuring ethically sourced ingredients or finding logistical improvements that can be made at point of delivery.

Our Packaging is Sustainable

All the packaging we have used is considered and carefully chosen to ensure our products are protected and keep them tasting delicious. Packaging waste has a significant impact on our planet and whilst our packaging accounts for only a small part of our carbon footprint, we like to be completely transparent, sharing with you the packaging we have used and why.

We work hard to ensure that we’re always doing our bit for the planet, so our packaging being as environmentally friendly as possible is really important to us.

Eco- Friendly Bar Wrappers

We use OPP plastic on our bars to ensure the best protection. This plastic creates a protective layer between the bars and the outside world, ensuring light and bacteria don’t affect the product quality, making it the perfect option for keeping the bars fresh as fresh as possible. This packaging can be recycled with plastic bags and other soft plastics at local collection points, such as larger supermarkets.

Cruelty Free Collagen

Collagen stands as the predominant protein in the body, playing a major role in many structures of the body including bones, skin, muscles, and tendons. Desirable for its multitude of benefits, animal collagen is renowned for elevating skin density, elasticity, texture and reducing wrinkles and pores, all while enhancing hydration and radiance. Traditionally, the extraction of collagen relies on deceased animals, typically livestock, to harness its beneficial properties for various applications. This fundamental process involves cooking cartilaginous animal materials such as bones, connective tissues and skin. Once consumed the collagen is broken down into amino acids before being absorbed by the body.

What if we told you there was a way to reap the benefits of animal collagen without involving animals?

Vegan collagen replicates the amino acid structure of human type 1 collagen by incorporating the essential vitamins and amino acids. This formulation provides your body with the necessary ingredients to naturally stimulate collagen production, rather than having to break them down from animal products. Each gram of vegan collagen is equal to 4g animal collagen, making a vegan collagen blend notably more robust than its counterpart.

By using plant-based ingredients rich in the correct elements, you can cut out the middleman and support the body to create its own healthy levels of collagen.
