About the brand
At Vega, we don’t just believe in surviving. We believe in thriving. In growing stronger together. And getting every day off to the best start possible. In putting your best dance shoe, running spike or bare foot forward. In small steps becoming giant leaps. In mankind being kind. For a world that can truly thrive.
At Vega, we've been plant-based from day one. For us, it’s nothing new or fashionable, it’s just what we’ve always believed in. We offer a premium range of nutritious, vegan and protein-packed powders that can be added to smoothies, shakes and bakes. They’re full of the things your body needs, and nothing it doesn’t. So you can lead the clean* and active lifestyle you love without skipping a vitamin, a mineral or a beat.
But what do we mean by clean?
Clean, ironically, has become a bit of a dirty word. To us, though, it’s super simple. Clean is our way of describing the products we make, each of which are vegan and vegetarian as well as non-GMO, contain no dairy ingredients and are gluten free. So as far as we’re concerned, clean is all good.
The real deal
We’re big believers in getting nutrition straight from the natural source. Vega was created as a quick, convenient way to get protein, vitamins and minerals, from real fruit and vegetable ingredients, that you might not otherwise manage. How do we make our products? Well we keep every process we use as simple as possible, just like roasting a potato, pressing an olive, or squeezing a lemon.
Vega Essentials - Nutrients to thrive
Between buses, babies, bars and bills, adulting can sometimes be a bit much. And we know that a balanced, nutritious diet can be one of the first things to fall by the wayside when you’re busy. But Vega Essentials is full of vitamins and minerals straight from the fruit and vegetables it contains — nothing synthetic, nothing nasty, just real food from apple and acerola to strawberry and spinach. And a simple scoop in your porridge, shake or snack can give you the head start you need, so you can thrive every hour of every hectic day.
Clean* Protein - Strength to thrive
Strong, supple, and pretty darn useful, our bodies are amazing. But after a workout, they need to refuel. So we created Vega Clean* Protein, a simple but complete source of the protein your body needs once you’ve put it through its paces. With its complete amino acid profile, including your BCAAs, it supports the development of lean muscle all from a plant-based source. And because it harnesses the power of plants, it’s smart as well as strong.**
Vega Clean* Protein gives you the strength to thrive. Here’s how:
Low in sugars and high in protein (25g of complete, multisource protein).
A complete amino acid profile with 4g of BCAAs.
Protein-digesting enzyme, sourced from pineapple.
*At Vega, clean means gluten-free, non-dairy ingredients, suitable for vegetarians and vegans, non-GMO.
** Vega Clean* Protein and Vega Essentials are high in protein. Protein helps to build and maintain muscle. Enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.
What Sustainability Means to Vega
At Vega, we want to change the world. And changing the world starts with us. Our passion for plant-based nutrition is as much about empowering a healthy lifestyle as it is about supporting the health of our planet. But sustainability isn’t just about what goes into our products—sustainability must be part of everything we do. We want to be a company that leaves a net-zero carbon footprint. Come and join us on our Journey to Zero.
Journey to Zero
It’s one thing to say you want to be a company that leaves a net-zero carbon footprint. It’s quite another to take real actions toward that goal. Journey to Zero is Vega’s name for our process of taking actions and being accountable to this goal. You can’t improve what you don’t measure. And because we mean business when it comes to the planet, we treat our carbon footprint as a real indicator of our performance. We started with a complete corporate environmental sustainability audit and used the results to create Vega’s Sustainability Action Plan.
Every small change we make is a step on our Journey to Zero—and we take each of them so seriously that we’ve woven this process of making steps on this journey through the fabric of everything we do. Our ingredients, our packaging, our office, our suppliers—each of these represents an opportunity to innovate, improve, and bring us closer to our goal.
Our passion for clean*, plant-based nutrition that’s good for you and fuels your healthy, active lifestyle isn’t the only reason Vega products are exclusively plant-based—it’s also a reflection of our commitment to the planet.
What you eat can make a bigger impact on the planet than any other choice you make.
Reducing your personal carbon footprint involves a whole lot more than just how big a car you drive on your morning commute. In fact, what you eat can make a bigger impact on the planet than any other choice you make.
Whilst using reusable bags, recycling and walking more are now almost (wonderfully) cliché, not everyone realises the impact that diet has on the planet. Worldwide, livestock is one of the largest contributors to environmental problems, due to deforestation, desertification, overuse of freshwater, inefficient use of energy, diverting food for use as feed and emission of greenhouse gases. 1
Plant-based proteins in general require less arable land, water and fossil fuels than their animal-based counterparts. Conservative estimates indicate that animal proteins can require up to 6 times as much land, 26 times as much water, and 2.5 times the fossil fuels as plant-based proteins. 2
Whole, plant-based foods provide far greater nutrition relative to their real production cost from seed-to-plate when compared to processed, non-plant-based options. Or, in the words of our formulator, Brendan Brazier, they have a significantly lower nutrient-to-resource and nutrient-to-emissions ratio. Simply put, swapping out some animal protein staples for plant-based beans, nuts, seeds and whole grains can have a huge impact on your carbon footprint.
Your carbon footprint shrinks with every plant-based meal you choose.
Reducing your impact on the planet is simple—just start with one plant-based meal a day. Whether you’re dipping your toe into the Meatless Monday routine, or you’re a card-carrying raw vegan localvore, every plant-based meal you choose makes a dent.
