How can you be sure that your wild-caught fish were not tainted with plastics or heavy metals or captured with non-sustainable fishing methods? In practice, you can’t. Most producers can trace their products back to their processing plant. But only Vinh Wellness can trace our product all the way back to its raw ingredients. We breed and farm our own fish to use as source ingredients. This allows us to maintain total control over the entire production chain.
“The raw ingredients Vinh Wellness uses to make its collagen peptide and gelatin undergo more rigorous certification than most producers’ end products”
Collagen and gelatin derived from a single source in this manner has the dual advantages of uniformity and complete traceability. How else could one ensure that the source ingredients were produced safely, sustainably, and ethically? Our aquaculture facilities are certified by Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), Global Good Aquaculture Practices (GlobalGAP), AquaGAP, Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP), British Retail Consortium for Food Safety (BRC), International Food Standard, Version 4, Quality Management ISO 9001, Environmental Management ISO 14001 — and that’s even before we begin turning it into collagen peptides and gelatin. In fact, Vinh Wellness raw ingredients undergo more rigorous certification than most producers’ end products.
