At Neomega Nutritionals LLC, we are committed to sustainability all the way. Every decision we make from sourcing our oils to bottling, packaging and shipping is driven by a conscious effort for long term sustainability. As a food manufacturer, we play a significant role in either supporting or further undermining our fragile ecosystem. We make a conscious effort to minimize food waste. In ingredient sourcing, we strive to source sustainably grown and made products and work with vendors who make a similar for sustainability and keen sense of their impact on the environment.
We care about the environment by composting our food waste. We use COMPOSTNOW to compost our food waste. Food waste is one of the biggest sources of green house gases producing 4.4 billion tons of carbon dioxide yearly, greatly contributing to climate change.
Since we started composting in 2015, we composted
3,443 lbs of food waste and avoided releasing 448 lbs of methane at the land fill.
Global warming is the most important problem we have to solve in this century. We all have a role to play in this, from growers, how they grow the crops, to manufacturers, in how they make the food, process waste or distribute, all the way to consumers who have to make a conscious choice on what they buy.
We show our commitment for sustainability in the following ways:
We care about equatable profit sharing and making a positive impact in our communities. This is why we pledge to donate part of our profit to organizations that help protect the environment. We also participate in fundraising activities to help fight hunger right here in our communities.
We also care deeply about our business having a positive impacts from sourcing to the end user. We source our avocado oil from reliable and sustainable sources and test it for safety and purity.
