Healthy Environment

From our sourcing practices to our facilities to our packaging, we’re working hard to limit our impact on the environment.

  • Ethical Sourcing

    So Nice soybeans are sourced from organic farms in Canada and the US that grow only non-GMO soybeans. Organic standards forbid genetically modified (GM) crops and foods. While research on GM crops is still inconclusive regarding specific health risks, it is our position at So Nice to use only non-GMO ingredients whenever possible. 

    In doing so, we can be sure we’re also not contributing to environmental concerns in other countries. In South America for instance, increased demand for soybeans is contributing to deforestation of Amazon rainforests. 

  • Efficient Facilities

    We’re proud to be the only soy producer to have manufacturing facilities in both Eastern and Western Canada. This helps reduce the impact shipping makes on our environment, while ensuring you receive the freshest product available.

    We’re constantly looking for ways to reduce the amount of waste created in the making of our organic beverages such as recycling all paper and many plastics. It’s our responsibility to minimize as much solid waste as we can. 

    Among our other sustainability initiatives, we have established a positive energy efficiency program. Working with BC Hydro, our So Nice Western facilities are audited annually to find any possible areas for energy reduction. It’s one more step towards running our plants as efficiently as possible.

  • Environmentally Friendly Packaging

    We’re constantly looking for ways to reduce the amount of waste created by making our products, and within the packaging itself. All of our packaging is recyclable, and all paper used comes from environmentally managed forests.

    We also choose suppliers that are taking initiatives to reduce their impact on the environment. For example, our non-refrigerated packaging supplier, Tetra Pak, has implemented the following sustainability measures:

    • Reduced paperboard weight by 18% while still maintaining the integrity of the packaging
    • Reduced plastic in the inner layer of their packages
    • Decreased aluminum thickness by 30% since the 1960s, using the thinnest foil possible with today’s technologies
