People, planet, profit – the foundation of Webber Naturals.
We strive to make a smaller environmental footprint by making changes that reduce waste and carbon emissions, conserve energy and water, and support local and global communities. We also pursue sustainability certification for our products so you can be sure of their quality.
We’re proud to share some of the ways that show our commitment to producing superior natural health products, while operating as good stewards of the Earth.
Products Rooted in the Best Raw Materials
Whether grown on our own farms or carefully sourced worldwide, we start with the best raw materials available.
Softgel Waste Not Wasted
We resell leftover softgel waste for non-food applications (e.g., to adhesive manufacturing industries). As a result, we diverted approximately 150 tons of waste from the landfill in one year alone.
Converting Manufacturing Waste
We convert organic manufacturing waste into CFIA–certified* animal feed and organic soil rather than incinerating it. We collect packaging waste and convert it into drink trays.

Global Community Donations
We have a long-standing tradition of donating products to medical teams of students, doctors, and nurses to take on their trips to administer aid in rural clinics and homes in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Nicaragua.
Webber Naturals Omega-3 contains only IVO™ certified fish oils. We’ve partnered with IVO to support marine diversification, regulated fishing, by-catch prevention, habitat protection, and pollution prevention.
Tackling Food Security
We are proud supporters of organizations that tackle the challenge of food security on a local and global level. In 2016, Quest Food Exchange recognized our company as their Most Valuable Partner for our commitment to providing dignified access to vitamins to individuals facing hardship in our local community.
Switching Paper to Reduce Emissions
We use treeless, agri-based sugar sheet copier paper made from bagasse residue of the sugar cane plant. By switching from 30% recycled content paper to sugar sheet, which has 0% tree content, we reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote the global preservation of forests and vital ecosystems.
Climate Smart Certified Business
We have partnered with Climate Smart to measure and reduce our annual Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2,710 tons of CO2e for the past four years.
