Working with an understanding of nature and our planet’s limited resources, Nippi addresses sustainability issues throughout the whole chain of custody to produce all-natural and eco-friendly fish collagen peptides. We use both farmed and wild-caught fish, taking care to not endanger marine species and to minimize our environmental impact.

All-Natural and Eco-Friendly Products

With a strong focus on delivering market-leading technologies, we are equally passionate about working in harmony with the environment. Nippi extracts collagen peptides from fish scales and skin through a complex and controlled hydrolysis process that leaves no chemical residue. As a result, our bioactive and non-GMO sourcing is the basis for working with nature, while minimizing our environmental impact.

Wild-Caught Fish

The fish skin and scales used in the production of the Nippi Fish Collagen Peptide Wild Granular is a natural by-product of the seafood industry that would otherwise be discarded and lost.

Seafood companies create fish by-product (e.g. fish skin and scales) when the fish are prepared for human consumption. Production of marine-based food and bioactive ingredients from these by-products is growing in popularity as it helps reduce processing waste, thereby catering to ethical and environmental concerns. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, discards from the world’s fisheries in 2005 exceeded seven million tons, with only 50% of total catch being used for actual human consumption. Following an ocean-friendly fishing policy, Nippi uses species of fish that are not red-rated by the Blue Ocean Institute. Our collagen is extracted from wild-caught sustainable deep-sea fish.

Sustainable Aquaculture

Fish farm

To provide consistent, high-quality and environmentally friendly products, Nippi extracts fish collagen peptides for our Select and Standard grades using several farmed species. The fish are sourced from several countries, such as Thailand and Indonesia, and are raised conforming to quality standards for aquaculture and in environmentally sustainable production systems.

Nippi requires that our farmed fish partners adhere to stringent Nippi procurement standards and rigorous specification requirements to qualify as Nippi suppliers.
