Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsVital Choice Wild Seafood and Organics is a small web-based retail company that offers wild caught seafood and other organic health-promoting foods through mail-order sales. Fair Trade Organic chocolate bars and Organic Coconut Oil (FFL) are among the products offered in the catalogue. The company is dedicated to the health and well being of their customers through their selection of products. Although only a small portion of their products are under Fair Trade, the company is dedicated to ethical principals, as evidenced by their support of the Alaskan fishermen. Vital Choice also provides to their employees a work environment with flexible hours, safe working conditions, and a high level of social benefits. Through their Vital Green program, they offset the global warming generated from transportation by donating to renewable energy projects, and have recently replaced most of their styrofoam shipping containers with a new alternative to styrofoam, called "Thermopods."
