Why Soopa Chews are Vegan
Soopa chews don't contain any meat or animal products and the company only sells plant based products at this time. They describe themselves as being "Vegan Friendly" on their website. In contradiction they also say that they "do not advocate" dogs be on a Vegan diet on their website too.
Soopa promote animal adoption on their website and donate chews to rescue charities.
Why Soopa Chews are Eco
Soopa are made only from plants, which is a great way to reduce your dog's carbon paw print.
Some other Soopa products are made in Ireland, however, the raw chews range are made in Vietnam where the ingredients are grown. Coconut, papaya and sweet potato grow best in warmer climates so need to be shipped to the UK.
In the case of Soopa they are dried before they are shipped, saving weight and space on the boats compared to shipping fresh ingredients.
They are shipped by boat 99.9% of the time, according to Soopa.
Additionally, the ingredients are gown on small, family-run farms rather than large intensive farms. All farms have been visited in person by Soopa.
Why Soopa Chews are Fairly Traded
The raw Soopa chews are manufactured in Vietnam where the ingredients are grown. The farms are all small and family owned and have been visited in person by the Soopa CEO to check the welfare standards. They are processed in a human-grade food facility all the way to completion with the final Sooper packaging. Because the factory is human grade there are no harmful chemicals used, safer for your pet and the factory employees.
The practice of processing and packaging the product in the country of origin is, in our view, generally more ethical. It means extra value, leading to money, jobs and skills, is added in the local community where the raw ingredients are grown. This is better than that usual process of buying farm produce cheaply from poorer counties and adding all the extra value elsewhere.
It is often also more eco-friendly, because it is more economical to ship a finished product than raw ingredients - especially if it allows them to be shipped by boat.
