That’s why he developed it himself. By putting functional, real food ingredients first, Brendan began creating delicious plant-based products that met his needs as an athlete, and as a person – without ever compromising nutrition for convenience. Now, Vega has grown to include specialized sport nutrition, protein bars, shakes, and so much more.
INGREDIENTS WITH PURPOSE

multisource PLant-based protein
Plant-based protein from pea, alfalfa, hemp, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, golden chlorella, and sacha inchi. We’ve developed a complete multisource protein blend.

Essential fatty acids and fiber from organic golden flaxseed and organic chia seed powder.
PREMIUM GROWN COFFEEBERRY
Coffeeberry from premium grown Arabica coffee cherries, sourced from Fairtrade International & Rainforest Alliance certified farms.

WE CALL IT VEGATOPIA
We do things differently at Vega Headquarters. Our people are long-distance runners; cyclists; weightlifters; yogis; and everything in between. Employees receive incentives to bike or take transit to Vega HQ. Our office gym runs fitness classes, meditation, and run clubs led by employees. We’re home to a no-waste plant-based kitchen and smoothie bar that fuels our work with the power of plants. We are passionate and driven; our culture is confident and determined.
We are committed to bringing sustainable plant-based nutrition to the world, and that commitment starts at home. We live the values that make us Vega, every day.
