We source our raw materials as close to our factory as possible. The game meat used in our products has naturally a much lower carbon footprint than mass produced meats. Reindeer meat has a CO² footprint of only 1.5kg/kg of meat while beef has 13.2kg of CO² per kg of meat¹. This means that consuming wild meat such as reindeer is an environmentally friendly food option.
Our logistics provider Bring who ships the raw material uses renewable diesel and has been awarded for its sustainability efforts. They aim to use only renewable sources of energy by 2025. One of our customer logistics companies – Omniva was awarded with Estonian Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility Quality Label in 2015.
Our producer controls the quality of the raw materials when they arrive at the factory. Their production facility is also ISO 22000 certified. They provide good working conditions for their employees and are flexible with their employees’ working schedules.
We at Renjer have consensus based decision making and flexible working hours. We take the personal life of our employees seriously and do not expect our employees to work in the evening or during the weekend. We thrive for a positive working atmosphere and have a light and spacious office.
Game meat is healthy. Wild game is lean meat being low in fat and naturally high in protein. Reindeer meat has been analysed in laboratories and analysis has shown that it contains high amounts of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. 100 g of reindeer meat contains the recommended daily dosage of Omega-3 and Omega-6. Additionally the natural diet of the reindeer was found to lead to high amounts of vitamin B12, selenium, zinc and iron in the meat.².
We try to be as transparent as possible by revealing our operations and supply chain to you. By doing so we let you make your own decision about the environmental, societal and economic impact our company makes. We believe that as a responsible company we are obliged to provide you with information about our production, meat supply and health effects of our products.
