Our initiatives for this are:
- Minimising food waste during production - as a small batch operation with people at the centre of what we do we are able to minimise the waste we produce to virtually zero
- Minimising stock waste – as a batch production facility we are able to rotate stock easily and short-dated stock is something we avoid entirely
- Re-use - we aim to re-use packaging as much as possible, that means when you receive an order form us online it might be in a re-purposed box. We have also developed an entire sector of the business focussed on serving zero waste retailers who are selling to customers from bulk containers, we deliver to these customers either re-using packaging we receive our products in or through our circular delivery routes, see more here
- Packaging – all NPD and our core lines all use fully compostable packaging. This is an investment we made to be leaders in this area. Our outer packaging is cardboard and can be either recycled or will decompose by itself and out inner packs are manufactured from cellulose, a plant-based material. See more here
There will always be more we can do and as a business are constantly looking for ways to improve and reduce our carbon footprint, any ideas get in touch.
