Transformation of Raw Material
Clean, Dry, Safe
Our Initiative to ensure a safe working environment and reduce both product and water loss by working in a lean, effective way.
We aim to reduce water and electricity usage by 10% by 2025
In order to reduce our CO2 we minimise empty lorries by collecting raw materials on their way back from delivering to our customers
During our import season we have worked with a freight forwarder to reduce road miles by utilising ferry routes from Spain rather than driving the full distance to the channel, this routing emits less than half the CO2 than traditional routes from Spain.
At our Lichfield site we have restricted on site car parking and a limited number of cars allowed onto our Lichfield site. We offer a complimentary door to door minibus service to facilitate our employees’ journey to and from work to help reduce our gas emissions.
Food waste contributes significantly to deforestation and global warming - the more food wasted, the more food packaging wasted. We are working hard to reduce food waste, not only in our factories but also by educating our consumers.
As part of our commitment to reduce packaging we are looking at packaging alternatives that are either re-cyclable, bio-degradable or compostable. We are also looking at eliminating any unnecessary plastic use which has already reduced our usage by an estimated 12 tonnes per year.
We are working with the wider group on a project to reduce energy throughout the sites
Lighting is being changed to more energy efficient lighting.
Alternative power sources, for example Combined Heat and Power using gas turbines instead of grid electricity is considered where possible.
