Environmental Considerations

Our vision is to be the leading supplier of nutritional products in Europe. This includes recognising that our activities affect the environment and committing to minimising adverse impacts across the business.

We aim to comply with all current and future environmental legislation, prevent pollution, involve employees and contractors in our environmental programmes, and incorporate appropriate environmental factors into business decisions. An emphasis on good purchasing and forecasting systems mean that most of our goods can be imported by sea, helping to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible.

Across our site, we recycle:

  • Paper
  • Plastics
  • Cardboard
  • Ink cartridges

All suitable kitchen and product waste is sent for anaerobic digestion, taking us closer towards sending 0% waste to landfill. 

In May 2015 we moved into new premises which were designed to be environmentally friendly by minimising the energy required to run the building. Key aspects include:

  • A 125kw solar panel system is situated on the roof of the building. The solar panels will supply approximately half of the building’s annual energy consumption, saving an estimated 55,370kgs of CO2 emissions annually. This equates to a saving of around 23,753 litres of petrol.
  • Natural lighting in the warehouse combined with energy-saving LED sensor-activated lighting reduces energy usage
