We are committed to reducing waste as far as possible, continually assessing the possibilities for waste reduction and for recycling.

 

Current activities are:

  • Our suppliers minimise packaging, commensurate with avoiding product damage and maintaining product cleanliness and safety.

  • Raw material packing is currently recycled. Cardboard and plastic being the key materials used.

  • All food waste is disposed of using recognised contractors and in conformance with legislation.

 

Packaging Material
