We are winners!
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we have won one of the SME Northern Enterprise Awards for the second year running. Being announced ‘Best Sustainable Food Packaging Business 2021’ has been an absolute honour.
The past year has seen some very challenging times with supply chains and fluctuating order patterns putting huge demands on organisations. Adapting our working practices to meet the unique needs of a diverse client base has meant we can ensure clients are stocked and ready to go. Our services and quality are reflected by maintaining and developing long standard relationships with clients and helping them grow.
Andrew Parker, Commercial Director commented: ‘There has been a bounce back in demand in the UK food and hospitality as the economic recovery from Covid-19 takes place with the public spending more time in the UK than abroad. There has been a growing realisation that recyclability and the circular economy is taking more of a presence that compostability as the infrastructure to support this isn’t yet evolved enough’.
All our packaging is fully and widely recyclable and we recycle 100% of our production waste. We fully support a carbon offsetting programme by offsetting 10 tonnes of carbon per month by a way of planting local trees. We also are a partner in a pallet recycling programme and furthermore just received a certificate of carbon commitment which shows our dedication to reducing our carbon emissions. We aspire to be carbon net zero before 2030 and continue our sustainable journey by fully electrifying our fleet within the next 6 months.
The next 12 months will see us purchase another production factory to increase capacity. The development of the paper cup side of the business with the addition of new plant machinery and ongoing research into new more sustainable materials that can be used.
As a company this is amazing new for us and to our staff who have worked hard as we transition to a circular economy model. Lots still to do but this is significant step in our journey.
