OUR ENVIRONMENTAL STRATEGY
All waste bread is given to local farmers as animal feed, none goes to landfill.
Other food waste is composted to be converted into gas for energy and fertiliser
70% of all non-food waste is recyclable
We use reusable or recyclable delivery trays for deliveries to our own shops and wholesale customers; which are returned to the bakery for cleaning or controlled recycling.
Our suppliers deliver their goods (whenever possible) in reusable or recyclable containers; i.e. milk churns, egg boxes, oil containers and flour sacks.
80% of all our packaging is recyclable or compostable.
Bakery has LED low energy lighting.
Surplus heat from our ovens used to heat the Bakery.
The ovens are 80% electric & 20% wood fired.
Delivery routes are carefully planned to minimize fuel consumption.
