We're committed to the environment

We’re very lucky to live and work in an incredible place, so we want to make sure it’s every bit as amazing tomorrow as it is today. That’s why we’re passionate about the environment and how we can play our part in working sustainably and really ‘do our bit’. From power to packaging, we’ve put in a number of eco-friendly processes to lessen the impact we make on the environment…

Plastic-free packaging

The overuse of single use plastic and it’s impact on the environment has shocked the world. We’ve taken the decision that we’d like to be plastic-free and because of that, we’re incredibly proud to say that the bags we use in our packaging are no longer plastic but are made of a compostable film! Any cardboard we use is recyclable and accredited with an FSC certification (Forest Stewardship Council accredited).

Zero to Landfill

Recycling is something we can all easily do and can make a real impact on the environment. The general waste we produce is collected by a company who send zero to landfill. All of our food waste is collected and added to a local commercial anaerobic digester in order to provide renewable energy that can be fed into the national grid. Cardboard, plastic and even our printer cartridges and batteries are also recycled.

Sustainable and green energy

Just like many homeowners and businesses across the country, we’ve been using renewable energy to power our business and we’re proud to say that 100% of the electricity that goes into baking our tasty treats is now from green energy. The water supply we use is also private, helping us reduce our impact even further.

Reducing mileage and road miles

We also think it’s really important to support the local community that we’re fortunate to be based in and invest in the skills of those that live nearby. For that reason, and where possible, we always try to employ those living in the community and who don’t have to travel far to work each day. We've also taken the decision to reduce our deliveries to four days a week in order to reduce road miles.

Palm Oils and finding alternatives

Palm Oil came to many people’s attention when Iceland launched their Christmas campaign, ‘Say hello to ran-tan’. For us it’s been a focus for quite some time; we use sustainable palm oil with a RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) certificate where no alternative can be found (we always try to find them), and our main fat has changes to be palm oil free.
