Ethical and sustainable trading is a core value of our company.
We actively encourage our suppliers to adopt ethical practices that minimize environmental impact whilst delivering benefits in relation to their own operations and throughout the supply chains in which they operate, giving a fairer deal for farmers and sustainable communities.
Our partnership with all our suppliers works to achieve common goals, constantly striving to enhance our contribution to the environment.
Begins with the equipment we supply, ensuring the efficiency of components meets the latest energy rating standards. The new machines we supply all have programmable energy saving modes and take advantage of directional LED lighting.
We understand that our fleet of vehicles will impact negatively on the environment, we are therefore very aware of the importance of efficient route planning. Ensuring operatives understand the environmental consequences of their working day and plan to minimize any impact.
Sourcing products that carry the Fairtrade or Rain Forest Alliance certification where available is a very important consideration to our business. We also recognise how important the origin and tracability of products is to our customers.
The plastic packaging used within our own production unit is a corn starch based compostible carton that can be recycled. All packaging waste from the ingredients used in hot drinks machines is removed from clients premises for recycling. All machines supplied are designed for end of life dis-assembly and are disposed of in-line with WEEE directives
