Is your packaging recyclable?
We are working on lots of areas to minimise our impact on the environment, and that includes our packaging. All our orders are packed in recycled cardboard boxes, which are fully recyclable. Our small pack spice and herb range is also packed in home-compostable packaging. The nature of our ‘for chef’ range, means many of our products are packed in no-frills packaging (it’s all about the high-quality ingredients inside!), for example, we only use single wrap plastic on our grains and pulses, granola ranges and bulk herbs and spices ranges (which reduces the plastic weight). For all other products, please refer to the packaging for details.
What does it mean when you say you’re a Certified B Corporation?
There is a new way of doing business, where value is not just measured financially but also measured on the positive effect we have on the world around us. Certified B Corporations (or B Corps) are businesses that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance and demonstrate this impact in four ways:
- The positive impact its operations have to the environment
- How it treats and looks after its people and suppliers
- Its positive effect on the communities in which they operate
- Its governance and ethical approach to doing business
B Corps have their impact independently benchmarked and the results are transparently published online. Our scores are then audited every three years and changes to our scores published for all to see. You can see our impact scores here.
We believe the future of food is plant-based, which uses fewer natural resources and creates much less greenhouse gas. This belief, along with the open and inclusive way we work with our people and suppliers, is one of the reasons we’ve been made a B Corp.
It means we join a growing number of like-minded companies across the globe who believe in the power of business to do good things.
