Climate Positive Deliveries
We're Climate Positive!
That's right. Through our partnership with Ecologi, the Environmental Organisation, we help fund projects across the globe planting trees. In fact, for every order that is made, through them, we plant a tree.
We use a CO2 neutral courier business (DPD), and our vehicles are self charging hybrids. We also use solar power to generate electricity to help power our refrigeration units. Finally, we use packaging that's kinder to the planet too:
We are well-aware that home deliveries (especially that of fresh food) equate to realms of packaging, insulation and potential waste. We use recyclable boxes, food bags and insulation. The ice packs we use can either be frozen for re-use, or drained of their water and recycled. All are suitable for curbside recycling
Reducing Food Waste
Given the majority of our produce is fresh, some of the items we sell have a relatively short "use by" or "best before" date. All of our fresh produce is suitable for home freezing. The BBC recently reported that if everyone in the UK stopped wasting food at home for just one day, it would have the same impact on greenhouse gasses as planting half a million trees! We hope that the “freeze now, enjoy later” principle means you can enjoy our food days or weeks later, and not have to throw it away due to it being past its use by or best before date.
We have frozen alternatives to many of our meat and fish products. This is to clear out unbought stock that we have frozen in our commercial freezers. You will find the frozen options in the drop down menu on the product pages. We are offering these products at a reduced price meaning you can buy great quality ingredients as a discount!
