lots of visits to our suppliers
We make sure our suppliers are meeting our high ethical and environmental standards, by going to see them as often as we can.
waste not, want not
We like to recycle everything we can. Paper, packaging – if it can be reused, we’re up for it. And that includes aiming for 0% of our food waste going to landfill.
life’s a gas
Any food waste we have is sent to the Prince of Wales biogas plant, on the edge of Poundbury. It’s anaerobically digested to provide gas for 56,000 homes in summer and 4,000 in winter!
we binge on Brazil nuts
It’s one of the best ways to preserve the Amazon rainforest. Brazil nuts only grow well in a healthy, natural forest environment, so if demand for these nuts is up, the trees (and the bees which pollinate their flowers) will be protected.
