Waste management

We divert 99.6 per cent of waste from our manufacturing sites away from landfill.  We continue to work closely with our waste management partners to ensure that all of our waste streams are processed through the most sustainable routes.

To avoid wasting edible food in our shops, we aim to give away unsold food to community groups and charities.  In the last year, we achieved our target of doubling food donations and have ambitious plans to grow this more in the years ahead.  Some of our shops have direct links with local organisations and we also partner with the Trussell Trust and FareShare to donate food to worthy causes.  We have now been working with FareShare for over a decade and supply eight of their regional distribution centres.
