OUR SUSTAINABILITY MISSION
We have eliminated black plastic from our entire branded range. In doing so, we are diverting waste from landfill as black plastic is often hard to recycle.
Since February 2022, we have removed 110,000 black plastic pots from our Premier Jus line alone.
Our poly propylene plastic pots, lids and clear PET jars are 100% recyclable.

ELIMINATING BLACK PLASTIC
Our tasting cups, cutlery, plates, and carrier bags used at shows and demonstrations are either 100% compostable; bamboo, palm leaf, paper based, or starch alternatives, eliminating single use plastic.

Since 2020, we’ve prevented over 6000 plastic forks ending up in landfill alone.

In 2020, we launched our Premium Instant and Premium Frozen ranges in FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved cardboard boxes.

OUR RECIPES
We are working on ways and solutions to reduce our single use plastic further by looking for alternatives to items such as box tape and bubble wrap, and more.

We reconfigured and maximised the palletisation of our products to reduce the
number of pallets we send out, reducing our transportation emissions.
