Within our ever-evolving responsibility to support people and the planet, integrating sustainability into everyday business practise has never been more important.
In 2020, Essential Cuisine increased its focus on putting sustainability at the core of it’s business model, building a team to ensure that sustainability moves to being at the heart of everything.
The market-leading foodservice manufacturer strongly believes that sustainability is not limited to the management of waste or plastic use reduction, but bringing all areas of the business together to do better.
General Manager, Heather Wilde commented, “ We recognise that sustainability is business critical for all our partners in the foodservice industry. Sustainability needs to be at the heart of our business model and we are committed to Solina Group’s focus on people, planet, partners, performance and products. We continue to evolve the business to ensure we move to a position where sustainability is not a stand alone project, but something that we all buy into and is central in every decision making process. We recognise that this is a journey that will continue to evolve, but we are committed to making it happen."
"Changes we have made over the last two years include investment in the chefs of tomorrow through the Essential Skills Series, the elimination of black plastic, removal of single use plastics in our demonstration materials, reconfigurations to maximise palletisation to reduce transportation emissions, introducing single serve sauce sachets to address skills gap and minimise waste, as well as our increased focus on the use of local and seasonal produce in recipe applications and our charitable work.”
Essential Cuisine have launched a brand new area on their website, mapping out their sustainable journey, highlighting key facts, figures and milestones. You can view this page here.
