I’d like to wish all of you a very happy and prosperous 2022. I’m a great believer in looking forwards rather than looking back and I am very enthusiastic about some of the projects we have in the pipeline for the coming year. The first (and largest) project we have is our continuing journey towards carbon neutrality, sustainability and recyclable packaging, which is moving apace.
We’ve undertaken an audit of every single one of our expenses to see what effects this expense has on our CO2 emissions. These data will be collated by c-free and an amount will be calculated that we invest in environmental projects in the UK and in our producer nations. We are aiming to have this financial aspect completed by the end of March.
Working with our new recyclable materials has required some additional investment and in early November I purchased two high capacity belt sealers that were designed to work with the new materials we are having to handle and to produce a strong seal to protect the valuable contents.
All our retail and wholesale bean and ground coffee bags in 250g, 500g and 1kg sizes are now made of LLDPE and are full recyclable, including the valve please put the empty packs into your recycling bin.
Looking forward to 2022 making it better than the last couple of years!! Thank you as always for your continued support.
