Modern poultry production is one of the most sustainable sources of meat, and our aim is to keep our environmental footprint to a minimum.
We do this in a number of ways:
Whether it’s a permitted farm, our largest processing site or anything in-between, we stay on top of regulations and manage our business efficiently, effectively and with great care. We operate to ISO50001 and ISO14001 standards for energy and environmental management, providing the farmework to say in close control of our wider impact.
When it comes to our environmental impact, reducing our carbon footprint is a priority. That's why we've committed to ambitious Science-based targets for carbon emission reduction, which we'll achieve through steady reductions in our absolute carbon footprint
Energy management is at the heart of our sustainability strategy. It's a source of carbon emissions and a significant cost - so using less is good for the planet and our bottom line. We follow ISO 50001 as a framework for good practice and, through continual improvement across our operations, have consistnely improved our energy efficiency since 2019.
Raw poultry needs to be packaged in a way that promotes food safety, but not at the expense of the environment. WE've worked hard to successfully reduce the amount of plastic we need in our packaging, using more recycled content where we can and making sure that we're increasing the amount that consumers can recycle at home.
Our aim is to find a home for everything, whether it’s recyclable material, animal droppings or inedible parts of a bird. We take pride in avoiding waste wherever we can and always endeavour to do more.
Whether it's the purchase of soya that's certified as deforestation and conversion free, or the work we're doing to address the impact of our supply chain on the health of the River Wye, we're working hard to make sure that our products are sustainable as well as affordable.
