Sustainability Matters - Eco-Friendly Packaging

Reduce Plastic Pollution

Posted March 10th, 2023 by Colin Bailey

As a responsible and environmentally conscious company, here at Fruidel sustainability matters. We understand that our actions have an impact on the environment, and we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint in every way possible. Here are some of the ways our milk and fruit delivery services help promote sustainability.

Sustainability Matters – Local Sourcing

We work with local farmers to source our milk and produce, reducing the distance our products travel and the associated carbon emissions. By supporting local agriculture, we help promote the growth of local economies and reduce the reliance on imported goods.

Sustainability Matters – Eco-Friendly Packaging

We use eco-friendly packaging for our milk and fruit boxes, minimising the environmental impact of our products. Our milk is delivered in reusable glass bottles that are collected, washed, and reused, reducing waste and saving resources. Our fruit boxes are packed in compostable and recyclable packaging, reducing the amount of plastic waste generated.

Sustainability Matters – Efficient Delivery

We use efficient delivery methods to reduce our carbon footprint. Our delivery routes are optimised to minimise driving distances, and we use low-emission vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We also consolidate our deliveries to reduce the number of trips required, further reducing our carbon footprint.

Sustainability Matters – Reducing Food Waste

We take steps to minimise food waste in our operations. Our milk is delivered on a regular schedule, ensuring that we deliver only what is needed and reducing spoilage. We also work with local food banks and charities to donate surplus produce and milk, reducing waste and supporting the local community.

Sustainability Matters – Promoting Recycling

We promote recycling among our customers by encouraging them to return their glass milk bottles for reuse. We also encourage our customers to recycle the packaging after use. By promoting recycling, we help reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and promote the circular economy.

Conclusion

At Fruidel we take sustainability seriously, and we believe that every business has a responsibility to reduce its carbon footprint. By sourcing locally, using eco-friendly packaging, delivering efficiently, reducing food waste, and promoting recycling, we are doing our part to protect the environment and promote sustainability.
