As a food manufacturer, we are committed to sustainability and quality and we implement work practices to ensure that our plant is operating in an environmentally-friendly manner. We are also committed to supporting the local community and we are very conscious of caring for the wider community in which we operate. Corporate socially responsible events can make a big difference to our local communities.
As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility policy Simply, our food stocks manufacturer, took part in a Make a Difference Day for the local Youth Services. Our staff volunteered their time by assembling new office furniture which Simply has purchased to fit out the Youth Services new counselling office. The team also did some wonderful painting that really brightened the place up! The day was a great success and the offices looked fantastic! It was brilliant to get involved with one of the local youth organisations and we can’t wait for the next opportunity.
We embrace these types of initiatives because we believe hands-on support to local community’s benefits all of us. Whether it’s a day helping the local nursing home or planting up some local gardens our staff are always ready to get behind a good cause.
Environmental Work Practices
The Culinary Food Group continuously monitors processes and refines procedures, such as our waste management systems, to minimise the environmental impact. In practice this means investing in the latest technologies and bringing in the right expertise to optimise our approach. As a result of this commitment, we have received an Integrated Pollution, Prevention and Control Licence by the Environmental Protection Agency. The licence controls areas such emissions including waste, air, noise, storage as well as water consumption. All activities and processes must use the best available technology. Simply has made great progress in the area and were able to use a new evaporator process that resulted in up to 83% reduction in packaging when manufacturing food stocks.
The Culinary Food Group believe in the ideology set out by Origin Green that companies should work towards reducing their impact on the environment as well as supporting their local communities and preserving the excellent natural resources that we have at our disposal. We are proud to be a verified member of the Origin Green community. In 2009 we set out a number of objectives to focus on that cover areas such as:
- Social Responsibility
- Reduce Packaging
- Energy Consumption
We have successfully reduced our energy consumption levels in line with our targets. In 2013 were finalists in the Sustainable Energy Awards and in 2014 we went one better and were the Industry Category Winners. This was a fantastic achievement for the company and something we are extremely proud of.
