Premier Foods scoops top industry environmental award

We're celebrating after being presented with the 'Efficiency Initiative of the Year' award at the UK National Recycling Awards together with our waste management service provider Biffa

Premier Foods, and our waste management service provider Biffa, are celebrating after being presented with the 'Efficiency Initiative of the Year' award at the prestigious UK National Recycling Awards ceremony on Tuesday evening. The award recognises the sweeping efficiency changes we have made to the management of our waste resources, across all our sites, as part of our goal to ensure 'sustainability in everything we do'. Procurement Manager Janet Smithson said, “Premier Foods is a very diverse food manufacturing company. With so many processes involved in producing our range of products, new opportunities to drive resource efficiency are emerging all the time and as they are identified we work with the Biffa integrated waste management team to achieve a sustainable solution.” Premier Foods has two company wide targets - zero waste to landfill and zero net spend on waste management. We have been able to identify and completely eliminate target waste streams, driving resource efficiency throughout our operations. By addressing the causes of waste arising, we have been able to introduce recyclable alternatives to supply chain and process packaging and have introduced line-side recycling to capture all recyclable waste at the point at which it arises, resulting in significant environmental and cost savings. Well done to everyone across all our sites who have helped to deliver the 'resource efficiency revolution' that has happened over the past 18 months, this award is recognition of all the fantastic work you've done - congratulations!
