We’re continually looking for ways to reduce our environmental footprint.
In March 2016, Premier Foods was announced as one of the principal signatories of the Courtauld Commitment 2025, an ambitious ten year voluntary commitment that brings together organisations across the food and grocery sector to make food and drink production and consumption more sustainable.
A long with the other signatories from the retailer, food manufacturing, hospitality and Local Authority sectors, we collectively committed to the following three goals, calculated as a relative reduction per head of population:
• 20% reduction in food & drink waste arising in the UK;
• 20% reduction in the greenhouse gas intensity of food & drink consumed in the UK; and
• A reduction in impact associated with water use in the supply chain.
Building on the progress we’ve made through our commitment to previous Courtauld agreements, we have committed to work with the Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP) and other signatories to develop best practice, implement change and report annually against four key areas:
1) finding innovative ways to make best use of the wastes and surpluses;
2) optimising the whole supply chain to produce more with less;
3) embedding new criteria into design, buying and sourcing; and
4) influencing consumption behaviours and reducing waste.
You'll find one of our much loved brands in 96% of British households.
