Sustainability

Green Wholesaler of the year 2017

A family run business with a green heart.

 

Thompsons Food Service has taken a very strategic and measured approach to our companies sustainability. As a company we are committed to minimise the effect our operations have on the environment.

 

Key points of our Sustainability Strategy:

  • Minimise waste by regularly evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst our customers and suppliers.
  • Source and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution.
  • Reduce our environmental impact.

 

Current measures in place in our Green Strategy:

  • Cardboard, Metals, Used Cooking Oil and Waste Building materials are all separated and then recycled.
  •  We have established a recycling yard dedicated to recycling all the materials above. We actively recover used Cardboard and Cooking Oils from our customers.
  • Local companies are used to source supplies and produce wherever possible. Packaging of all on-site produce is kept to the absolute minimum.
  • We have 200 solar panels (100kw) installed on-site, producing on average 85,000kw of energy each year, this dramatically helps reduce our companies energy usage and helps reduce the companies carbon footprint.
  • All of the on-site freezers have been upgraded to incorporate the latest energy saving technology.

 

Future Aim's of our Green Strategy:

  • Continue to install LED lighting and movement sensors across the site.
  • Aim to decrease our waste to Landfill on a yearly basis.
  • Continue to support our customers in reducing waste and promote sustainability.
