Our environment

At Bennett Opie, we are deeply committed to safeguarding the environment, and we are dedicated to taking meaningful steps in reducing our ecological impact. We take pride in our extensive efforts to minimise our carbon footprint.

Our production processes incorporate water recycling, ensuring that all water used in the cooling processes is recycled. Moreover, we prioritize recyclability, with 90% of our packaging, including both jars and lids, being recyclable. To further promote sustainability, we diligently recycle cardboard and other materials used throughout our production operations.

Our team consistently explores energy-saving opportunities, focusing on reducing heating and lighting consumption. Regular monitoring and progress evaluations allow us to stay on track towards our sustainability targets. When it comes to transportation we maximise loads to minimise emissions. Additionally, we place great emphasis on sourcing local ingredients where possible, thereby reducing our carbon footprint by minimising "food miles." Our dedication to environmental stewardship is ingrained in every aspect of our operations.
