Harlech Foodservice

Sustainability

Harlech Foodservice is committed to promoting sustainability. Concern for the environment and promoting a broader sustainability agenda is integral to our professional activities and the management of the organisation. We aim to follow and to promote good sustainability practice, to reduce the environmental impacts of all our activities and to help our customers and suppliers to do the same.

  • We are embracing digital marketing to reduce our print.
  • We reuse or recycle office waste, including paper, computer supplies and redundant equipment and have setup recycling bins across the building.
  • We have reduced the energy consumption of office equipment by purchasing energy efficient equipment.
  • We try to minimise our use of paper and other office consumables, for example by double-siding all paper used, and identifying opportunities to reduce waste. Through this we have reduced our overall print by 50%.
  • In 2015 we installed solar panels on the roof of our main depot as well as investment in energy reading and saving schemes.
  • We donate short dated products to the local food banks to minimise as much food waste as possible.
  • We have set up clothing bank donation baskets in our depot.
  • We stock a wide range of fair-trade and eco friendly products.
  • We supply water machines with reusable water bottles for all staff and visitors at our depot.
  • We support many charity events in the area in excess of £30,000 per year.
  • Our chosen charity for 2018/19 was ‘Ty Gobaith’ and we raised £3,071 through numerous events.
  • Our chosen charity for 2020 is ‘Action For Children.’
  • In 2018 Harlech donated £10,000 start-up funding towards North Wales Tourism Hospitality Academy which was to help with training in the hospitality sector ensuring the future of next generation in the industry.
