Sustainability among suppliers and customers
97% of our raw materials are from sustainable sources, with 70-72% from within the UK. As much as possible is sourced from local farms.
Reduction of packaging
We aim to use less shrink wrap and have moved from 3-ply to 2-ply paper bags so less materials are wasted and the bags are easier to pack, meaning the packing machines use less power.
Deliveries and collections
All goods are transported at start times as early as 4am to avoid congestion, about 85% of goods are transported on back load consignment and all goods transported to Scotland go by train to save fuel.
Waste and re-use of materials
SPILLERS have sought to “reduce, recycle and rethink” their waste. Examples include selling on by-products of our raw materials we cannot use, paper, aluminium cans, lamps, transport packaging, waste plastic wrap, oily rags and scrap metal are all recycled.
