SUSTAINABILITY

Free Range Dairy
Foodspeed handled the exclusive London launch of Free Range Dairy Milk and Double Cream in 2016 under the Pasture Promise label - the only brand to give a clear assurance that milk comes from cows that enjoy the freedom to graze for at least six months of the year. This initiative supports traditional British dairy farms via a premium that helps sustain future milk supplies while helping caterers gain recognition for ethical and sustainable sourcing of milk. What’s more, our Free Range whole milk is not homogenised, combining a great creamy, natural taste with easy texturing and excellent foam stability.


SRA - Food Made Good
Our consistent drive to reduce the environmental impact of our business has been recognised by the Sustainable Restaurant Association. Foodspeed is an SRA listed supplier and indeed we were one of the first dairy suppliers to be approved by the association. The SRA now uses the brand Food Made Good for promoting sustainability to the end consumer and champions change towards a more sustainable future for the foodservice industry. Foodspeed was a finalist for the Food Made Good Sustainable Innovation Award in 2016.


Organic Credentials
We ensure that the dairy products and eggs we sell are produced to high environmental and animal welfare standards. Demand for organic products continues to rise and our organic dairy and egg product range has widened accordingly. Foodspeed is accredited by the Organic Food Federation so you can be sure that such products comply with organic standards and are fully traceable with certificates of conformity for every process from farm to kitchen. We are also members of the Organic Trade Board which promotes organic benefits to consumers and works with members, the press, government and other bodies to grow UK sales.


100% Carbon Neutral
Foodspeed has worked hard to reduce its carbon footprint by eliminating excess waste, while reducing energy consumption and unnecessary packaging. We have achieved 100% carbon neutral status across the business since 2010, offsetting emissions of carbon dioxide from all our operations, including vehicles, through high quality carbon reduction projects in developing countries. A recent example is a Certified Emission Reduction project in the Philippines – the first commercial wind power venture in the region. We continue to make advances through greater recycling and reuse, saving energy and limiting waste while our refrigerated vehicle fleet meets the lower emission targets of the Euro 6 standard.
