Foodspeed has a number of policies in place that govern how the company trades, sources products and manages the environmental impact of the business. These can be viewed via the links below:
We are committed to sourcing local products where possible while always offering choice to our clients. To this end we also purchase products and services from suppliers throughout Europe.
As a socially responsible company, we aim to ensure that our suppliers meet our ethical trading standards so that all products are produced under hygienic and safe working conditions by employees, themselves treated humanely.
We audit our suppliers, checking the origin and specification of all products, where possible ensuring they come from a sustainable source and meet industry-recognised quality assured standards.
Foodspeed is pleased to pursue a policy of social responsibility that extends to donations to selected charitable causes at home and abroad. These are some of the great charities we have supported. Foodspeed has directly donated over £80,000 over the past seven years.
