Fruit Baskets and Boxes - Good for you. Good for the Planet
We aim to leave this planet in a better place than we found it. We are committed to operating our business in Scotland in the most sustainable manner possible whilst ensuring the sustainability and livelihoods of the people and business that supply us.
Minimal Fruit Miles
As much of our fruit as possible is sourced with as minimal food miles as possible. Our delivery routes in Scotland are very efficient in order to ensure that food miles are kept to a minimum. We believe that the net carbon result of our logistics is less than the equivalent number of people making a journey to the shops to purchase fruit.
We rotate and re-use our fruit crates. Our fruit boxes are delivered in an attractive re-usable wooden crate. Our crates are hand made in Bristol and are manufactured from reclaimed wood. Each week, or delivery we pick this up and swap it with a full one, bursting with fruit. Alternatively, we can deliver in an aesthetically pleasing fully recyclable cardboard box printed with environmentally friendly inks.
We minimise the use of plastic to an absolute minimum and is only used when obsoletely necessary for product protection.
All our our customer packaging can be readily recycled. When we buy our fresh fruit, it arrives packaged in cardboard boxes on pallets wrapped in shrink wrap. We recycle all cardboard and plastic waste, meaning minimal waste to landfills
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
We thought long and hard about supporting good initiatives at home and abroad. In the end we decided you should decide so periodically we hold a vote with all our customers and whatever the winning charity is at home or abroad we support.
