We are committed to increasing the proportion of goods, products and services from local suppliers. This is extremely important to us in:
- Minimising CO2 emissions.
- Promoting healthy and sustainable local communities and economies.
- Driving an improved approach to supplier selection within our industry and beyond.
Currently, we source approximately 73% of all materials from suppliers who are based within a 50-mile radius, the rest are all located within the UK.
When it comes to the supply chain of our suppliers, we are committed to improving visibility and, wherever possible, fresh ingredients are sourced within the UK. If seasonality doesn't allow this, they are exclusively sourced within Europe and never air-freighted. For dry ingredients sourced further afield, again, we hold a 100% non-air-freight policy.
Our suppliers are an extension of allplants and any selected to work with us have first gone through careful checks to ensure their standard of ethics, sustainability and social responsibility are aligned with our own.
