Long-term water reduction
As one of the largest food producers in the UK, we have been helping conserve water across our operations.
Our Milton Keynes site has been running a long-term water reduction project, which has reduced water intensity from 3.66 to 3.08 cubic metres per tonne of product produced year on year. That’s 26% per tonne of product.
We have removed cooling towers from the site and installed sub-metering to enable targeted reduction plans to be implemented.
As part of our Second Nature initiative we signed The Courtauld Commitment 2030, an agreement pledging that we and others will help reduce the industry's food waste by 50% and ensure 50% of fresh food is sourced from areas with sustainable water by 2030.
