Our Sustainability Initiative

Commited to developing for the future

The food industry has come under scrutiny for its impact on the environment and the need to reduce waste and emissions. As a business we strive to take on sustainability measures to ensure that our products are produced in an eco-friendly and responsible manner as possible.

"Sustainability isn't just about doing less harm, it's about being committed to doing more good, and inspiring others to do the same along the way. We operate our company with the view that sustainability should be embedded in every business decision."

Reducing Waste

Predominantly Recyclable Packaging

At Houghton Hams we have taken steps to reduce waste by implementing recycling programs reducing landfill and successfully recycling 32 tonnes of waste material last year.

We are continuously engaging with our supplies to reduce transport and packaging into our factory by receiving product in large reusable containers saving the need for cardboard and plastic packaging.

Additionally, we have switched to eco-friendly packaging materials. All our trays are made from materials containing >30% recycled post-consumer waste, and we will continue to work with our suppliers to improve this further where possible.

As we make to order, this ensures limited wastage on product and packaging and any minimal stock that is produced is donated to charities such a Fareshare.
