The Italian sunshine helps power the production lines in our kitchens, and any leftover
vegetables we have are used to make biofuel which also powers the lines.
Our packaging is made with recycled materials and it’s all recyclable. We’re always looking for
ways to reduce it further.
Every little jar is made in Italy and then arrives here in the UK by train, mainly. Our products
travel around this country on lorries using the cleanest, greenest technology we can find.
And all our company cars are electric and our office has power points for visitors to use too.

We’re working with Eaternity to truly understand the environmental footprint of our Pesto
sauce, which we’ll be sharing in 2021.
We’ll keep working on packaging reduction and hope to remove all single use plastic from our
products in the near future.
We all know we’ve got to reduce the amount of food we waste.
For all sorts of reasons.
But there’ll always be some, and so here are our thoughts to make sure we get the most out of
our food, financially and nutritionally.
All whilst treading lightly in the kitchen and on our planet, of course.
If you’re still curious, you’ll find more about our activities here.

The solar panels on the roof of our distribution warehouse in Asti have produced over 8,000,000 kWh
since 2010.
The average annual production of our two manufacturing sites Asti and Castello di Annone is
1,120,000 kWh.
Our organic waste is used to produce green energy. We make about 10,000 kWh a year.
All our packaging is recyclable and we are working with our packaging suppliers to use recycled
materials in all our packaging.
Our glass jars are 15% recycled glass, our metal caps are 15% recycled material and our Cardboard
trays are made with at least 40% recycled material.
We are trialling a pilot scheme to remove the shrink wrap from our trays to reduce our plastic
packaging.
Our Logistics teams in Italy and the UK are working hard to reduce road transport and increase sea
and rail transportation.
We use some hybrid vehicles (diesel/electric) and Euro 6 Step C & Step D engines with advanced
technology to distribute our products to supermarkets in the UK.
All trucks have the latest Predictive Cruise Controls so they select the correct gears and speed for the
environment, whilst getting the best mileage.
We also use train our drivers using Microlise scoring.
We will be using electric Tractor units in a trial throughout 2021 for urban deliveries.
We are working with https://eaternity.org/foodprint/ to announce the Carbon Footprint of our Classic
Basil Pesto in 2021.
