Certification story

Foodspeed, supplier of fresh milk, dairy, egg and ingredient products to the hotel, restaurant and catering sectors, has achieved Planet Mark certification.

Over the next year, the company will continue to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Foodspeed has a number of policies in place that govern how the company trades, sources products and manages the environmental impact of the business. Foodspeed is committed to sourcing local products where possible while always offering choices to its clients. The company also aims to ensure that all of its suppliers meet its ethical trading standards.

Steve Malkin
Founder and CEO
Planet Mark
“I am delighted that Foodspeed has joined the Planet Mark community. Measuring and committing to reducing one’s footprint is an important first step in the journey, but it must be backed by continued action. Foodspeed already takes steps to ensure the ethical quality of its products, so incorporating environmental measures into its business processes is a natural next step. I’m proud to be able to assist Foodspeed on their journey, and look forward to continued work with the team in the future.”

Through Planet Mark, Foodpseed has protected endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

The food industry is under the spotlight of environmental scrutiny. From the diets we eat to the sources of our food, ethical and environmental responsibility in the industry is a permanent fixture on the agenda. All aspects of the food industry must take action, for both the planet and for the health of their business. Whole supply chains must be examined to identify the ways food production can be improved from an ethical and environmental standpoint. 

  

Future targets

Reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year

To recertify next year Foodspeed must reduce emissions by 2.5%.

Aim to reduce carbon emissions by 5% each year

A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
