Environmental policy

At Little Yum Factory we recognise that our operations have an effect on the environment and we wish to minimise the potentially harmful effects of such activity wherever and whenever possible. We also recognise that good environmental management must be an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy.

Our Sustainability Policy is based upon the following principles:

  • To comply with, and exceed where practicable, all applicable legislation, regulations and codes of practice.

  • To support bio diversity by creating carbon offset through planting trees and donating towards plastic free oceans.

  • To recognise nature has a true value and to be respectful and diligent towards it.

  • To integrate sustainability considerations into all our business decisions.

  • To ensure that all staff are fully aware of the Sustainability Policy and are dedicated to implementing and improving it.

  • To reduce food waste for a more sustainable agriculture system that is chemical free.

  • To minimise the impact on sustainability of all office and transportation activities.

  • To make clients and suppliers aware of our Sustainability Policy, and encourage them to adopt sound sustainable management practices. To review, annually report, and to continually strive to improve our sustainability performance.

Our policy is to meet or exceed all environmental regulations, laws and codes of practice. We are committed to the prevention of pollution and to minimising the impact of our operations on the environment. This environmental policy is the company’s statement of environmental goals which outline our commitment to continual environmental improvement.

 

Energy use

We will use environmentally safe and sustainable energy sources to meet our needs whenever possible and turn off equipment when not in use. We cook with LPG which has a smaller carbon foot print than electricity.

 

Resources

We will improve our environmental performance by conserving food, energy, water, wood, paper and other resources, particularly those which are scarce or non-renewable, though efficient use and careful planning, while still providing a safe and comfortable working environment.

 

Products

We will consider the environmental impacts of our products at all stages of their life cycle from design to manufacturing, customer use and disposal. We use 'home compost' starch based packaging that is ocean friendly as well as producing affordable food as around 40% is lost to the world every year (2020).

 

Recycling

We will promote recycling and use of recycled and refurbished products and materials where such alternatives are economical and suitable, while reducing consumption of materials wherever possible.

 

Waste Disposal

We will minimise waste, especially hazardous waste, in all our operations and product development and will dispose of all waste though safe and responsible methods.

 

We are registered with the Environment Agency a lower tier waste carrier.

 

Transportation

All of our vehicles along with coordinating efficient route planning will seek to reduce fuel consumption and lower exhaust emissions.

 

Training

We include environmental issues in all company training programs and encourage the implementation by all company staff of sound environmental practices.
