At Fresca retail our approach to sustainability is based on the belief that protecting the environment and giving our customers great value for money by offering top quality food products go hand in hand.
Since we first opened our doors we have made great strides in terms of our own environmental performance that have directly helped us to not only lower our own operating costs but also provide lower prices for our customers without reducing the quality of the products we supply.
Over the last 10 years we have reduced energy use in our existing network of stores by over 40% and all our news stores are designed to be super energy efficient thereby reducing our energy bills at these stores by a further 50%.
We have also looked very carefully at where we source our products to ensure that not only do we only provide meat from sustainable farms but also use the minimum number of road miles when transporting goods to our stores. We have managed to reduce our number of food miles by 18 million over the last 10 years which is a very healthy reduction of our carbon emissions.
