We hae meat may well be be one of the most sustainable meat manufacturers in the UK. Owned and managed by husband and wife team Alex and Carlyn Paton, the business has been on a committed drive to reduce their carbon and wider environmental footprint for many years. Meat is sourced locally from their own farm, where regenerative practices are being applied, and heat & power is provided from an on-site biomass plant.
Issues addressed in their Green Small Business action plan include: energy use, water use, renewables, packaging, meat sourcing, transportation and company administration.
“The Green Small Business process has been practical and helpful. The certification allows us to shout more loudly about all our efforts on sustainability.”
