KP Snacks’ takes prestigious Platinum Award for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management
KP Snacks has been announced as the winner of the Zero Waste Platinum Award at last week’s (May 1 2014) Awards for Excellence in Waste Management and Recycling.
We achieved zero waste to landfill across all eight KP Snacks sites in the UK in 2012 – a key component being our strategy to boost understanding with site teams of how waste can be prevented. Workshops, training sessions and poster campaigns have helped to maintain focus on waste initiatives, whilst we have also worked with suppliers to reduce secondary packaging and achieve major reductions in food waste.
Mark Thorpe, Managing Director of Operations at KP says, “We are absolutely delighted that our efforts have been recognised with this Award. Corporate Social Responsibility is a major pillar of our business vision and strategy and keeping waste reduction front of mind with our colleagues helps us deliver that vision. It also generates significant cost savings that contribute to the long-term success of KP Snacks. Our pursuit of reduced waste at every level of our business continues!”
