Allfresh’s Commitment to Environment Stewardship

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we offer an Environment Consultancy to all our customers. We provide you with a list of products, highlighting those with the least air miles, allowing you to make informed decisions when planning your menus throughout the year. Together, we can make a difference and create a brighter, more sustainable future.


Food Waste & Plastic Reduction

We work closely with our growers and suppliers to minimize packaging and eliminate single-use plastics. For the past two years, we have avoided using plastic for mixed peppers, herbs, and cucumbers. Every piece of plastic we don't use is a step towards a cleaner planet. We also prioritize redirecting our produce to consumption and donate any leftover produce to local charities and farmers for pig feed. To further reduce waste, we implement a recycling system for timber, cardboard, and plastic, and our office staff shreds all paper waste for recycling.

Managing Energy

Supporting local growers is a key part of our sustainability strategy. By sourcing locally, we reduce food miles, support our local economy, and provide you with the freshest produce possible. We're proud to have invested in solar energy options and are actively exploring ways to generate our own electricity in the future. To promote energy conservation, we implement energy-efficient practices throughout our business premises and encourage our staff to adopt sustainable behaviors.

Supporting Local

Supporting our local community is at the heart of our business. We prioritize buying from local growers whenever possible, reducing travel time for our fresh produce. This not only helps to build a stronger, more resilient community but also minimizes our environmental impact. We're committed to supporting Irish suppliers and sourcing from Europe only when certain products are not available locally.

Carbon Reduction

We're taking active steps towards reducing our carbon footprint. As part of our commitment, we have converted our sales fleet to include one electric vehicle and carefully manage our delivery routes to ensure mileage is essential. We're also proud to use AdBlue in all our delivery vehicles to reduce emissions. While we continue to explore and implement further measures, we recognize that every small step we take contributes to a clear and healthier planet.

Water Conservation

Water conservation is a priority for us. We have implemented a rainwater harvesting system which collects rainwater to clean our delivery trucks, acknowledging that every drop counts. We're constantly exploring new ways to reduce water usage, including implementing water-efficient practices and investigating new technologies.
