Northamptonshire based, Farrington Oils, producer of Britain’s original ‘seed to bottle’ Mellow Yellow cold pressed rapeseed oil, has appointed fellow family-run local business, Cawleys, as its recycling and waste partner.
This is a fantastic development for both organisations and reiterates the superb solution Cawleys has in place to recover and recoup as much recyclate as possible from waste produced by local businesses.
With all eyes on reducing global warming, carbon emissions and plastic pollution, companies are working hard to enhance their environmental credentials and Farrington’s are no different. Farrington Oil’s Mellow Yellow rapeseed oil is grown to LEAF Marque standards, a system designed to promote environmentally responsible and sustainable farming. As such, it was extremely important that Farrington’s appointed a sustainable waste partner that could maximise its recycling rates.
Cawleys will now operate segregated waste collections for Farrington Oils with a focus on recycling all of the producer’s card and plastic waste through its Wellingborough Materials Recovery Facility where it will be sorted and segregated to ensure maximum recycling rates.
Commenting on the partnership, Duncan Farrington commented: “We were extremely impressed with Cawleys segregation, recycling and materials recovery facilities. This, along with their close proximity to our farm meant that our carbon footprint could be minimised much further than previously. Furthermore, their status as a third generation family business means that they can be truly transparent about their sustainable procedures and practices at every stage.”
Anna Cawley, Director of Customer Service at Cawleys, added: “We are delighted to have been chosen as Farrington’s waste and recycling partner. Mellow Yellow is a fantastic brand that has been produced locally to the highest standards. We have worked tirelessly to ensure our business model offers a truly sustainable waste management solution. We look forward to a long and happy relationship with Farrington Oils and developing many more innovative ways to help them exceed their environmental targets.”
