Sustainability

Minimising our impact on the environment by producing our meals in a sustainable manner is very important to us at Tillery Valley. We have been certified to the ISO14001:2004 environmental management standard since 2010 and have always set ourselves challenging targets to ensure that we continue to improve our environmental performance. We have introduced a range of environmental initiatives that all employees have embraced; these improvement programmes are integral to Tillery Valley's ethos and culture of continuous improvement

We now recycle over 85% of our waste, diverting over 1000 tonnes from landfill each year, and have formed strong relationships with the national charity FareShare. Through FareShare our surplus fit-for-consumption meals are redistributed among disadvantaged and needy communities all over the UK.

Tillery Valley was the first food manufacturing facility in Wales to gain Carbon Trust recognition and reduction programmes for electricity, gas and diesel ensure that we continue to reduce our carbon footprint. We have invested in the upgrade of our logistics fleet to reduce our carbon emissions.

Tillery Valley is committed to sourcing ingredients locally, wherever possible, and the development of strong relationships with our supply chain partners is key.

Tillery Valley takes a multi-faceted approach to ensuring that our business remains sustainable and minimising our environmental impact goes hand in hand with other  initiatives, such as:

-    Employment of modern apprentices which actively nurtures the development of local individuals

-    Support of community sports teams, both local to TVF and within other areas of the country where we conduct business

-    TVF supports the Prince’s Trust charity and in 2014 raised in excess of £7,500 through a variety of fundraising activities
      as well as offering work experience to over 20 people

-    TVF also supports Cwmtillery Lunch club by supplying food free of charge
