Our Sustainability Story
Since 2019, we’ve been working with the UK’s finest restaurants and hotels, supplying them with our exceptional seasonal produce and helping them achieve their sustainability goals by contracting out food waste recycling services to create a closed loop food system.
We are pale green dot, a sustainably driven fresh food company working to close the food loop.
On 14th February 1990, as the Voyager 1 space probe prepared to leave our solar system, its cameras captured images of a pale blue dot some six billion kilometres away: Planet Earth.
We supply homes and restaurants across the South East with sustainably grown fresh produce and outsource a food waste and recycling service to our commercial partners.
We aim to be the first company in the UK to close the food loop and create a truly circular food economy.
The farms we aim to work with are managed using agroecological practices. This means they are farmed to benefit the soil, produce and environment. These farms use a combination of modern and traditional practices including companion cropping, no-dig beds, green manuring, crop rotations and composting.
By respecting the complexities of the natural environment, farmers skilfully balance the relationship between land health and local ecology – all with the production of supremely delicious and exceptional quality food.
We contract out food waste and recycling collection service to our commercial partners.
Our zero to landfill policy guarantees that all waste collected is utilised to produce energy, fertiliser or new products.
We provide full traceability on where all waste goes, how it is recycled and what is produced from the recycled materials.
