Florette, part of Agrial Fresh Produce UK, has been awarded a prestigious sustainability accreditation recognising our on-going commitment to protect the environment and promote sustainable farming methods.
Equivalent to receiving B Corp status, EcoVadis rates performance across four key areas of the business including environment, ethics, labour & human rights, and sustainable procurement.
Following an in-depth audit, we were accredited with a gold rating – the highest certification. But our success didn’t stop there! In fact, we scored in the top 3% of companies rated by Ecovadis, and the top 1% for Ethics and Sustainable Procurement!
Martin Purdy, Commercial and Marketing Director at Florette UK said: “As a farmer owned business, we’re as passionate about protecting the environment and nurturing the land as we are about growing salad. Being recognised with this accreditation highlights our strong sustainability credentials which as a business we choose not to heavily promote to our customers.”
Supporting wildlife and their habitats on our sites across the UK is just one of the factors that contributed to our Gold status for Environment, which includes being self-sufficient in water (thanks to on site reservoirs that also create natural habitats for wildlife) and leaving areas of fields uncropped to create wildlife corridors to form a network of refuge habitats for insects and small mammals.
