Fast growing, food recycling solutions company, Resource Food has received Global ISO 14001 Environment Management System (EMS) certification from BSI.

ISO 14001, an internationally recognised standard for EMS, helps organisations demonstrate environmental commitment to their stakeholders – clients, employees, shareholders – while better managing environmental impact and risk.  Organisations seeking ISO 14001 certification must identify significant impacts – such as carbon emissions, energy use, water consumption – and implement environmental management programs to control and improve them.

Resource Food’s environmental efforts include minimising the company’s environmental impact and maximising opportunities to enhance the environment, which sit at the heart of its sustainable approach. By transforming surplus food products into “Re-Products” and unlocking the true potential and value of “Re-Products” through innovation and “new market” identification. To develop its “Re-Products” future, Resource Food invest in its people, organisation and collaborative approach with clients and partners to maximise innovation and minimise the impact on the environment.

Managing Director of Resource Food, Ian Robb said: “The very nature of the service we provide means that Environmental Management is at the heart of everything we do: the values and principles that govern the way we operate as a business; every policy that guides us and every action we carry out. Achieving this certification is an accolade for the high standard practices our staff adopt and the services we provide our clients and partners.”

Since 2014, Resource Food has offered national supermarkets a total food recycling solution, repurposing and recycling surplus food and packaging. The company is designed and dedicated to the sympathetic handling, management and deployment of surplus food products into animal feed, pet food and recycling sectors. By deriving value from every element, Resource Food is closing the loop, helping supermarkets take their food products full circle.
