Helping to create a sustainable environment
At Ginsters, we recognise the importance of sustainability and the responsibility to act upon this. Our three priorities involve using sustainable palm oil, single and broader plastic reduction and food waste reduction. We treat each one of these with the importance they deserve and are integral in our vision for a sustainable future
We will campaign for the use of ‘segregated certified’ palm oil
We only use ‘segregated certified’ palm oil that can be traced to the plantation. We demand all other makers of pastry products commit to using ‘segregated certified’ palm oil. We continually review our sourcing policy considering emerging environment concerns.
We will reduce our packaging by 30%, with 80% recyclable by 2022
We will reduce our packaging usage by 30% by 2022. We will ensure 80% of our packaging is recyclable by 2022. We will remove black plastic from our products in 2019. Working with our suppliers we’ll create a PE recyclable film that is suitable for use with our products.
We ensure all our bakery food waste goes to anaerobic digestion
We strive to never waste food in our bakery. All our bakery food waste is sent to anaerobic digestion where the food is turned into energy and ends up as fertiliser to be used as needed in agriculture.

We support local farm sourcing wherever possible
