Sustainability

When discussing Little Weighton Kitchen and what we wanted it to be, one of the first things we all agreed on was ‘Sustainable’ a word that we see being thrown around by a lot of businesses these days, we were keen to make sure our sustainability message is a genuine one.

From our recyclable packaging to our sustainably sourced local ingredients, have a read below to find out more about the steps we are taking to be sustainable.

Sustainably sourced ingredients

Being born from a local small business (The Black Horse Little Weighton) we understand what it means to support local businesses which is why we are using only British suppliers that align with our sustainable values to create the meals sent your way.

On top of that our chefs work hard to make sure they come up with delicious recipes that use only the freshest seasonal ingredients so that we steer clear from intensively farmed products that have a negative impact on the environment.

Our packaging

We work with packaging partners that respect the planet as much as we do, with the aim of becoming a plastic free business whilst still making sure our food reaches you safe and secure.

Woolcool was launched in 2008 and the innovative, sustainable design has scooped an impressive haul of awards in the packaging, business and environmental arenas. Wool is one of the most sustainable natural materials, being available in abundance as a by-product of rearing sheep. It is also totally compostable and biodegradable, releasing valuable nitrates back into the soil.
Their cardboard delivery boxes are produced using recycled materials with FSC standards, and are easily recyclable at local authority waste depots.

Vegware is a manufacturer and visionary brand, the global specialist in plant-based compostable foodservice packaging. Vegware is made from plants using renewable, lower carbon and recycled or reclaimed materials.

Our food waste promise

We work with ReFood the Doncaster born, European market leader in food waste recycling. Their Anaerobic Digestion technology converts food waste into renewable energy, supplying gas to the national grid as well as ReGrow, their nutrient-rich biofertiliser.

Giving something back

Being part of The Black Horse Little Weighton, we will also work with The HOMELESS SHELTER continuing our partnership with our butcher and friend Gary Aldens, Hessle donating fresh meat weekly as well as donating any unused produce to help us minimise food wastage.

Starting the business in the current Covid-19 pandemic we also want to do our best to thank and help all the NHS workers out there that are fighting tirelessly to keep us safe. Because of this we will be offering a 25% discount when a NHS number is applied at checkout for the foreseeable future.
