The fact Cranstons exists to champion locally farmed meats and locally made produce makes us a very low food mile enterprise.
The local nature of our beef, lamb, pork and chicken supply and our commitment to using local abattoirs means our meat typically travels less than 50 miles from field to shop. Find out more about our meat sourcing here
Our four local produce food halls have over 50 Cumbrian food and drink suppliers so our bought-in goods are predominantly produced right on our door step.
We are working hard to reduce our use of plastic, and the waste it creates. Over the last 12 months we have made significant changes and are continuing make progress with eliminating single-use plastics.
What we have done so far:
Hot counter + takeaway food
Fruit & Veg
Store cupboard items
What we’re looking to change next
We take every opportunity to improve the energy efficiency throughout our business. Refrigeration equipment produces waste heat, a large proportion of this is recovered and used to heat the water in our production unit. As other equipment becomes redundant or is required on new projects we take great care to specify energy saving equipment such as LED lights and light sensors.
We make the effort to recycle packaging that is able to be recycled. Where we can, we will use packaging that is made from recycled materials such as bottles and card.
