A sustainable approach
As a Certified B Corporation, we are mindful of the impact our operations have on the environment and acknowledge that fertiliser application is a significant percentage of a farm’s overall carbon footprint.
As a result, we endeavour to ensure the fertilisers we purchase are sourced from the most efficient facilities that are using abatement technology, while we only enter supplier relationships with businesses who are committed to sustainability.
This sourcing is especially important to us as, in many cases with malting barley, we are purchasing back crops from farms we have supplied fertiliser to for our malting division Simpsons Malt.
We are trialling and testing lower carbon fertiliser products with the view to reducing the carbon footprint throughout our supply chain and, at our blending plant, we predominantly blend with Calcium Ammonium Nitrate (CAN), which has a huge range of benefits around spreading, compatibility and storage.
