Merry Christmas!

Wishing our customers and contacts around the world a very Merry Christmas and a successful 2020. 

We are proud to support the following charities this Christmas:

Northamptonshire Carers - GBP 250
This charity is local to KM and supports carers throughout our county. According to the last census, there are 70,000 Carers in Northamptonshire: for us, that means there are 70,000 reasons to care. With 1-in-10 of us being a Carer at any one time, we need the support of the whole community to continue to provide the support Northamptonshire Carers do and meet ever-growing demand. For more information, visit www.northamptonshire-carers.org

Australian Red Cross - AUD 500
Looking further afield to our export markets, Australia is experiencing one of the worst bushfire seasons on record, with devastating fires in Queensland and New South Wales affecting people, communities and wildlife. This year we have donated to the Disaster Relief and Recovery appeal, which helps communities before, during and after a disaster. For more information, visit www.redcross.org.au

The Wildlife Trust - GBP 310
Donations raised from our company Christmas raffle were matched by our "Best Place to Work" fund and donated to the The Wildlife Trusts. For more than a century The Wildlife Trusts have been saving wildlife and wild places all around the UK, increasing people’s awareness and understanding of the natural world, and deepening people’s relationship with it. For more information, visit www.wildlifetrusts.org

Please note our offices will be closed from midday GMT on 24th December until 0900 GMT on Thursday 02 January.

Compostable packaging boost for food waste recycling aims

Compostable packaging is crucial if food waste recycling is to be increased, according to a new report based on responses from experts across Europe.

The report, published by environmental consultancy Ricardo Energy, is being circulated to encourage the Government to support compostable packaging to help meet its food waste recycling objectives and reduce plastic contamination in organic waste streams.

Lifting the Lid on Plastic: Food for thought on tackling food waste

Try to imagine 200 million elephants. Or 900 million compact cars. That is the equivalent weight of food lost or wasted each year. 

The startling 1.3 billion tonnes of loss or waste is roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
