Freshtime was delighted to be presented with the Green Award at the Boston Business Awards in November 2012.
The prize, sponsored by Boston Borough Council, was accepted by Freshtime’s Health, Safety and Training Co-ordinator Graham Dayes.
“We have been making our business as carbon-neutral and zero-to-landfill as possible” said Graham. “It’s when you look at the various initiatives in a more holistic way that you realise you have truly made a difference.”
“We acknowledge that the continuous improvements we make to our business will secure a long-term positive effect on our environment, make us more competitive with our customers and secure the future of the business and jobs within the community.”
Ian Farmer, Partnerships and Sustainability Manager at Boston Borough Council, said Freshtime stood out in a strong field of candidates thanks to the company’s commitment to research and innovation and to the close involvement of its staff in helping to develop green measures to reduce its environmental footprint.
“The judges were also impressed by the company’s focus on integrating environmental and business objectives as well as by its ability to quantify benefits and savings from its improvements” he said.
Freshtime is hoping to add to its success at the Boston Business Awards when this year’s winners are announced on 28th November 2013.
