Our environmental pawprint

At Forthglade we are committed to finding environmentally friendly ways to run our business, whilst at the same time continuing to provide the quality of product that your four-legged friends love.

We are proud to say that all of our wet food sleeves and trays are FSC certified.

Recycling our packaging

It’s important to us to do everything we can to protect the planet that our pets love to explore. That’s why wherever possible, we make our packaging recyclable.

Wet Food

SLEEVE, TRAYS and BOXES Widely Recycled

We are proud to say that all of our wet food sleeves, trays and boxes are FSC certified.

Treats

Recycle with carrier bags at larger supermarkets

Our treats are baked in carbon-neutral eco ovens to help minimise our dog’s footprints.

 

*Dry food bags and wet food films - to maintain the quality of our food we are currently unable to use recyclable films on our wet food trays or recyclable bags for our natural dry food products. We are however always looking for solutions and hope to find a suitable alternative in the near future.

Other ways we are reducing our environmental pawprint...

We removed the sleeves from our variety cases, saving over 100 tonnes of packaging per annum.

We’re proud to say that we have recently switched to a renewable electricity provider. We chose responsibly-sourced biomass electricity which produces 86% less carbon than coal-generated power and which will significantly reduce our carbon footprint.

All food waste is recycled and turned into electricity and the bio-fertiliser produced is used to fertilise the land.

20 million litres of water recycled per annum, equivalent to 8 Olympic size swimming pools.

Our new factory has allowed us to change from diesel forklifts to electric forklifts, reducing carbon emissions. We've also reduced forklift movements by 50%.

The new factory has LED lighting throughout.

Excess energy from our production process is used to heat the offices and staff facilities.

Our new location just off the A30 dual carriageway has substantially reduced HGV movement on small country roads, we estimate by over 75,000 miles!
