Sourcing & Sustainability – At Accent they care about the future and are committed to doing everything they can to reduce the impact their business has on the environment. They keep food miles to a minimum sourcing locally whenever possible and try to use energy efficient combi ovens in their kitchens.
The fresh fruit and vegetables they buy are mainly sourced from the UK with 75% coming from the home counties.
Accent have been awarded the ‘Compassion in World Farming’ Good egg award for their commitment to using free range eggs throughout their business. All their meat is Red Tractor UK sourced meaning it’s traceable, safe and farmed with care. Their waste oil goes off for recycling into high grade bio fuel. They only buy fish listed on the sustainable stocks register by the Marine Stewardship Council.
Accent are working with all their schools to ensure all single use plastics are removed by 2022. They have increased their stocks of metal cutlery to ensure sufficient is always available in their attempt to remove plastic cutlery from their business.
Their cold drinks (Randor, Springbourne & Aqua splash) are in bottles made from 51% recycled plastics and are fully recyclable. They also have a completely plastic free drinks alternative which is fully biodegradable.
