UK food producer and supplier invests in clean energy vehicle fleet

Cranswick announced its audited preliminary results for the 52 weeks ended 25 March 2023. The Hull-based company grew its profits of £146 million in the latest financial year, as it continued to bolster its pig production base to shore up its supplies of pork.

The pig and poultry producer also continued to make strides in its sustainability goals, including the progress on transitioning its fleet to clean energy through investments in bioLPG, electric and renewable diesel vehicles.

Moreover, Cranswick reached a 7.2% reduction in Scope 1 & 2 location-based carbon emissions across both manufacturing and agricultural operations and installed six further major solar panel at manufacturing sites underway. In addition, it achieved the Leading Food Partner status with FareShare for commitment to reducing food waste and providing meals for people in need.

“We have again invested at pace to drive forward our ‘Second Nature’ sustainability programme.  Six new major solar panel installations have now been approved and we are upgrading refrigeration systems across our estate to further reduce CO2 emissions.  We have made progress in transitioning our fleet to clean energy through investment in electric vehicles, bioLPG and renewable diesel,” said Adam Couch, CEO of Cranswick, regarding its sustainable business model.
