Leading the way to a compostable future.

Oliver Kay Produce are wholesale greengrocers, operating from two main warehouses, one in Bolton a second in Wednesbury in addition to three other, smaller sites. The business delivers to approximately 3,500 catering establishments 6 days a week. “A business of this type and size obviously generates an amount of waste in the form of packaging and food waste” says Paul Leyland, Commercial & Sustainability Director for the company. “Deliveries come in to us in cardboard boxes, we QC each item by hand (with any items not to standard being rejected), and we then separate and re-pack to send out to our customers”.

Farmers were late planting crops due to a dreadfully wet February and March, and with the current heatwave many farmers are falling behind in their harvest cycle by a good 3-4 weeks. As a company we have done our very best to alleviate any seasonal issues, unfortunately though, we could not combat them all. So what is the next stage?
