Food For A Better World

We believe that everything is connected... A healthier planet creates better ingredients, which create more delicious and nutritious food, and this in turn creates healthier people and communities.


We play our part in the communities in which we operate, providing employment, with meaningful careers, fair pay and benefits which support our colleagues’ needs

We reward our colleagues in line with our values, two of our businesses are already accredited by the Real Living Wage foundation and much work has taken place across the Group to ensure pay is fair. We also offer a range of benefits to support the wellbeing of our colleagues.


We remain committed to the UK Plastic Pact and are committed to reducing the amount of plastic in our supply chain. Abel & Cole is leading the way with their brilliant innovation, and not only were they the first online retailer to offer organic food in refillable containers nationwide with Club Zero, they were in the first in the UK to develop refillable plastic milk bottles. Their single-use plastic pick-up doorstep recycling scheme is worth reading about too.


We are committed to halving our green house gas emissions by 2030 and achieving Net Zero no later than 2050.

We have independently calculated our Carbon Footprint and have set science-based targets for all 3 scopes that are aligned with a 1.5°C pathway.

We have a transition plan and budget allocated to ensure our near-term science-based targets are achievable. We will continually test, adapt and refine our plan in partnership with our stakeholders and independent experts in order to accelerate decarbonisation as quickly as possible.


Each year we donate 1.5% of EBITDA to support food poverty and food education charities operating in our local communities.

But our charitable giving goes way beyond financial donations – as well as donating funds, we also donate our surplus food and form long-lasting relationships with our charity partners by providing volunteers on a regular basis.

As well as sponsoring colleagues who are independently raising money for charities close to their hearts, we hold our WJFG Charity Challenge each year to help them raise even more money.


It’s important that the ingredients or products we use can be traced all the way back to their source of origin, both from a food safety and an ethical perspective, respecting people and the environment.

Food waste

We work hard to keep waste to a minimum, but sometimes it’s unavoidable. We try our hardest to ensure our edible surplus food supports people in food poverty in our local communities..

We have established a number of measures in all of our businesses to make sure as much surplus food as possible finds a good home.


We have committed to WRAP’s Water Road Map, to help ensure water security.


100% of our consumer products will be accredited to standards that help them make healthier and more sustainable choices by 2030.

We want to make it easy for people to choose food which offers health and environmental benefits.
