Tideford Organics, based in Devon have switched to using green energy provided by Ecotricity, the UK’s leading green energy provider. In 2016 Tideford became the UK’s first organic, vegan and gluten-free brand in efforts to include more vegetables into people’s diets.
Tideford say that leading a plant based diet can reduce your carbon footprint by 50 per cent, and have now gone a step further to reduce the company’s impact on the environment.
Tideford’s managing director, Lynette Sinclair said: “Tideford always aims to make delicious food that’s good for you, and the planet. It’s the reason we’ve always been organic, and one of the main reasons we became a vegan company. The next logical step was to find the greenest possible energy to power our business, so we’re delighted to be partnering with Ecotricity.”
Dale Vince, the founder of Ecotricity said: “Switching to green energy is one of the biggest – and the easiest things – that any business can do to cut the emissions that cause climate change. By switching to green energy, Tideford Organics will reduce the environmental impact of their own operations, while supporting Britain’s energy independence and the green economy.”
Tideford have also launched a new initiative where they are making a conscious effort to reduce the use of plastic. Working in collaboration with suppliers, experts and top universities, they are finding a more environmentally friendly solution to their packaging. Whilst their plastic soup pots are recyclable, they’re taking their efforts to be more sustainable an extra step further.
Tideford Organic’s products are available to buy online from Ocado and many independent retailers.
