Among his tasks as Purchasing Director, Steve includes auditing our suppliers’ environmental credentials. As we bought over 5,000 gallons of milk from West Horsley Dairy last year, he wanted to be sure they deliver it in the most sustainable way possible – and was pleased to discover they use an eco hybrid delivery vehicle. The diesel- electric hybrid has a fridge that uses revolutionary frozen-gel tube-and-plate technology. The first of its type in the world, it’s the cleanest food-service hybrid vehicle working in London, using 40% less fuel than conventional lorries.
