Booker were delighted to win Green Wholesaler of the Year at the recent Grocer Gold Awards, for the third year running.

Sustainability and recycling is hugely important to us here, and we know it is to every small business as well, which is why we have introduced some great initiatives over recent years to help our customers.

Over 16,000 Booker Wholesale customers now recycle with us, using our packaging and used cooking oil recycling services. Recycled volumes are up by an impressive 40% on the previous year, with over 2 million litres of customers used cooking oil being converted to sustainable bio fuel each year.

And in 2013, Booker branches linked with local food charities for surplus food donations, providing the equivalent of 200,000 meals to the needy in our local communities.

Because of our sustainable approach, Booker were the first wholesaler to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard for the third consecutive time, which confirms 6 years of reductions in emissions. We were also the first of five companies to achieve the new Carbon Trust Waste Standard, which acknowledges achievements made in preventing and improving waste management across the business.

Caterers and Independent Retailers who shop with Booker Wholesale should enquire about the recycling services available at their local branch, to take advantage if they haven't already done so.
