Reducing waste and helping the community
In the UK, people are throwing away £13bn of food each year. That’s 43.0 million tonnes according to Gov.UK. In light of these statistics, we have developed on our Eco Friendly Policies. We donate 90% of our leftover fruit to food banks and charity organisations here at Fruidel.
AdBlue technology fitted on all Fruidel vans
We use AdBlue which is fed into the exhaust of all our vans, reacting with the nitrogen oxide gas produced by the combustion process, breaking it down into harmless nitrogen and oxygen. We are aware that emission levels in cities throughout the UK are at dangerous levels in certain areas.
Fruidel ensure that all of our brown paper and plastic bags are biodegradable. Cheap plastics are damaging the planet. There are 500 times more pieces of micro-plastic in the sea than there are stars in our galaxy. There will be more plastic than fish in the sea in 2050 by estimation. Fruidel are joining the fight against this catastrophic environmental issue, by being proactive in all areas of the business to keep green, and encourage more eco friendly policies.
