All our delivery vans run on 7% bio diesel which provides substantially reduced fuel costs. Using bio diesel in our delivery vehicles has resulted in a 60% saving on fuel and running costs and reduced our carbon emissions.
Ivan Wood & Sons deliver a full range of fruit and vegetables produce, local when in season. The company also supply a wide range of pre-prepared vegetable products, including the company's famous Woody's Chips.
What Food Standard do you work with
SALSA certification is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate to an auditor that they are able to produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard.
Ivan Wood & Sons is recognised in the fruit and vegetable trade as the most environmentally friendly wholesalers in Scotland, maybe the UK. And here's why:
In 2006 we bored our land for spring water which now supplies all our business and domestic usage. This produces an annual saving of £24,000 along with an organic, chlorine-free method of washing the produce.
We recycle all of our raw materials including the vegetable peel and trimmings which go to feed local livestock.
In 2011 we installed a 40 kw solar panel system at a cost of £130,000. This runs our refrigeration system and provides electricity for our warehouse. The power we use is equivalent to 2,000 kitchen appliances and, whereas the bill was previously £1,250 per month, it is now averaging £250 per month. It also generates around £12,000 per year from the feed in tariff
Waste water from the potato washer and the topsoil sediment is spread back on the land.
By developing an in-house process to prepare our fresh potato products we no longer import from Holland which saves tens of thousands of road miles per year significantly reducing our carbon footprint.
All the paper, cardboard, and plastic containers brought onto site are recycled by Recycle Fife Ltd and anything that can’t be recycled is put through our onsite smokeless incinerator.
All the products we use to wash our vehicles are biodegradable
