Energy Conservation

We are dedicated to reducing our energy consumption and embracing renewable energy sources. We have significantly reduced our electricity usage by implementing energy-efficient technologies such as LED lighting and variable speed drives.

 

We aim to minimise our carbon footprint and contribute to a greener world through constant innovation and focus on sustainable energy solutions.

Soil Enrichment

Our commitment to soil health drives us to implement practices that enrich and nurture the land. We breed Red Wriggler earthworms to improve soil fertility and minimise the dependency on chemical fertilisers.

 

Additionally, we produce and utilise compost in our vineyards, promoting natural nutrient cycling and reducing environmental impact.

Recycling

We believe in the importance of responsible waste management. Across all our farms, we have established recycling programs that divert significant waste from ending up in landfills.

 

We strive to reduce our ecological footprint and contribute to a circular economy by recycling packaging, plastics, and organic waste.

Compliance and Certifications

We hold ourselves to the highest standards of environmental stewardship. Our farms adhere to stringent certifications and standards, including BRC, GlobalGAP, GRASP, SPRING, Farming for the Future and more.

 

These certifications validate our commitment to sustainable agricultural practices, worker welfare, and environmental management, ensuring our products meet the highest quality and ethical standards.

Water Optimisation

Water is a precious resource, and we are committed to optimising its usage throughout our operations. We have upgraded our irrigation systems to improve water efficiency and implemented advanced technologies like DFM probes to optimise water usage.

 

We strive to conserve this vital resource and protect ecosystems by carefully monitoring and managing our water consumption.

Carbon Footprint Reduction

Reducing our carbon footprint is a top priority for us. We measure and analyse our carbon emissions, constantly seeking innovative ways to minimise our environmental impact.

 

Through sustainable farming practices, energy efficiency initiatives, and responsible logistics management, we are actively working towards reducing our carbon emissions and contributing to a greener, more sustainable future.
