Wenzel's Is Going Green!
Our community is at the heart of everything we do — which means that creating sustainable solutions is our priority. And we are thrilled to announce our new efforts toward becoming a greener organisation. We’re taking the following strides:
We’ve invested £250,000 in installing solar panels at our head office, harnessing clean and renewable energy to power our operations.
Electric Delivery Vans
Our entire fleet of area management vehicles is exclusively electric, drastically reducing our emissions. We also have multiple electric delivery vans in our logistics fleet.
Too Good To Go Magic Bags
We’ve used Too Good To Go to divert 500,000 magic bags from going to landfill — reducing waste and supporting a more circular economy.
Cooking Oil Recycling
We are committed to recycling all of our cooking oils, ensuring they’re repurposed rather than contributing to environmental harm.
Food Waste Recycling
All food waste is recycled - breaking down into biogas which can be used as a form of renewable energy.
All of our packaging materials are sourced from the Forest Stewardship Council or other sustainable sources.
Our bakery, head office and over 100 of our shops are powered by primarily renewable energy. Where this isn’t possible, our provider plants trees to offset our carbon footprint.
But we’re not stopping there! These sustainability initiatives are expanding to our stores. Each location’s energy usage will be carefully monitored, and the store that demonstrates the lowest energy usage per square foot will be recognised as our Wenzel’s Going Green Champion!
This friendly competition is our way of encouraging stores to cut unnecessary energy waste. The planet will thank them. And so will we! Together, we can build a greener and more sustainable future for our family business and the communities we serve.
There’s always progress to be made, but we are excited about what we’ve accomplished and what the future holds. Thank you for your enthusiasm about these projects — we hope they make buying our bakes a little sweeter.
Love, Wenzel’s x
