HOW SUSTAINABLE IS YOUR SITE?
Working closely with nature for 6 generations has been fundamental to the success of our company and we continue to focus on further sustainability initiatives for future generations.

The residue from our apple pressing (pomace) is used as animal feed or as material for biomass energy generation.

We stream all our wastes for recycling and have taken all measures we can to minimise our energy use.
