Corporate Governance

A responsible approach

We take our role in the community and wider world seriously and set high standards for ethical performance. Our membership of SEDEX, the independent Supplier Ethical Data Exchange, allows us to maintain standards and an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement of ethical performance.

We have signed up to the 10:10 Campaign and will cut our carbon emissions by 10% during 2010. By signing up to the target, we’re making it happen and we’re hoping that others join so that together we can make a meaningful difference. Sign up here link.

Effective reach to customers and industry colleagues alike is further enhanced by our membership of the BFBi, Brewing, Food & Beverage Industry Suppliers Association, formed in 1907 as the Allied Brewery Traders Association (ABTA).

We are members of the Association of Forest Producers of Crouche (APFC) and of CE Liege, the European Cork Association, through the Cork Industry Federation of the UK.

Our membership of these associations allows us to influence and shape policy. Membership keeps us updated on the latest regulations including those governing materials in contact with food & beverages.
