Wyke Farms: Our green journey - edie.net

This presentation demonstrates how Wyke Farms identified resource risks in its supply chain and made the changes needed to guarantee operational resilience, with practical examples including costs vs pay-back, business drivers, and lessons learned.

Sustainability is still seen as something that's "nice to have rather than essential" for big businesses - an assumption which is stifling the UK's transition to a green economy.

That's the view of Rich Clothier, the managing director of Wyke Farms. As Britain's largest family-owned cheese company, Wyke Farms has recently implemented the100 % Green initiative;reducing water use by up to 850,000 litres a day and fuelling the business entirely from onsite renewable energy

In this presentation, given at Sustainability Live 2015 last month, Clothier explained why Wyke Farms chose to go green; the various initiatives the company is now undertaking; and the tangible benfits these initiatives are now having on Wyke Farms and the environment.
