North West Norfolk MP, James Wild, has witnessed Greenyard Frozen’s commitment to sustainability to help provide food to people in need.

On Friday, Mr Wild was given a tour of the Lynn site by commercial director, Brendan Legrove and operations director, Neil Winner.

Greenyard Frozen is one of the largest companies in Lynn based on turnover and turns freshly harvested fruits and vegetables into frozen products.

Mr Wild was briefed on the company’s plans to further improve its environmental sustainability, investment plans including in new chill stores, and its partnership with the charity Fareshare to divert food to community groups.

He was impressed by the company’s progress in making the site on the Hardwick industrial estate more sustainable.

During the visit, he heard about Greenyard Frozen’s plans and investment to become more environmentally friendly through measures to reduce its carbon footprint, the amount of water that the site uses and food waste.

He was also shown the new chill store that Greenyard Frozen has invested in to allow them to meet future demand and to retain their high standards.

With peas arriving from local farmers in a matter of weeks, the site will shortly be operating at its most intense period during the year.

Mr Wild also heard about the partnership with Fareshare, the UK’s longest running food redistribution charity, to get more edible food onto people’s plates instead of it being disposed of. Customer service manager, Laura Dixon, initiated the link with the charity.

Mr Wild said: “Greenyard Frozen’s commitment to deliver quality products while reducing the environmental impact of its operations demonstrates that a focus on sustainability makes business sense.

“It was particularly encouraging to hear how the firm’s employees are an important source of ideas on how to do more in this area including on reducing food waste.

“Its innovative partnership with FareShare has helped ensure that a huge amount of food ended up on people’s plates rather than being disposed of.”
