In all of our activities, we try to be environmentally responsible.

The aim is to reduce carbon emissions to a minimum. We strive to reduce our use of energy wherever possible, switching off and lowering ovens, grills, fryers and all electrical equipment that we use in order to carry out our work. We work closely with every client in order to ensure that we profit from any client re-cycling initiatives and facilities working as a team.
