Our Questions & Answers
What is GreenTrack?
This is Linden Foods new sustainability strategy.
‘So is this an environmental strategy?’
There’s more to it than that - so while the environment forms an important part of GreenTrack, it is only 25% of the strategy.
‘What’s the rest of it then?’
Well – for instance this covers how we work with farmers to ensure sustainable supply of livestock, it covers the work we do
with staff to encourage learning and continual improvement, and the work with customers to target issues such as salt in food
Well it sounds impressive but is it really true?’
It certainly is, we want to highlight those things that we already do – but also to set tough challenges for future improvement.
What kind of things are planned for the future?
We have set goals for expanding our apprenticeship schemes, increasing our involvement in communicating sustainable farming,
reducing energy and water use at our sites, and continuing to meet the needs of our customers.
What’s the ultimate aim?
To make Linden Food’s a truly sustainable business – through the sound management of our environment, our colleagues and
communities, our agriculture and our customers.
Why are we doing this?
It’s the right thing to do: we want to ensure the continued success of the business. That involves thinking not just about
next year, but the next ten years and beyond, but don’t just take our word for it..
