Grove Pet Foods shows its 'green' credentials
Grove Pet Foods, the maker of Vitalin and Alpha, has installed solar panels at its premises on the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire border.
The company says the project reflects its strong commitment to improving its green credentials, not only to benefit the business by cutting costs, but for the environment and local community, by reducing their carbon footprint.
“The solar panels will significantly reduce the energy bills and cut carbon emissions," said director John Walgate.
"Any electricity not used by Grove Pet Foods, predominantly at weekends, will be exported to the grid for use by local homes and businesses.
“The installation of the solar panels is in keeping with our environmentally-conscious approach to manufacturing high quality pet food. We are proud to say that, wherever possible, our carefully-selected ingredients are sourced from the UK, with some even from local farms.”
