Setting high standards for sustainability and responsibility

Growing Green is T&G’s commitment to the land on which we grow. It leads to healthier, more natural produce and it aids the health and development of our growers’ communities. We know our biggest business partner is the planet on which we live and grow. We’re committed to treating the earth gently and balancing what we take out of it with what we give back. We’ve chosen to work with independent experts Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) who we knew would set us high benchmarks in a set of guidelines and a framework for environmental issues, including energy, emissions, waste, water, biodiversity and transport. To ensure what we do is sustainable and responsible, we’re continuing to monitor our performance and improve our practice. For more information click here.

We’re active in the community to help bridge the gap between activity and nutrition and encourage healthy, mindful eating for generations to come.


Everyone home safe from work, every day, everywhere

The Health & Safety of everyone who works at T&G is a high priority for us, with a focus on keeping our workplace as safe as possible.
