Bruton cheesemaker’s gas deal

Wyke Farms, one of the UK’s largest independent cheese producers and milk processors, has announced a unique partnership with Sainsbury’s to supply Green gas for its stores.

Running for a year, Wyke Farms will supply a large proportion of the supermarket’s green gas, which makes up 6% of Sainsbury’s total gas use. This will save over 16 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per day or 24 thousand tonnes over the length of the supply partnership. This equates to over 5000 average cars driven for one year, based on average mileage.

‘We are delighted to be supplying Sainsbury with Green gas for their stores” said Richard Clothier, Managing Director and 3rd generation family member at Wyke Farms, he continues: “Supplying customers with Gas as well as cheese, taking waste back in return, all forms part of the type of circular approach where everyone is a winner – especially the environment!”

Paul Crewe, Sainsbury’s Head of Sustainability, Engineering & Energy adds: “We are always looking for innovative ways to reduce our impact on the environment. Our partnership with Wyke Farms shows the commitment we have to drive down our carbon footprint in what we are sure will be an efficient and sustainable way.”
