Speakers: Ashley Robb (Green Gain), Jim McNulty (Restructa), Steven Ogden & Katie Wybrant (Fresh-Pak Chilled Foods Ltd)
This session presents two case studies of resource efficient business models that environmental consultants, Green Gain, are currently supporting. The first case study considers Fresh-pak Chilled Foods, the UK’s largest manufacturer of deli-fillings. Green Gain has been supporting them to review their operations in order to improve their overall operational efficiency. Taking the time to review and rethink how they deliver their day-to-day business has helped Fresh-Pak to uncover significant savings and win an Asda sustainability award.
The second case study reviews the work Green Gain has delivered to help support the growth of Restructa in Scotland who have developed a high-value product from a low-value material. Restructa produce a decorative aggregate from the panel glass from Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) television screens. The product has great ‘sustainability’ credentials, and is extremely versatile being used for a number of landscaping applications. This presentation will take you through the journey of taking the product from conception to commercialisation.
