BaxterStorey are delighted to have become the first contract caterer to partner with family-owned agricultural company, Beeswax Dyson, who will grow jacket potatoes and garden peas exclusively for BaxterStorey customers.
Beeswax Dyson sustainably farm and manage land to grow a diverse range of food products and power thousands of homes with the renewable energy they produce.
Talking about the partnership, Charlotte Rouse, head of mobilisations and supply chain for BaxterStorey said: “It’s great to be working with such a like-minded company as Beeswax Dyson. They are so innovative in their approach to farming and technology and by growing potatoes and peas especially for our customers, it means we understand the sustainability credentials. They are already looking at what else they can grow for BaxterStorey, which is really exciting”.
Working closely with Beeswax Dyson allows BaxterStorey to continue to source local, seasonal ingredients for their customers, as well as reducing food miles.
Mike Hanson, director of sustainability for BaxterStorey said: “It’s amazing to have the opportunity to work with Beeswax Dyson; our ethos is the same in terms of our approach to sustainable farming. It’s so important our customers understand where their food comes from and have a better understanding of that connection from farm to fork”.
Kevin Dunford, BaxterStorey senior purchasing manager for fresh foods said: “Working directly with growers is a key focus for our supply chain to ensure we are sourcing quality UK produce for our customers. It is exciting to be the first contract caterer to work with Beeswax Dyson who like BaxterStorey, are forward thinking and share a lot of the same values in terms of quality, sustainability and innovation”.
