Mediterranean foods supplier, Dina Foods, has been selected for London’s Better Futures+ programme, designed to fast-track business planning for a net zero by 2030.
The company was awarded one of only 12 places available across the food, hospitality, film and creative sectors for the new scheme, which is funded by the London Mayor’s Green New Deal Fund. The 12 companies receive Green Innovation Vouchers worth £5000.
Assistant general manager, Wilda Haddad, says: “Dina Foods is acutely aware of its social, environmental and corporate responsibility to be a more sustainable and greener business. That is at the forefront of our minds and is a priority in the evolution of the company. When this wonderful Better Futures+ opportunity arose, we applied immediately.”
Dina Foods has already put in place measures to reduce energy consumption, produce less waste and increase recycling, and the programme’s educational and consultancy support will help assess what more can be done across its bakery, savoury, and confectionery business.
Better Futures+ includes a training programme with the Leonardo Centre at Imperial Business College as well as an environmental consultancy service, to help small and medium-sized enterprises to measure their carbon footprint.
