Best practice and environmental credentials
Muntons take health and safety very seriously, employing a NEBOSH diploma qualified full time health and safety advisor, to ensure that all of our staff understand their health and safety responsibilities. Their health and safety record is enviable and is something they are intent on preserving.
All new starters at Muntons undergo basic health, safety and environmental training and are expected to pass the equivalent of the basic food hygiene certificate. Further training is provided, where it is relevant to the job role, in areas such as fire training, manual handling and first aid.
Sustainability for Muntons is not just about being clever enough to calculate their carbon or water footprint, or reduce energy and raw material usage and waste, it is about doing something practical to actually reduce their impact. Muntons has built an enviable reputation for being the greenest maltster and has made remarkable progress in diminishing their environmental impact. They have even coined a phrase to sum this up:
P.S. Practical Sustainability – it’s no afterthought.
Caring about environmental issues is important for them, after all they rely on a good harvest every year to provide the raw material needed for their products. As virtually all of their malting barley comes from within a fifty-mile radius of their maltings, they are keen to ensure that the best possible growing conditions are maintained and actively work with the local farming community to develop and apply practices which reduce the overall carbon impact.
