A Bid to Reduce Plastic

In a bid to be more environmentally friendly and reduce plastic, we stopped using plastic water cups from our water stations around the business in the UK. Last week, almost 200 staff at our head office in Bury St Edmunds were invited for lunch with our Board members. During the lunch, each member of staff was presented with a stainless steel water bottle, BPA free and dishwasher safe to take way. This is to ensure everyone can benefit from drinking plenty of water as well as taking measures to reduce the impact of plastic on our environment.

The lunch was provided by culinary arts students from West Suffolk College who created a healthy inspired menu in line with looking after ourselves and the environment. Phil Stittle, Executive Director of Business Development at West Suffolk College said, “We have been working with Treatt for nearly two years on a number of projects. We have multiple and positive strands to our partnership, including working with them to offer real live briefs to a number of our students, including those within the arts and design department and culinary arts department. We are very grateful to them for their partnership and commitment to support the young people of this region”.

After the lunch, the latest winner of ‘Employee of the Quarter’ was announced as well as those highly commended. Staff were also invited to try two new product innovations, developed by our applications team.
