We love crisps, but we love our planet more.
We've taken every step we could to make Spudos as sustainable as possible. From how our crisps and Spud Dust are produced, to how they're packaged, distributed and shipped. Read on for more information.
UK sustainably grown and produced.
Our crisps are grown and produced in the UK on a sustainable farm that runs on solar power, converts the used sunflower into biodiesel for the tractors, and uses recycled digestate fertiliser.
The crisps get delivered to Spudos HQ in London by the pallet, and there we put them into airtight tubs for distributing out to the zero waste shops, offices and pubs, and supplying our lovely online customers.
Spudos HQ is actually an up-cycled old shipping container in a fantastic community in East London called Containerville. We have many sustainable neighbours here producing everything you can imagine from beer brewing and kimchi fermenting to doggy day care and podcasting.
Closed loop delivery.
We have closed loop delivery to our retailers. We drop off the crisps in our large 2Kg tubs, and when we do the next delivery we pick up the empties, bring them back to Spudos HQ, wash and sterilise them ready for our next crisp delivery. For our London shops, office and pubs we deliver by cargo bicycles, and outside London we use electric powered delivery companies where possible.
We avoid single use plastics.
We avoid single use plastics, and only use home compostable plastics when totally necessary, and that includes the labels on our Spud Dust jars and Spudos tubs - they're all water proof, oil proof, while being home compostable. Even our shipping labels are home compostable. On top that we'll give you a quid for each Spud Dust Shaker you send back so we can use them again.
There's always room to improve, and we're striving to do just that on a daily basis.
Thank you for being a part of the Spudos journey and supporting us!
