Being sustainable and ethical is not a box ticking or a marketing exercise, it's a belief system that runs through everything we do. From the ground up we have designed Positive Bakes to make the difference.
Naturally there are limitations and compromises that we have had to make however we will continue to evolve as technology and the supply chain improves and push our company to be at the forefront of sustainability.
Only using plant based ingredients has a significant impact on reducing the Co2 emissions generated from more conventional dairy based products.
The ingredients we use are not the cheapest, they come from certified sources, many being organic and are all completely traceable.
Our entire range is better for the environment, do not use any animal products and do not cost the earth. In short, everyone wins.
From the ground up we have designed Positive Bakes to make the difference.

Like all food producers packaging is a challenging area. The tendency for far too long has been about plastic trays and plastic wraps all based on cost. Our belief is this situation must change rapidly as it is not an acceptable solution.
Our solution to minimise plastic packaging and our impact on the environment is to offer our range in larger sizes, so you can order less often and keep frozen - minimising packaging, cost, shipping and food waste.
We love our cardboard boxes, they transport well, store well and are 100% compostable.
After an extensive search we have found a bespoke food grade wrap that is 100% compostable and 100% biodegradable. This wrap is completely plant based and far better for the environment than a typical BPA free plastic wrap which ends up in landfill and adds to the problem.
We have worked hard to reduce our carbon footprint at every opportunity and will continue to implement positive change in our processes to benefit the environment.
Our entire product range is plant based which is more sustainable and better for the planet, however that is not enough for us.
Our modern production facility combined with efficient production equipment has a low environmental impact. Our locally sourced and UK manufactured packaging and choosing to work with a carbon neutral courier company ensures all aspects of what we do has a minimal impact on our planet.
