Eco-friendly disposable plate specialist outsources UK supply chain
Jun 03, 2019
The Wholeleaf Company – manufacturer of a ecologically friendly range of disposable plates and cutlery – has outsourced control of its UK supply chain to Walker Logistics.
The Wholeleaf Company uses naturally fallen Indian palm leaves to make disposable plates, bowls or platters.
Walker will supply the Wholeleaf Company growing client base – which includes: private members club group, Soho House; The Goring Hotel; organic food recipe specialists, Abel & Cole; and popular restaurant chain, Wahaca – and, in addition, will supply B2C orders placed via the Wholeleaf Company’s online portal.
“With growing concern about the impact of single use plastics on our environment, it is no surprise that the Wholeleaf Company is enjoying a huge upsurge in demand for its range of environmentally-conscious disposable plates and cutlery,” says William Walker, sales director of Walker Logistics.
He continues: “The Wholeleaf owners sought a logistics company that could not only provide the level of supply chain support they were looking but also needed a partner that shared their commitment to sustainability.
““Environmental commitments are an integral part of Walker Logistics’ day-to-day activities. We are a recent winner of the United Kingdom Warehousing Association’s Environment Award and hold Soil Association accreditation to operate as an organically certified warehouse which means we can process both retail and trade orders that contain organic products, while meeting the high standards laid down by the Soil Association.”
The contract will run from Walker’s multi-user fulfillment centre on the outskirts of Reading.
