Bulk Milk & Waste reduction
offer for Hb Businesses
In early 2018, in conjunction with Paolo Pancotti (Catering Manager), we began trialling supplying bulk milk to Hereworth School. Due to the success of this trial we can now offer the same opportunity to Hawke's Bay businesses such as cafés, schools and canteens who use large quantities of milk (in excess of 18L per week).
To reduce singe-use plastic milk bottle waste and so to help look after the environment and to support our business model of sustainability.
We are aware (as no doubt many of you are too) that many of our customers are looking at and implanting waste reduction plans, particularly concerning plastic waste. In response, we have introduced a Milk Bottle Refill Service which operates from the Origin Earth Cheese Shop.
The Milk Bottle Refill Service allows customers to bring in their own bottle/s which we fill with fresh cow's milk while they wait. We also have re-fillable glass bottles for sale.
Our offer to bulk users of milk is the commercial equivalent to our Milk Bottle Refill Service – please note due to MPI regulations we cannot have glass in our factory and so are unable supply milk in glass bottles.
HOW IT WORKS
We will supply you with at least two (2) 23L food grade reusable plastic containers at cost – how many depends on how much milk you usually use:
o one container filled with milk is with you being used; and
o the other is with us for refilling.
When full each container contains 18L of milk – the equivalent of nine (9) 2L bottles – the extra space allows room for shaking/stirring.
We expect you to return the container/s to us clean – but we will sanitise and check for cleanliness before refilling and returning to you.
We also have available 2L reusable jugs at wholesale price – it maybe easier for your staff to fill these than use the milk straight from the large container.
BENEFITS TO YOU
Significant reduction in single-use plastic milk bottle waste and so a reduction in your overall waste.
Slightly reduced milk price per litre.
