    Hunt’s Food Group cuts vehicle emissions with switch to biofuel

    Hunt’s Food Group said it has reduced its vehicle emissions by 76 per cent since switching to biofuel to power its delivery fleet.

    The Dorset-based wholesaler said the move away from conventional diesel for the majority of vehicles, which travel hundreds of miles each week, delivering throughout the south of England, is just one of many initiatives it has adopted to achieve carbon net-zero status by 2025.

    The biofuel is made with 100% renewable raw materials such as vegetable waste and used cooking oil which reduces carbon emissions and is one of the cleanest and most advanced renewable fuels available.

    “We are excited to be one of the first in our industry to be efficiently using a clean, renewable fuel to power our fleet,” said Phil Hopkins, Transport Director. “Not only does it help make our daily operations as a business cleaner, but in turn with the soaring cost of fossil fuels like diesel it will help to keep prices down for our customers.”

    “We are looking forward to trialling fully electric delivery trucks in the future and implementing new technology to reduce our emissions and achieve our environmental commitments.”
