We Made the FWD Gold Medal Finals… THREE times!
Big congratulations to ALL our staff for helping us to be finalists at the FWD Gold Medal Awards, which celebrates the best businesses in UK grocery and foodservice wholesale.
JJ has been shortlisted for THREE Awards (whoop!): Service to Caterers, Digital Innovation and the Green Wholesaler Award. It’s the first time we’ve applied for the ‘Green’ Award and delighted that the efforts of our team have been recognised.
Here’s just a teaser of what we’ve been up to…
Over the past twelve months JJ’s has reduced idling in vehicles by 70% helping to cut carbon emissions by 2% across. We’ve launched an Eco-Packaging range to help our customers meet demand for more sustainable packaging options.
We use paperless technology to reduce waste across every warehouse and, just last week, all our branches became MSC certified – which means that a range of fish and seafood products are sourced in a way that ensures that there will be plenty more for generations to come. 13% of energy across all London branches are generated by solar power.
Keep your fingers, toes and eyeballs crossed – the results will be announced on November 29th! Good luck to all the other worthy finalists and thank you to the judges and the FWD for their kind support. Read more here.
