At Yumello, we believe that business can be a force for good. Good for the earth and its people. And we’re totally committed to playing an active role.
Here's some of the steps we’ve been taking:
✔ CARBON NEUTRAL PRODUCTION
Our nut butters are made in small batches in the UK in carbon neutral facilities. This has been achieved through reduction of CO2 emissions - our ovens and grinders are powered by solar energy.
✔ PALM OIL - IT'S A NO FROM US
Our products are free from palm oil. Palm oil is found in up to 50% of packaged products in supermarkets and is a major driver of deforestation, destroying the habitat of some of the world’s most endangered species, like the Orangutan.
✔ 100% RECYCLABLE PACKAGING
Our jars and lids are made from 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly PET. This non-toxic material has a reduced carbon footprint than glass and in addition is extremely light (up to 10x lighter than glass for the same weight), reducing the carbon footprint of transportation of both the empty and filled jars.
✔ EMPOWERING BERBER WOMEN IN RURAL MOROCCO
We are helping to change women's lives by sourcing our argan oil directly from our partner coop Targanine in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. This enables us to ensure high quality standards, full traceability and that producers are paid a fair price for their goods in a rural area with limited work opportunities.
We know there is more work we can and will do, and we look forward to sharing our progress with you along the way. We invite you to join us on this journey and welcome your thoughts and ideas.
