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:
EMPOWERING BERBER WOMEN IN RURAL MOROCCO
We are helping to change women's lives by sourcing our argan oil directly from our female-led 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.
CARBON NEUTRAL PRODUCTION IN THE UK
Our nut butters are made in small batches in the UK in carbon neutral facilities. We've achieved this by powering all our ovens and grinders by solar energy, drastically reducing our CO2 emissions.
PALM OIL - IT'S A NO FROM US
Palm oil production is a major cause of deforestation that continues to destroy the habitats of already endangered species, such as the Orangutan, yet this oil is still found in up to 50% of packaged products in supermarkets.
Our products are free from palm oil - always have been, always will be.
100% RECYCLABLE PACKAGING
Our jars and lids are made from 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly PET. This non-toxic material is up to 10x lighter than glass (for the same weight), reducing the carbon footprint for the transportation of both our empty and filled jars.
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.
