Environmental Policy

Committed & Responsible

Fresh Convenience Catering was established in 2004 and purchased by Heart In Hospitality Pty Ltd in August of 2017 and continues to provide Perth catering for all manner of events, conferences, gatherings & meetings.

Inline with current practices the world over, Fresh Convenience Catering has committed to continually improving its environmental and social sustainability performance. We are part of the environment, what we use and how we use resources - including people and products is of paramount importance to the well being of all. It is not strictly then environmental - but more a policy of how we choose to be a business and how we choose to operate that dictates our environmental impact or not on the world and all others.

This is often taken for granted and assumed - however if the use of plastic is an issue for one and not for another based on a need to get more for themselves is this not the issue more so than the actual use of the plastic? Something for all of us to deeply consider.

The fact that there is a 'need' and 'push' to  gain rather than see that there is enough for all tells us that there is something wrong with the current landscape and no amount of 'outer landscaping' will reshape it - we all need to revisit what it is to be in business, to be employees, colleagues, friends and family members - and therefore our decisions as business owners and employees etc have to be grounded in the fact that we are all equally responsible for what we put out into the world.

It then follows that if we choose a level of responsibility - we then cannot make a decision that goes against that. For if we do we are using words without integrity and this then affects how the business is to truly deliver.

Our day to day initiatives are then based on how we choose to work in a harmonious way with integrity as our guiding light.

 

These day to day initiatives include:

Our kitchen runs on electricity supplemented by solar power.

Food waste is composted and cardboard & plastics recycled by WRITE Solutions.

Used oil is collected, dewatered & refined ready for use as biodiesel fuel by Cookers.

Packaging, cups, lids, rubbish bags, smoothie bags etc for the catering and cafes is supplied by BioPak & Vegware.

In the kitchen we use BioGone products for plastic wrapping if it is required.

Any food that is made and not able to be supplied due to cancellation or alike we distribute to the local community centre or nearby primary school.

We purchase from local WA suppliers where possible.

Even sustainability has to be about people first - we work with our team on food, energy and water use awareness to prevent waste.

We  comply with national, state and local government policy and legislation.

We operate our cafes and catering business with all of us being paramount in our decision making processes.
