Sustainability is about integrating environmental, social and economic conditions into our values and operations in an accountable manner to deliver long term value to our customers, stakeholders, employees, communities and the environment. Sustainability is also vital to steer operational excellence, better utilise resources, and ensure business growth. Therefore, Deli Fresh Limited has embedded sustainability as a strategic tool to incorporate different elements in our business operations to ensure consistent progress in the ever-changing world of the inflight catering business.
Championing the Swire Pacific Sustainable Food Policy, we are committed to refraining from any unsustainable food items and advocate this aspiration to our customers.
FOOD TRIMMINGS TO STOCK
Our culinary team strives to minimise the raw material waste generated from the meal production process. In 2016, we began utilising the food trimmings in the food preparation stage on a daily basis to produce Western and Chinese stock, a process we are continually enhancing. The stock is comprised of raw materials such as meat and vegetables, including Portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, and spices. The stock is then brewed for about 9 hours and serves as a basis for approximately 80% of our dishes, enriching their flavour. Through this initiative, we endeavour to rescue about 300 kg of food trimmings diverted from sending to the recycler per day.
DONATION OF BAKERY PRODUCTS AND COOKED FOOD TO FOOD ANGEL
We have been supporting and partnering with Food Angel since 2016, donating our surplus food to benefit people in need. In 2018, CPCS donated 4.6 tonnes of unopened bottled water, bakery products and cooked food to help the needy in the local community.
