Many of our customer’s customers are vegan or vegetarian and care deeply for the environment and sustainability. A core part of our Secret Purpose is helping our customer and their customers to be more sustainable.

Offsetting our team's carbon footprint

All of Spiced’s core operations in the UK, EU and China strive to operate with the lowest possible carbon footprint. We also offset the emissions of our team's activity - including flights for business purposes - through projects including reforestation, peatland restoration, and renewable energy.


Sustainability is one of the key factors our Food Development team consider when creating new products. Our unique food manufacturing innovations enable us to create better food, more sustainably. In fact, through cradle to grave LCA, Spiced products contribute 50% less CO2e/kg than the industry average for the same recipe*

“more than 50% less emissions…”

*The scores are based on global average CO2e/kg for the product recipes v calculated CO2e/kg for the same recipe using our specific farming methods, processing, packaging & transport.


Sustainability goes beyond just the recipes. All products

  • All products use FSC certified cardboard packaging for the retail packs and 100% recycled board for the outer cases.
  • Inks used are water and soya bean oil based.
  • Retail packs use the smallest possible LDPE (recycle 4) bag inside an uncoated cardboard box. This increases the recyclability of the retail packs ((coated boards, (which look more environmentally friendly and are not fully recyclable.))
  • Packaging size and shape is optimised to ensure maximum container fill reducing the CO2/kg.
  • Full-service supply chain management including providing forecasting, local storage and shipping fulfilment to further multi- handling and reduce emissions.

“Simple goodness is… complicated.”



All of our factories continue to strive to improve their sustainability and reduce their impact on the environment. While the focus is continuous improvement the results achieved are industry leading.

Our manufacturing plants rely on their local power generation grids to a large extent, however, have managed to achieve up to 60% green energy inputs, and these numbers continue to grow. In markets where coal fired energy is the norm this is a huge local achievement.
