Gibbins Quality Meats is based in beautiful Devon and we strongly believe we have a responsibility to care for the environment. This responsibility forms an essential part of how we operate.

We are committed to supporting Westcountry farmers and suppliers, and see using local produce as an important sustainable priority. As a result, we encourage all our customers and suppliers to ‘buy local’.

We work hard to reduce food miles and use live mapping to assist with route planning. The vehicles in our fleet have been carefully selected and fitted with tracking software to monitor driving economy and standards. We also pioneered trials and installed Ashwoods lightfoot system into our vehicles which has improved our fuel consumption on our vehicles by over 20% .

We also monitor and plan traffic into J&A Gibbins so we can evaluate and lower carbon emissions from vehicles by reducing the amount of deliveries to us. This policy extends to our staff; we encourage them to consider their own greener transport options where possible Paul Gibbins leads by example cycling a 20 mile round trip to work .

Packaging at Gibbins Quality Meats is kept to a minimum. We use recyclable, robust plastic delivery crates and recycle all cardboard waste.

We are the only catering butchers in the Westcountry to have invested in a recycling system for our waste meat and bone products, which converts this unwanted waste into an eco-friendly compost.
