In joining with IEMA we can help drive change within our business, educate our staff and help our members and suppliers to become more environmentally conscious and take practical steps to enact positive change. Being part of the corporate network will enable learnings for our environmental champions from other businesses, whilst supporting business collaboration for a better tomorrow.
Vitacress is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of fresh produce, specialising in watercress, salads and fresh herbs. It operates in the UK, Portugal, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium.
Whilst the company aims to produce the freshest, tastiest, healthiest and most exciting produce throughout the year, Vitacress knows it has a role to play in the ever-growing climate crisis. We believe that when we look after our natural resources, prevent waste, and increase energy efficiency, we will reap the benefits – improved profitability, a competitive edge, and a continual supply of resilient natural resources being just a few.
We care. We are determined to leave things better than we found them. Our people care for and endeavour to protect and enhance nature, our growing business, and the communities in which we work.
By partnering with IEMA we believe we are better placed to make the necessary changes to become more sustainable and to engage our people better through knowledge, training and inclusion.

Subsequent to start-up, each operation within Wincanton is covered by a sustainability plan which contains a realistic list of environmental projects that will deliver continuous improvements towards our customers' goals and, through alignment, our own.

We have accordingly made the commitment to recruit a dedicated staff to join the training team and we hope through our IEMA partnership benefits we can grow this team as an integral part of our training and upskilling provisions.
