Meeting the need for a sustainable offer
Consumers have come to expect a sustainable offer from UK businesses. Providing certified alternatives in the workplace reassures both clients and consumers that the products they purchase are ethically sourced, and helps businesses meet sustainable targets.
Businesses can promote sustainability in a number of ways though their on-site catering offer, and vending is no exception. Selecta are committed to offering Fairtrade certified products from our vending machines, helping clients meet their CSR objectives and providing peace of mind that their products have been sustainably sourced.
