Natural, nutritious food ingredients start here

140 years of working hand in glove with growers - and of passing traditional practices from one generation to another - means sustainability has always been important to EDME.

Now Anglia Maltings Holdings (AMH), of which EDME is part, has announced its commitment to Net Zero by 2045 and launched our inaugural Sustainability Report.

The report outlines our Sustainability Strategy, which is guided by the UN Sustainability Development Goals and the company purpose and values. It lays out the goals for AMH’s three businesses – food ingredient producers, EDME; malt producers, Crisp; and cereal processors, Micronized Food Products - and the plans for achieving them.

Significant inroads have already been made.

Electricity across the company’s UK sites is from 100% renewable sources. The adoption of best techniques and processes ensures that CO2 emissions are minimised. There is very little waste. Co-products from processing, for example, go to animal feed. Plus, the location of EDME in the heart of the country’s best cereal growing region, ensures the minimalisation of HGV food miles.

“We are on the right track, but of course there is still a lot to do,” says AMH chief executive, Stuart Sands.

“In a business built on the relationship with the land, we’re highly conscious of what has been passed down to us. We, in turn, have one eye on the future, and the legacy we will leave to those who follow. One of our company values, ‘Pass it on Better’, sums it up neatly.”

“The impact of climate change affects us all, and we all have a part to play in reducing our impact on the environment. It is only by setting ambitious goals; devising effective strategies; and working cooperatively with partners and communities; that anything meaningful will be achieved.

Stuart concludes, “We’re committed to net zero by 2045, and are working in partnership with our suppliers and customers to help us get there. Effective collaboration is the key to passing things on better to the next generation.”
