Since March 2022, Hunt’s Food Group have invested in new ways to fuel their fleet of delivery trucks which travel hundreds of miles a week delivering throughout the South of England. Hunt’s now use HVO Biodiesel to power their trucks. The move away from conventional diesel for the majority of vehicles is expected to reduce the carbon footprint of our deliveries by up to 76%.
HVO Fuel is made with 100% renewable raw materials such as vegetable waste and used cooking oil which reduces carbon emissions and makes our overall operations here at Hunt’s more sustainable. It's one of the cleanest and most advanced renewable fuels available on the market today.
Phil Hopkins, Hunt’s Transport Director comments: “We are excited to be one of the first in our industry to be efficiently using a clean, renewable fuel to power our fleet. Not only does it help make our daily operations as a business cleaner, but in turn with the soaring cost of fossil fuels like diesel, it will help to keep prices down for our customers. We are looking forward to trialling fully electric delivery trucks in the future and implementing new technology to reduce our emissions and achieve our environmental commitments.”
This investment into a cleaner fuel is part of many initiatives Hunt’s Food Group have adopted to become carbon neutral by 2025.
