Welsh soft drinks manufacturer Radnor Hills are proud to announce they have become ISO 14001 accredited which means they meet the international standards of requirements for their Environmental Management System.
ISO 14001 helps businesses improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
Based in Powys, a rural area of mid-Wales, Radnor Hills produce over 250 million bottles a year and have been working hard to reduce their carbon footprint having recently announced a move to 51% recycled plastic content in all of the bottles they produce.
“Being ISO 14001 accredited is extremely important to our business. It shows our customers and suppliers that we take our impact on the environment seriously, and we are committed to keeping it at the forefront of our business” says William Watkins, Radnor Hills Managing Director.
“Moving forward our goal is to maximise efficiency and to become a zero to landfill site by the end of 2018” says William
ISO 14001 will also help Radnor identify cost savings with greater emphasis on resource, waste and energy management.
Radnor Hills produce a wide range of products including spring waters, flavoured and functional waters, pure fruit juices, adult’s premium soft drinks, and children’s school compliant drinks. This year they installed their 8th production line which is their biggest and most efficient line to date and produces 32,000 bottles per hour.
