Whitby Seafoods goes green with energy

North-Yorkshire based frozen seafood manufacturer, Whitby Seafoods are pleased to announce that their head office in Whitby and their production site, Kilkeel Seafoods in Northern Ireland, are now fuelled by 100% green electricity, with zero carbon emissions. The family-owned business was set up in 1985 by Graham Whittle, who set out on a mission to make bloomin’ special seafood.

Kilkeel Seafoods site turned to green energy on the 1st September, with Whitby Seafoods head office following suit as of 1st October. The move comes at a crucial time when many businesses and individuals are looking at ways in which they can help tackle climate change.

The green energy that both sites are now using comes from 100% renewable technologies such as hydro, wind and biomass. The production does not involve the burning of fossil fuels making it carbon-free.

Barry Harland, Head of Responsible Business at Whitby Seafoods said: “We’re thrilled that both our sites in Whitby and Kilkeel are now running on green energy. For us, as a well-established family business, it’s important that we’re seen to be taking initiative on such a serious world issue.

Climate change and the environment is at the forefront of everybody’s minds, with businesses and individuals making a conscious effort to find ways in which they can reduce their carbon footprint. For us, it’s a small step in the right direction to making the world a greener place. After all, doing the right thing is a big part of our family values.”
