UK Farm Feeds meets two urgent requirements in the UK food industry today.
Disposal of Unsold Bread, Confectionery & Cereal From Supermarkets
Firstly, we provide an economically and ecologically viable outlet for the out of date bread, cake, confectionery and cereal products from supermarkets, confectioners and food manufacturers. Supermarkets currently pay waste specialists to collect this unsold food. The waste contractors then pay landfill companies to tip this food into precious landfill space, or send it to incineration plants which then contribute to the growing greenhouse gas problem. Anaerobic digestion has also been trialled without success, see About Us for details.
Retaining Unsold Supermarket Food in the Food Chain
Partnering with UK Farm Foods the waste contractors pay a significantly reduced disposal fee, reducing the cost to the supermarkets. From an ecological perspective, the supermarkets and waste contractors improve their green credentials by retaining this unsold food in the food chain rather than wasting rapidly shrinking landfill capacity or incinerating the food.
Nutritious, Easily Digestible Pig Food – At a Fraction of Manufactured Prices
Secondly, we process and sell the unsold bread, confectionery and cereal product to pig farmers, providing a wholesome, nutritious feed for animals at a fraction of the cost of normal pig feed. Manufactured pig feed is made from imported materials and is a raw product. Having already been cooked, our pig feed is more easily digested by the animal. Please see Our Process for details.
Quality Pig Feed at Low Prices – Helping to Keep Pig Farmers in Business
If ever UK pig farmers needed some good news, it is right now. For them, the turmoil in the economy at large is overshadowed by the state of the pig feed market. The price of feed has risen dramatically in 2010 and the prognosis is not good, with further rises expected. With the consumers, and especially the large retail chains resisting any attempt to increase prices, many pig farms are becoming unviable.
UK Farm Feeds takes what would otherwise be wasted supermarket food and processes it into a high quality pig feed. Because the costs of this initiative are so low, the resulting pig feed is also considerably lower than manufactured feed.
Being tradition old British breed pig farmers ourselves, we really do appreciate the benefit of this low cost food supply. See About Us for details.
The UK Farm Feeds operation is attracting intense interest and receiving support from many food related businesses, waste disposal contractors and other interested organisations for several reasons. See Latest News.
