Aston Manor Cider has been shortlisted in the sustainability category at The Drinks Business Green Awards 2019.
The Drinks Business Green Awards 2019 is the world’s largest programme to raise awareness of green issues in the drinks trade and recognise and reward those who are leading the way in sustainability and environmental performance.
The business impressed the judges with its extensive sustainability agenda and commitment to reducing its environmental impact.
As part of the programme, Aston Manor switched to 51% recycled content in all large pack (PET) plastic bottles, a first for the alcoholic drinks industry, which will save approximately 1,000 tonnes of raw material annually.
The most recent stage of Aston Manor’s programme has seen the cider maker install an eco-card packing machine to replace shrink wrap and plastic rings with card equivalents for its multipack canned ciders.
Jamie Weall, head of compliance at Aston Manor Cider, said: “We have been making great strides with our sustainability agenda for a number of years now, so it is fantastic to be recognised as one of the best businesses in the drinks industry for our commitment to the environment.”
Aston Manor’s sustainable business practices have been lauded at several industry awards in 2019. The business was named Green Business of the Year and Company of the Year at the Birmingham Post Business Awards, as well as collecting the Large Business of the Year prize at the West Midlands Business Masters.
