But we’re not stopping there. We’re looking at everything ‘from grain to glass-in-hand’ to see how we can be better including helping our farmers and grain suppliers adopt new practices that’ll see them achieve gold accreditations in the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative’s widely-respected Farm Sustainability Assessment (FSA).

RECYCLABLE. REUSABLE.

We're also working hard to reduce our total packaging and increase the recycled content in our packaging - delivering a 10% reduction in packaging weight and increasing the recycled content of our packaging to 60%.

Lighter weight. Less packaging. Better for everyone.

Lighter bottles = smaller footprint. We’re making our glass bottles up to 25% lighter, except for Red Label and Black Label because they’re already very light.
