Steenbergs has finished a project today to install rainwater harvesting at its spice factory. This is part of Steenbergs' commitment to reduce its water usage by 25% by 2025.
Steenbergs shares recent laboratory results for heavy metals residues of a random sample of its organic ingredients. These tests form part of our normal testing regime to ensure our ingredients are as good as you can get in the UK.
As he walks across the woodland, Axel discovers about the water processes at work - groundwater flows, streams and transpiration and how trees create clouds and flying rivers that flow across the heavens.
We've installed 11.5 kW of solar batteries at 11 Hallikeld Close that will store the solar energy generated by us, so further reducing our need to buy electricity from power generators.

A short nature walk with our newly planted woodland in Garnant, South Wales, that describes the habitats we walked through.
Steenbergs announces its new wood of 55,000 mixed native trees on 50 acres of farmland that will capture over 18,000 tonnes of carbon.
Having set Steenbergs the target of removing plastic from packaging in 2020, we have gone plastic free. We've ditched plastic seals on teas and stuffings, and switched from plastic to biomaterials for teas, stuffings, mulled wine spices and refill packs.
Steenbergs has targeted net carbon zero by 2025. We've just installed more solar panelling that removes 60% of carbon from our energy consumption.
The natural world is in crisis. What is Steenbergs doing about it? We've created a wildlife corridor and planted a sedum roof.
Steenbergs has paused with carbon offsetting because we believe it was making us making the wrong decisions for the planet. We explain the details of why?
Steenbergs was started in 2003 by husband and wife team, Axel & Sophie Steenberg. After 16 years building a successful spice company we thought it was probably time to recap on how it all started.
