Smartleaf technology improves freshness and cuts waste in babyleaf salads

salads have a short shelf life and have been highlighted as a high wasting food product, so this technology is a welcome development in fighting food waste, which accounts for ten per cent of global greenhouse gases. Dr Scott Phillips, joint MD of JW European and inventor of the Smartleaf process, states: “It has taken us well over a decade and required so much determination from our teams and our partners; we’ve achieved something novel and exciting. We are proud of the Smartleaf bags produced through our on-farm model and delighted for this to be recognised in this year’s Queen’s Awards.”

Little Soap Company

Ahead of its time in 2008, but of the moment in 2022, the sustainable BCorp, Little Soap Company, was created by Emma Heathcote-James when she questioned why supermarkets

didn’t offer any choice of natural or organic soaps.

Starting on the kitchen table, Emma’s original handmade bars

were trialled in nine Waitrose stores in 2010, before going national into all major retailers, revolutionising the category – making pure natural soap now the norm, not the niche. After discovering bathrooms generate 63.7% of the home’s annual plastic waste, and liquid bathroom products feature on average 80% water, Eco Warrior launched in 2019. These award-winning products formulate traditionally bottled liquids into bar form. Soap is no longer soap, with job specific bars for hands, face, body, shave and shampoo creating plastic-free swaps for everyday bathroom products that are as good as, if not better, than their usual liquid counterparts.

As well as removing many of the stumbling blocks to international export, the K-Set brings substantial time, cost and ESG savings. As of March 2022, Kaseum had sold more than 450 K-Set tools and over 5,000 PCMs worldwide.
