JJ Foodservice installs solar panels at three branches

JJ Foodservice has invested in solar panels at its Basingstoke, Bristol and Leicester branches, with the installations set to generate more than 1,100,000 kWh of renewable energy annually.

Part of the long-term strategy to become more sustainable, the business has also introduced a ‘CSR & Sustainability’ webpage where it outlines its ‘Planet Plan’ and progress towards reducing carbon emissions. It is also on track to have all branches equipped with solar panels by the end of the year.
