Enviro-mental

The BurgerFuel position on social and environmental concerns started at its inception in 1995, when summers were warm on the globe – not due to global warming.

The BurgerFuel position on social and environmental concerns started at its inception in 1995, when summers were warm on the globe – not due to global warming.  As part of our continuing “enviro-mental” and sustainability ethos, our packaging has been designed and manufactured to strict BurgerFuel specifications and requirements.

Serious consideration for the environment has been taken into account when selecting the materials used in all our packaging. A lot of tree hugging went into the design of the chip cups, side cartons, Doofers and burger bags.

After going through a Woodstock load of hippies, BurgerFuel finally developed some excellent recycled, recyclable and biodegradable packaging. We even made sure the ink is made from a natural vegetable oil base sourced from renewable resources, instead of the usual mineral oil solvent stuff. Even our aioli punnets are made from biodegradable corn starch.

We then did a little survey in our restaurants and asked people whether or not they’d only come to us if we were more environmentally friendly than the other guys. The survey results came back with a resounding “not really”. But we know and they know it’s the right thing to do.

In addition, where possible our frying oil used in our restaurants is collected after use, recycled and turned into Bio Diesel which is then used to power vehicles.
