Ella's Kitchen has been making 100% organic food for kids since 2006. Through much-loved products like their colourful fruit smoothies or famous finger food like melty puffs, they work hard to improve children's lives by encouraging healthy relationships with food from a young age.
We've been supplying their headquarters in Oxfordshire with 100% renewable electricity since August last year. Before we started working remotely, they invited us to have a look around their workplace, Ella's Barn. We chatted to some of the team about how they work and why they chose to switch to greener energy with Bulb.
Business for good
As a fellow B Corp, Ella's Kitchen is a company after our own heart. All Certified B Corps have committed to using the power of business as a force for good. That means finding concrete ways to be more ethical, accountable and sustainable in business. For example, the folks at Ella's kitchen have introduced a national food pouch recycling programme to ensure nothing left over from their products gets sent to landfill. Their team also dedicates 1,500 working hours each year to volunteering for charitable causes.
As well as switching to renewable electricity, Ella's Kitchen donated 53% of their surplus food last year to producing green gas via anaerobic digestion. And that's not their only commitment to going green. Like Bulb, Ella's Kitchen has pledged to cut its carbon emissions and achieve Net Zero by 2030, 20 years ahead of the UK national target.
While we were at Ella's Barn, our Clem took the opportunity to talk to the team about where their energy comes from, and why the switch to 100% renewable electricity is important.
Cooking with kids
We know these are strange times for every business (and every family). But with more of us at home more often, now's a great time to get creative with our cooking. The folks at Ella's Kitchen have published a brilliant range of cookbooks to help families get excited about preparing healthy food and eating together. You can even download recipes to try right away, like these Golden Treasure Muffins, made with butternut squash.
We're proud to power Ella's Kitchen and we love seeing first hand how our members put their energy to good use.
