STS Approved

The Little Food Company has been STS accredited since 2002. The STS certification approves us for the storage and wholesale dispatch of frozen and ambient foods manufactured by others. The STS accreditation is mandatory for supplying the NHS and most local authorities including TUCO members. It allows our customers to purchase from us secure in the knowledge that we operate to the highest standards and that food safety and legality is the most important consideration in the day to day operations of the business.

Caring for The Environment

Everyone at The Little Food Company has been working extremely hard over the past few years to make our business as energy efficient as possible. To achieve this we have been planting one tree for every ton of Co2 emissions created by our vehicles and since 2010 have planted 650 trees! Whilst all of our distribution continues to be carbon neutral we actively promote sustainability amongst our workforce and recycle 100% of business waste where possible.
