Andigestion Ltd, Devon’s food waste recycling plant in Holsworthy, has achieved double accreditation for both its quality and environmental management systems in its Holsworthy plant, reinforcing the company’s commitment to high standards.
The Quality Management Standard ISO9001 requires businesses to be customer focused, have strong management and an ethos of continual improvement. As an ISO 9001 certified organisation, Andigestion has implemented Quality Management System requirements for all areas of the business, including facilities, people, training, services and equipment.The Environmental Management ISO14001 requires businesses to actively measure and work towards minimising the impact they have on the environment. It is the principal management system standard which specifies the requirements for the formulation and maintenance of an Energy Management System. This helps to control Andigestion’s environmental aspects, reduce impacts and ensure legal compliance. “Achieving these accreditations is a major milestone for Andigestion” said Environmental Compliance Officer, Tom Brown. “Not only does it show our customers that we are working to high standards, it also motivates the team to continue striving for further success.” Accreditation of the Holsworthy plant comes just three months after Andigestion officially opened its new food waste processing plant in Gloucestershire following the company’s success operating a similar service in Devon. Both plants collect local food waste to be turned into biomethane gas which is put into the national gas grid for use in homes across the county and liquid fertiliser for use by local farmers in place of carbon intensive chemical fertilisers.
