Boots is reducing its carbon count with a range of sandwiches using mainly regional produce and Yorkshire-grown wheat. This is the result of a partnership between Boots, sandwich maker Buckingham Foods and Fosters Bakery.
Last year, Fosters invited farmers to grow a plot of breadmaking wheat and offered £1,800 for the best result. The bakery has made a long-term commitment to buy local wheat.
Miller ADM duly produced a breadmaking-quality flour from wheat grown by a Yorkshire farmer. This was milled at ADM Knottingley and baked at the bakery in Barnsley.
