We have already made positive steps in this area targeting Reduce, Reuse and Replace initiatives and we will continue to build on this momentum. We have removed 20 tonnes of plastic from our business since 2019 and will ensure any plastic packaging in our business has a minimum of 30% recycled content. We have also increased the cost of our plastic carrier bag charge to 20p to reduce uptake. As more sustainable alternatives to plastic become widely available, we will continue to make progress in removing plastic from our business.

Our global FUNdraising programme has been at the heart of our business since day one and has been helping the nation fundraise since 2003. The FUNdraising programme offers discounted dozens for charities, community groups and individuals, making it easy for them to sell our Original Glazed doughnuts and make money for causes close to their hearts. Over the last sixteen years, we have provided 700,000 Dozen boxes to help the nation fundraise. Previously we have been delighted to support Teenager Cancer Trust Support, raising over £225,000 for this incredible charity. In 2018 and 2019, we joined forces with BBC Children in Need to raise £50,000. This was achieved through Krispy Kremers fundraising across the country, creating Pudsey doughnuts (where a % went directly to the charity), and selling fundraising boxes to help the nation to raise money.

Our people are at the heart of our communities and we encourage them to build relationships with local charities and causes. During the Coronavirus pandemic, we created a pledge to serve half a million smiles (or doughnuts!) to good causes. We continue to provide doughnuts to local community causes through our new store opening sampling program and also through a surprise and delight program. We will be restarting our in-store fundraising for charities in 2022.
