Why we are different to other salad farmers
The Director of Salads@palmwoods is mindful of the UN's 17 sustainable goals to transform our world. Our company undertakes the following because we believe sustainability for this planet is integral to life.
Zero hunger - Near 100% of our prepared product that is not sold is distributed to Ozharvest, Gateway Care and Second Bites - organisations that provide food for the less fortunate in our community
Good Health and Wellbeing - we have a minimal spray program in place. We do not spray weekly, only when required. We always use natural products when we are able. We have reduced the need for harsh sprays by using an organic seaweed product that is applied to all our seedlings.
Gender Equality - Salads@palmwoods has more women than men employed on this farm
Affordable and clean energy - our major form of transport on the farm is an electric golf buggy which is rechargeable.
Responsible Consumption and Production - we offer our wholesale customers delivery in non-single use containers and we hope to move to bio-degradable/compostable packaging as soon as possible
