Ferguson Plarre’s Bakehouse Sustainability

Our great sustainable baking story is COMING SOON...

That doesn't mean we haven't started though! We've been green for a long time and we can't wait to tell you about what we've been up to. From solar power that helps to bake our pies to heat reclaim, water reclaim, plant based food innovation, tree planting and more....our fully delicious sustainable story will be available here soon. We are committed to leaving this world as we found it and we always have future generations front of mind. Having built a world-class sustainable baking facility and made significant reductions in our overall environmental impact, our challenge now is to maintain this energy and drive to identify further opportunities to improve. From packaging, to water and energy efficient bakery design, we look for opportunities to reduce our environmental footprint. We also try to encourage awareness of how we can each improve our world. Sustaining generations takes more than quality products and services. It takes personal responsibility, innovation and a willingness to think of new ways to do business.

Our position on Global Warming

With all of the debate and statistics thrown around in the media, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. At Ferguson Plarre, we’ve simply acknowledged that humankind has most likely had a negative impact on the environment. You don’t need to be a scientist to see this. Having been around for over 100 years, we also have a relatively unique business perspective on the importance of what the future holds for us and our families. We’ve simply decided that it’s our job to do what we can to ensure our families inherit a world that is in better shape than if we’d done nothing.

The Ferguson Plarre forest

In 2007 we started planting the Ferguson Plarre forest with our offset partners Greenfleet. Our forests now include over 40,000 trees and while they’re doing a great job of turning CO2 into oxygen, they’re also helping to support our natural Australian fauna and reducing soil erosion.

Sun Baked - Baking with solar energy!

Since 2018, Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses have been baking with the power of the sun. During the summer months, over 60% of our peak energy is drawn directly from the sun. Thousands of roof panels were installed in 2018 helping to take the Gold Banksia Award winning bakery to the next level.
