To whom it may concern, 

After years of struggling to find cost effective, environmentally friendly and efficient uses for our production waste, GAP Organics contacted me for an introductory meeting with myself and my colleagues. 

My name is Tom Newton and I am the managing director of Coquet Island Shellfish Limited in Amble in Northumberland. Our business is involved in the primary processing of King Scallops 2,000,000kg and Langoustines 600,000kg per annum. 

The specific areas we needed help in were with the flat shell removed from the scallop in the shucking process, the soft waste matter from the same process and from waste heads and claws from the prawn process which were damaged and therefore unsuitable for packing. This product amounted to in the region of 20,000kg a week. 

Historically the scallop shells were sent to a composting site, which now go to aggregates but at a significantly reduced rate. We are also, in conjunction with GAP looking at other ways to turn this product into a positive revenue stream which will hopefully come to fruition in the near future. 

The heads and claws and the soft matter from the scallops were historically incinerated as animal bi-product but GAP now put this product through a Anaerobic Digestion plant, again at a much-reduced cost to us whilst creating a more environmentally friendly use for the product.  

Our dealings with GAP right from the outset have been extremely good. The level of service and ultimately our cost savings have been extremely good. We hope to continue growing our business in the future with GAP helping us to pursue our target of zero waste.

To whom it may concern

GAP Organics have proven themselves to be professional, reliable and extremely cost effective at Tomahawk, Quayside Newcastle. Working with their teams our staff now better understand the importance of separating our food waste from our general waste which is where it had gone until recently. Having dedicated food waste bins has allowed us to reduce our general waste skips and the frequency they are emptied, adding to the savings. We have a weekly food waste collection which can be doubled up when demand calls for, by simply requesting the additional tip. We are in the process of switching all sites to GAP as they come up for renewal, as we are now confident in their ability to process our DMR and Glass in addition to those other waste streams mentioned.

From the outset we’ve been impressed with the service levels offered by GAP and the commitment of their staff whether sales, admin or transportation. Whilst it’s currently impossible to recycle all waste streams we are happy that as a business our recycling is at the highest levels and we are delighted that our food waste is helping generate renewable energy for the North East region.

Regards,

Howard.
