Green At Heart - Responsible Manufacturing

Being a market leader is about more than just sales. It is also about setting standards and leading the way in areas such as environmental policies, quality management, customer service and product development.

The Environment
Falcon's initiatives in this regard shape what we do as a company and we were among the first foodservice equipment manufacturers to be awarded the prestigious ISO 14001 certification. This demands that we must comply with current directives to ensure that any impact on the environment is continually being reduced.

What does this actually mean for customers?

We look to minimise the effect of manufacturing, operation and disposal of our products upon the environment. This commitment offers practical advice and easy-to-implement steps on how to save energy, time, resources and money while creating improved working conditions. Falcon strives to develop energy-efficient products that will allow the client to choose a "greener" option. Recent examples of this include our induction solid top and One Series models, a greater focus on electric products in general as well as our range of hydrogen-fuelled appliances.

Minimising Energy Use

We operate under the AFE Group's Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme (ESOS). In this we are required to monitor, audit and review with the aim to reduce our energy use. Falcon has a dedicated team who meet regularly to review energy-saving opportunities and has made a number of changes to assist in minimising the environmental impact and financial costs for our customers, business, employees and the communities in which we operate in line with the ESOS and AFE policy requirements.

Our recent initiatives include:

  • Replacing all lights with LED
  • Lagging all pipes
  • All lighting on timers
  • Passive Infrared (PIR) sensors installed


Our logistics partner R McDowell Haulage & Distribution are part of The Pallet Network (TPN), which delivers maximum optimisation of lorry space and ensures no empty running.

We've also been working with an external agency to develop our net zero carbon strategy. This project has identified a number of energy-saving opportunities that will allow us to significantly lower our carbon footprint, benefitting both ourselves and our customers in terms of net zero calculations.

Focus on Quality
Quality is the driving force behind everything we do – of product, of service and of people. Falcon was also one of the initial foodservice manufacturers in the UK to attain ISO 9001 accreditation for quality management systems. This certification indicates that our standards provide real benefits. For us, it means more efficient and consistent production - getting things right first time. While for customers, the emphasis is focused upon delivering what they expect - greater reliability, more choice and even better value.
