Our Commitment to the Environment


Environmental Policy

Krispies Fish & Chips recognizes the importance of safeguarding the environment be it for ourselves or the animals that populate our planet both in and out of the oceans. As such we are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our business, and in particular we have made the following commitments:

Krispies is MSC certified
This means that wherever you see the little blue tick logo the fish you are eating comes from sustainable sources meaning there will be plenty more fish in the sea for generations to come. To learn more about MSC and sustainability click here.

Responsible sourcing
Where we are unable to get MSC certified fish (and this is not always possible) we do our utmost to ensure that not only our fish, but other food items including meat and veg are responsibly sourced and, where possible, local to Krispies to minimize food miles (and support local businesses).

Recycling oil
We dispose of our oil twice a week and all our used oil is recycled into renewable energy in a purpose built refinery locate in the heart of the South West.

Over the years we have worked with suppliers to make all our packaging recyclable but from November 1st 2018 we pledge to make all our packaging recyclable. Our bags, boxes, greaseproofs, cutlery, sauce containers and all our drinks containers will all be recyclable so we urge our customers to dispose of their packing responsibly. We are always on the look-out for improvements in our packaging so do not hesitate to contact us if you have a suggests to make.

Beach Cleans
As part of our commitment to our environment locally (and our love of Exmouth) Krispies are proud to sponsor the Exe Estuary Management Partnership Clean Ups. These are held twice a year in Spring and Autumn and are a great opportunity to rid the Estuary of unwanted and healthy waste. It is astonishing and frightening what we find! If you want to read more about the clean ups click here or if you want to sign up as a volunteer then you can visit the Exe Estuary Management Partnership website by clicking here.

Krispies is committed to ongoing improvements large or small and in the long and the short term. We are always looking at ways to improve our carbon foot print, to minimize food miles where possible and to using recyclable materials. If there is anything that you think Krispies could change or do better please do let us know, we appreciate your input as we never know what we may have overlooked.

Beach Cleans

Since March 2017 it has been our pleasure to sponsor the Exe Estuary Management Beach Cleans. These clean ups happen twice a year in spring and autumn and are vital to keep our estuary clean and safe for wildlife and humans alike. Images with permission of Exe Estuary Management Partnership.


Zero Plastics

For many years now we have been extremely conscious of our environment and have taken many steps to make sure that as much of our packaging can be recycled as possible. Now we have decided to take it a step further committing to making all our packaging recyclable, compostable or re-useable by the end of October 2018. So in addition to our recyclable boxes, bags and cutlery all the drinks we sell will be supplied in either recyclable cans or glass bottles and our sauces served in compostable containers. We are delighted to make this commitment to our environment and become plastic free and we ask you, are customers, to dispose of your packaging carefully and in a manner that ensures it will be recycled.

We would also invite any suggestions that you might have that could further improve our carbon footprint, we welcome input and ideas because this beautiful town, beach and estuary belong to us all and it’s our collective responsibility to look after it and treat it with the respect it deserves.
