Elite Energy; Our site uses only zero carbon electricity that is 100% renewable - sourced solely from wind, solar and hydro.

Elite Products; Here at Elite, we take pride in using the highest quality materials within our products along with being a proud manufacturer of no single use items. 

 

Our tin boxes are made from steel, electro plated with tin, many thicknesses of tin plate, grades and tempers are available, we only use the best materials and A grade tin plate to ensure premium quality in colour, strength and finish. Tins are reusable and are 100% recyclable.

Our bestselling Rice Husk is a by-product of rice production, manufactured from materials that would have previously been destroyed in the fields. The husk products are 100% plastic free (including the packaging) with any bellybands and seals produced from food grade silicone where required.
 

Our eco-friendly cork products are made from the bark of the cork tree which after harvest, are left to regrow before being harvested again.
 

Our birch wood trays are handmade in Sweden using FSC certified material and our Elite kitchen textiles are manufactured from 100% cotton, printed with eco-friendly inks certified by Oeko-tex.
 

Elite Waste; Scrap tin sheet and recycled tins are smelted (turned into molten metal) and may be remade into new tin sheet or steel for industrial or commercial use, such as the construction, fencing, and automotive industries. Tins are biodegradable and will eventually rust if kept in a damp environment or accidentally buried in a land fill site.

 

Rice husk used in our products is also bio-degradable and will decompose if crushed and placed in a compost heap. Any waste material from our husk, textiles and birch trays are gathered and recycled where possible or disposed of responsibly and in accordance to current guidelines.
