Biowise Limited (T/A Wastewise) has entered into a five-year contract to supply over 40k tonnes per annum of its BSI PAS 100 certified compost to Vital Earth Sales Ltd, who, with headquarters in Doncaster, produce the largest range of peat free products in the UK, including soil improvers, growing media and topsoil.
Wastewise operates three composting facilities across the North of England processing over 200,000 tonnes per annum of organic waste, including food and garden waste. The 40k tonnes of compost, representing approx. 80% of their total annual tonnage, will be supplied from a combination of all three sites.
Market testing has been running since summer 2019 involving extensive mixing trials to find the right product blends. The product, under the brand name SupaGrow, is available in large bulk bags and 20L sealed bags nationwide in builders’ merchants, garden centres and retail outlets.
Sam Robinson, Managing Director Vital Earth Sales Ltd comments: “Although we are experts in producing topsoil’s and soil improvers, this agreement allows us to manufacturer the best peat-free topsoil in the market. Working with Wastewise provides the assurance that our compost supply chain will remain not only constant but of a consistently high standard for a number of years to come ensuring certainty of supply for our customers.”
