Sustainability Initiative
Limehouse Produce is committed to our environment and sustainability.  We understand the importance of supporting local farms, strengthening the local economy and protecting farmland.  Our philosophy is to purchase the best quality products from the nearest possible source. This fosters a sustainable supply chain and minimizes the use of fossil fuels for transportation. We are continually searching for ways to further reduce our carbon footprint and our overall impact on the environment.

Local Procurement
In 2013, Limehouse sold approximately $2.5 million in local products from more than two dozen producers within 250 miles of our facility. We maintain long-standing relationships with several family farms in Charleston County that rely on us to market most or all of their produce throughout the year. We have worked hand-in-hand with these farms to achieve GAP certification and the highest standards in product quality and packaging.

Greener Fields Together
Limehouse Produce is a proud partner in Greener Fields Together, a sustainability initiative created by Pro*Act to implement sustainability practices that will improve environmental impact as well as ensure the availability and safety of produce for our customers in all industry segments.  The program supports local produce as well as waste management, efficiencies in transportation, and community and philanthropic involvement.

Ongoing Efforts

  • All food product received is sold, donated, recycled or composted. Our goal is to avoid disposal of any food product.
  • We are one of the largest customers of Food Waste Disposal, composting more than 70 tons of organic matter during 2013.
  • All shipping materials are recycled, refurbished or repurposed, including pallets, corner boards and packing materials.
  • We are integrating cool plate technologies into our fleet to reduce carb emissions from refrigeration units.
  • Our in-house truck repair division recycles all used motor oil and tires.
  • Office supplies are made from recycled material when available and we are continually looking for ways to reduce paper consumption.
