I would like to take this opportunity of recording my thanks to you and your staff for the first class service you continue to provide to our business.

This is my first time in the restaurant trade as you know and the importance of finding the best  partners and suppliers to provide services to 31 The Quay has been a bit hit and miss exercise during our first year.

Not so with GAP!  Your company has proved a definite hit. The service provided by you personally and your staff has been reliable, professional, responsive and good value for money.

I look forward to a continued working relationship and would have no hesitation in recommending your company to others.

With best wishes and thanks

To whom it may concern, 

After years of struggling to find cost effective, environmentally friendly and efficient uses for our production waste, GAP Organics contacted me for an introductory meeting with myself and my colleagues. 

My name is Tom Newton and I am the managing director of Coquet Island Shellfish Limited in Amble in Northumberland. Our business is involved in the primary processing of King Scallops 2,000,000kg and Langoustines 600,000kg per annum. 

The specific areas we needed help in were with the flat shell removed from the scallop in the shucking process, the soft waste matter from the same process and from waste heads and claws from the prawn process which were damaged and therefore unsuitable for packing. This product amounted to in the region of 20,000kg a week. 

Historically the scallop shells were sent to a composting site, which now go to aggregates but at a significantly reduced rate. We are also, in conjunction with GAP looking at other ways to turn this product into a positive revenue stream which will hopefully come to fruition in the near future. 

The heads and claws and the soft matter from the scallops were historically incinerated as animal bi-product but GAP now put this product through a Anaerobic Digestion plant, again at a much-reduced cost to us whilst creating a more environmentally friendly use for the product.  

Our dealings with GAP right from the outset have been extremely good. The level of service and ultimately our cost savings have been extremely good. We hope to continue growing our business in the future with GAP helping us to pursue our target of zero waste.
