Edinburgh-based water retailer, Business Stream, has secured a new two-year contract with internationally renowned family-owned ingredient manufacturer, Macphie.

In addition to providing water and waste water services to Macphie, the contract extension, worth over £230,000, will see Business Stream provide trade effluent advice and treatment services, where required, to ensure the company’s sites remain compliant.

Macphie has been producing innovative food products, including bread mixes and savoury sauces, for the world’s leading food brands since the 1970s.

 Jo Dow, Chief Executive of Business Stream, said: “We’re delighted that our partnership with Macphie has been extended, which is a testament to the strong relationship we’ve built over the years. Macphie share our commitment to protecting the environment and we are looking forward to continuing to work with them to generate further environmental efficiencies.”

In addition to the support Business Stream provides to help us use water wisely, we also strongly value their commitment to making a positive difference to the environment and society as a whole – which is closely aligned to our own ambitions.”

In 2019, Business Stream launched its vision to make a positive difference to its customers, people, the environment and its local communities and since then has launched over 20 new initiatives to help deliver this ambition. This has included building partnerships with Business in the Community and Career Ready to provide volunteering and mentoring opportunities to school students; establishing its charity panel; launching its pledge to reduce its carbon footprint by 20% by April 2022; achieving ISO: 14001 accreditation, which recognises high standards for its recycling, efficiency and environmental performance; and introducing a wide range of initiatives designed to help support colleagues’ health and wellbeing.
