The brand’s ‘Our Mission’ page mentions local ingredients and recyclable packaging but not much else, so Bertinet Bakery gets a middle score for its Environmental Report.

What can Bertinet Bakery do to improve its score?

The above benchmark score that Bertinet Bakery is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Bread Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.

As Bertinet Bakery already receives a top score in the Ethical Bread sector, The Good Shopping Guide encourages it to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After sending in its application, Bertinet Bakery will be offered the use of The Good Shopping Guide Ethical Mark.

However we would encourage Bertinet Bakery to gain Organic certification and improve its Environmental Report in order to improve its score. If Bertinet Bakery applies for Ethical Accreditation, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer some guidance on this.
