At FPP we consider the sharing of content and knowledge to be one of our principal responsibilities. We’ve created FPP Checkout to allow us to deliver against this.

The purpose of this platform is to simplify the consumption of content. With so many sources in both the offline and online world, it’s easy to fall behind on essential reading. Checkout finds relevant, up-to-date information and delivers it to you in one easily-accessible environment. What’s more, we also use Checkout to provide FPP category analysis and opinion whenever and wherever relevant.

Checkout is a platform designed with you in mind. And that doesn’t just apply to the content we deliver, but also the way in which we deliver it. We provide information that isn’t just relevant to the industry as a whole, but relevant to you as an individual.

If you click on ‘My Account’, you’ll be able to select the categorical content that is of interest to you. This will allow us to prioritise the content that we know you like.

We use a number of sources for the articles featured on Checkout. Whilst we won’t necessarily cover all of the publications you access, below is a list of the most common to try and give you as much as possible in one place:

Lidl and Wyke Farms team up to develop ‘carbon neutral’ cheese

Lidl and dairy supplier Wyke Farms have joined forces in a bid to create what the discounter claimed would be the first carbon neutral cheddar to be listed in a UK supermarket.

The project will see Lidl work directly with Wyke and its farming base to implement sustainable farming and business practices and facilitate the purchase of carbon credits – permits that allow a company to emit a certain amount of CO2 emissions.

Specific efficiency measures set to be taken included cutting down on fertiliser use, converting farms to deforestation-free feed or using low food-mile feedstuffs. Meanwhile, the carbon credits are to come under the standards of climate NGO The Gold Standard Foundation.

The entire scheme is set to be audited by The Carbon Trust, the retailer said.

Lidl claimed its Wyke-supplied cheddar would reach carbon neutrality by the end of 2021, stopping the emission of 22.5 million kilograms of CO2 per year.
