OUR PLEDGE & PURPOSE

In 2021 Ketel One Vodka has pledged to save and deliver ingredients for 1 million meals with The Felix Project, and raise awareness to the adverse effects that food waste is having on our environment.

Annually in the UK alone, we waste 10 million tonnes of good edible food and 70% of food waste comes from our homes (WRAP 2020). This is the equivalent to nearly 800,000 decker buses!! This comparison has been calculated by dividing 10 million tonnes of edible food (WRAP 2020) by the average weight of a double decker bus (12.65 tonnes) which equals 790,514 double decker buses - approximately 800,000.

Ketel One Vodka gave £100k to The Felix Project, because they believe that Doing Good Tastes Better. On top of this Ketel One Vodka gave £1 per Ketel One Vodka 70cl bottle sold in participating retailers in Great Britain up to a capped target amount of £64,000 (see terms and conditions).

To support the re-opening of the hospitality industry, and continue our mission to reduce food waste, Ketel One Vodka expanded its partnership with The Felix Project and gave £1 per qualifying Ketel One Vodka cocktail sold in participating D&D London and The Breakfast Club outlets over the course of June 2021.

As part of the Doing Good Tastes Better campaign, Ketel One Vodka will be sharing ways to repurpose good quality leftover ingredients into great quality drinks recipes. Visit the @ketelone social channel for more information.
