In February 2020 Ethical Consumer sent Bentley Organics Ltd a questionnaire, requesting information about the company’s environmental reporting. No response was received. Ethical Consumer therefore searched the company’s website in March 2020 for publicly available information. No report could be found.
The ‘about us’ section of the website stated that ‘we stand by two key philosophies; firstly that all products are Soil Association certified as a guarantee to our consumers of their organic integrity. And secondly that we are ‘Of the Earth, not costing the Earth’, as an integrated manufacturer and supplier we are able to offer our customers a better value product – we believe organic products should be reasonably, not premium, priced’.
In addition, Soil Association certification means that its products were:
‘Not tested on animals and do not contain ingredients of animal origin; Parabens free; GMO free; Do not contain SLS or SLES; Free from petro-chemicals"
As a company with a turnover under £10.2million which demonstrated a commitment to the environment, the company was awarded Ethical Consumer's best rating for Environmental Reporting.
