The Treatt employees, who were joined by members of staff from St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s waste department, worked in three shifts to pick up litter, cut back trees and shrubs and clear footpaths in an area which had become badly overgrown.

Daemmon Reeve, Treatt’s group chief executive, said: “We have all enjoyed today; everyone has worked really hard and the result is definitely worth it. It was also great fun and an opportunity for everyone from different parts of the business to work together and get to know each other better.”

Andy Hobbs, waste development officer St Edmundsbury council, added: “We support community litter picks by residents and businesses throughout the year as part of our Love Where You Live campaign and we are delighted to have worked alongside Treatt tidying the footpaths, cutting back shrubs and removing litter.”

Treatt is a leading global supplier of innovative ingredient solutions for the flavour, fragrance and consumer goods industries, with an increasing emphasis on the beverage sector.
