Celebrating Earth Day with the H.E.C.K Care Code

Celebrating Earth Day with the H.E.C.K Care Code

At HECK! we believe enjoying delicious food shouldn’t come at the expense of our health, environment and communities. That’s why we’ve introduced the H.E.C.K Care Code on the back of our packaging, a four-pronged approach designed to help you make an informed choice when you go food shopping. And what better day to announce it on than Earth Day?


Earth Day encourages people across the world to join the environmental movement and take actions to protect our planet and futures. This is something that we feel very strongly about, which is why we’ve now introduced the H.E.C.K Care Code on all of our packaging. So, what exactly does our Care Code stand for? Let’s break it down:

Health: We believe that health food and happy lives go hand in hand, which is why we consciously made the decision to make our sausages from high-quality, responsibly sourced ingredients, free from artificial additives and preservatives. With HECK!, you can trust every bite is a bite towards a healthier you.

Environment: We give a HECK! about protecting the planet, so we’re doing our bit by making our operations leaner and greener, slashing our emissions and reducing our energy usage. You can feel good knowing that your love for sausages isn’t harming the environment but supporting eco-friendly initiatives.

Community: At the heart of HECK! is our commitment to giving back to the people around us. Whether that’s sharing meals with our neighbours, sponsoring our local teams or being a positive influence in the community; we’re dedicated to making a positive impact where it matters most.

Kindness: Last but certainly not least, kindness is the cornerstone of everything we do. From industry-leading animal welfare standards, to helping homeless people find support, and working with charities across the UK, kindness is infused into every aspect of our operations. You can trust that every time you buy HECK!, your product has been crafted with care, compassion and a whole lot of love!

So, next time you’re craving a HECK! sausage, look out for the H.E.C.K Care Code on the back of our brand new packaging and join us in making a positive difference, one pack of sausages at a time! Because at HECK!, caring never tasted so good.   

To do our bit on Earth Day and encourage others to look after the environment around them, we’ll be heading out of the office today for a litter pick in our beautiful home of Bedale. What will you be doing for Earth Day?
