Don’t just take our word for it

Canter Eco Hybrid ticks the cleaner, ‘greener’ box for organics specialist

Soyfoods is the first UK manufacturer of tofu and a supplier of organic produce. Founder Paul Jones says: “We make a lot of our deliveries in London and other urban centres where high levels of nitrogen oxide mean the air quality is very poor. Anything we can do to help alleviate this crisis by choosing a vehicle which offers significantly reduced emissions has to be worthwhile.”
