We are a Carbon Neutral Business
Here at SFC, we have recently been recognised as a Carbon Neutral Business by the Carbon Neutral Organisation as of June 2021.
To date, we have offset 243 Tonnes of Carbon Dioxide by supporting VCS certified clean energy projects around the world!
Which will reduce carbon emissions via the displacement of fossil fuels helping to combat climate change and sustain our environment for future generations.
As part of supporting clean energy projects around the world, we are participating in the Aksu Wind Farm Project - Aksu Wind Farm Project, Turkey is a large-scale wind farm project located in Yahyalı District, Kayseri Province of Turkey.
The project involves the installation and operation of 36 wind turbines, each having a rated power output of 2 MW, giving a total installed capacity of 72 MW. The wind turbines will be of Vestas brand, V100-2.0MW model, with 100 meters diameter blades. The estimated annual electricity generation of the project will be about 194,003 MWh.
The project will generate renewable electrical energy utilising wind as the primary energy source and deliver this energy to the national grid of Turkey. This energy will help supply Turkey’s ever-increasing electricity demand through clean, sustainable, and reliable technology. The project will displace the same amount of the electricity that would otherwise be generated by the fossil-fired power plants dominating the national grid.
Being the first operational wind farm in Kayseri Province, the project will help renewable energy become more
widespread in Turkey.
The expected annual emission reduction to be caused by the project will be around 118,737 tonnes of CO2e.
Our Chosen Charity - Candlelighters
We work closely with Candlelighters, who support families facing children's cancer in Yorkshire which is a cause close to our hearts.
Throughout the year we have several exciting fundraising events, including, Christmas Jumper Day, Halloween Dress up and Easter Hat Day!
We're always looking for new ways we can raise funds to keep on supporting this amazing charity that is very close to our hearts.
Our Sister Company - The Soap Kitchen
TSK are soap suppliers and ingredient suppliers completely dedicated to the crafts of cosmetics and toiletry making.

TSK was originally formed in 2000 and has grown significantly over the years before being taken on by Nick in May 2020!
In 2014 they made another huge leap forward to confirm their place as the best soap supplier. Having outgrown their previous warehouse premises, TSK moved to a much larger location in nearby Bideford. The Soap Kitchen is now 20 years old, growing year on year supported by amazing customers.
Our New Venture- Glass Print LTD
Our Director Nick is always looking out for new opportunities, from growing his main business Supplies for Candles to developing our Sister Company The Soap Kitchen, he's excited to announce another exciting acquisition that he recently completed, adding a third business to his portfolio.
Glass Print Ltd was established in 2002 printing on multiple glass products including candle glasses, perfume, and beer bottles for clients such as Ted Baker and the White Company!
They currently have a turnover of £1million per year and over 10 staff members.
This acquisition will allow Supplies For Candles to expand into a well-established glass printing business, providing our customer base with even more choice and personalisation when it comes to their candle and home fragrance collections.
With the acquisition of this new business also comes much-needed space, with an additional 20,000 square foot warehouse.
The new warehouse means that we can now provide a whole host of new products.
This strategic acquisition will cement Supplies for Candles as the leading candle making supplies company in Europe allowing us to have the largest range of containers, candle holders and much more!
This exciting new opportunity will also allow us to offer bespoke and personalised glassware collections to our major customers.
