John Pointon and Sons Ltd is one of the UK’s fastest growing providers of Animal By-Product and Food Waste Recycling Services.
John Pointon & Sons is the largest independent animal by-product and pet food ingredient supplier in the UK. From inception through to today, we are a family owned business which has been providing a first-class service for over 40 years.
We offer sanitary collection services to a range of customers including butchers, slaughterhouses, supermarkets and food processors. Since our humble beginnings, we’ve been reclaiming animal by-products from the meat processing industry such as bones, fats, offal, blood & feathers and rendering them to produce high-quality fats/oils, processed animal proteins and biomass fuels.
We are a valued local employer and currently employ over 260 individuals in a variety of roles, ranging from process operatives to electrical engineers.
We operate to four separate ISO accreditations for environmental, health & safety, quality and energy management, and were one of the first animal rendering and food waste recycling companies in the UK to attain the ISCC global accreditation.
We are also an approved and trusted partner of the UK Government by providing logistics, rendering and technical expertise in their contingency operations.
