Limehouse Produce became Green Plus Certified by the Institute of Sustainable Development, a nationally recognized, third party green business certification that indicates a company’s dedication to sustainable practices.

  • All food product received is sold, donated, recycled or composted.
  • Limehouse Produce is one of the largest customers of Food Waste Disposal, composting more than 70 tons of organic matter annually.
  • All shipping materials are recycled, refurbished or repurposed, including pallets, corner boards and packing materials.
  • Compact over 24 tons of cardboard annually.
  • Installed High Efficiency LED lights throughout the warehouse.
  • Integrated cool plate technologies into the fleet to reduce carbon emissions from refrigeration units.
  • The in-house truck repair division recycles all used motor oils and tires.

2016 Citrus Celebration 1.4.16

Over twenty of Charleston’s best bars and restaurants are getting into the citrusy spirit as they showcase delicious drinks, dishes, and desserts as part of Limehouse Produce’s 2016 Citrus Celebration. This year, participants were asked to get a little more creative and select from just four citrus items: cara cara oranges, satsuma tangerines, pumellos, and meyer lemons when creating their items.

Limehouse Produce is once again sharing more details on these featured dishes and drinks on their website along with recipes for people to download and try on their own. Patrons can also go and ask for the respected dish or drink at the participants locations until the end of February.

A panel of judges will be visiting the top five places from each category and select a winner for the Best Citrus Dish and Best Citrus Drink. Each winner will be promoted on the website, social media outlets, and to the media. NEW THIS YEAR: The restaurant with the winning dish will be featured on the side of a Limehouse Produce truck and the winning drink will be featured in a ½ page ad in The Local Palate.

Check out the entries here.
