We are proud to be working with the following charities to help conserve and protect not just the British countryside, but also the Earth’s rainforest communities. Find out more about our partners, their great work and why Dengie chooses to support them.
The county’s leading conservation charity, committed to protecting wildlife and inspiring a lifelong love of nature. With our main production site being situated in the heart of Essex and our inherent relationship with the land we understand the importance of sustainable farming. It is why many of our farmers choose to grow the alfalfa itself as they recognise the benefits this incredible plant offers to the soil, wildlife and wider environment. By supporting Essex Wildlife Trust, we are in turn supporting many of their projects which include a Barn owl conservation project, purchasing land to provide wildlife corridors and introducing Black Honey bees and Polecats back to the area.

Nature’s SAFE, one of the world’s first charitable living biobanks, is on a mission to Save Animals From Extinction. Human activities have caused one million species to be threatened with extinction. As animal populations decline, a point is reached when the genetic diversity essential for species survival is lost. Nature’s SAFE is securing the future of animal biodiversity by using advanced cryopreservation technologies to store cells and tissues from threatened wildlife species and working with collaborators to develop next-generation genetic rescue approaches using assisted reproductive technologies. This acts as an insurance policy to prevent and reverse extinction.
