Making efficient use of natural resources.

The global food system, including agriculture, production, packaging and distribution, contributes to nearly one third of greenhouse gas emissions. As a leader in the potato processing industry, we believe it is our responsibility to reduce and be efficient in our use of energy, water, waste and packaging.

As we continue on our sustainability journey, we will continue to find opportunities to innovate and drive positive change for our business, people and the planet.

Resource-Efficient Operations Spotlight.

Heat Recovery System

Heat recovery

Making our operations as efficient as possible is essential if we are to meet our science-based emissions reduction targets. Heat recovery systems improve energy efficiency by utilizing waste heat generated from fossil fuels.

Last year an internal cross-regional team worked with external experts to develop a Heat Recovery Blueprint for our facilities. We created a model for an energy efficient fry production line, which used wasted heat instead of steam across several stages of production.
