Recycling helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It can take place in form of reducing energy consumption preserving resources and protecting the environment. We invest a large amount of resources, time and manpower to find better solutions and to alter the process of recycling and re-usage. Besides focusing primarily on minimizing our food waste, which is by far our single largest waste factor, our latest contribution in this area is to develop compostable boxes.

The environmental benefits of the recycle, reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills and combustion facilities, saves energy and water, and produces less air and water pollution. In addition, manufacturing with recycled materials saves and preserve natural resources, such as timber, water, and minerals.

Keeping this in mind, we are taking several actions to limiting waste from packaging material.
The challenge is converting as much as possible the material used in the supply chain, implementing the usage of Eco-friendlier packaging, Bio-based, recycled, and renewable raw materials.

Control points and evidence required to producers:

  • Waste separation and separated disposal of substrate, cardboard/paper, plastics, glass, crop residues/green waste, residual waste, chemical waste
  • All plastic (non-biodegradable and biodegradable) used to cover the soil has to be removed from the field after the growing season and recycled
  • Burning of any kind of residue is forbidden
  • Registration of waste flows
  • Quantities, type, and destination of waste flows are recorded and there is a company waste management plan for reducing the amount of waste
  • Biodegradable cultivation material (clips/rope/rings/tubular ties) used for maximum one cultivation season/calendar year is fully biologically degradable
  • Reduction of waste disposal compared to the previous year, resulting from implementation of actions from the farm waste management plan
