Our focus on reducing energy consumption in our operations continues to yield improvements in the energy efficiency of our processes around the world.

Through our energy audit program, we collect and share sustainability best practices across our locations.

These include:

  • Optimization of dryers, ovens and freezers
  • Building heating and cooling system improvements
  • Lighting replacement innovations

The combined savings from individual projects at each of our sites results in significant energy reductions across the company (overall energy reduction rates are also affected by changes in product mix and volume).
