Efficient manufacturing leads to less waste.
We want to make our manufacturing an efficient as possible, using fewer resources and generating less waste. Each step of the process presents an opportunity to continue to find ways to recycle and divert less solid waste into landfills. During the processing of the milk, there is a significant amount of Lactose, or sugar, that is extracted during the processing. Rather than discarding it, we are able to send this to the farmers- which in turn provides a healthy supplement to their feed.
By finding creative solutions to purchase items in bulk and use them effectively, we've also been able to see a reduction of overall cleaning chemical use by 5,762 gallons in 2017.
By 2025, we plan to reduce solid waste to landfill by 50% by reusing waste products creatively and efficiently.
