MAKE IT GREEN

We promote environmental sustainability, reducing the pollution and waste generated by our activities. 

High Temperature Pasteurizer System (HTST)

Established in 2007 thanks to our collaboration with Verinox Acciai of Trento, it remains an absolute model of innovation in the field of food pasteurization systems. Compared to traditional autoclaves, the HTST pasteurizer, that is a continuous cycle at high temperature, improves the sanitary profile and reduces water consumption by about 50 times (from 4,500 to 80-100 m3/week), reduces the temperature difference between provided calories and frigories by 24,2%, and reduces the bacterial load by 6 times.

CHP cogeneration

The cogeneration plants of the Biassono (MB) and Villasanta (MB) plants produce electricity and reuse 100% of the heat generated, heat that is otherwise dispersed and therefore wasted. Thanks to an agreement with ACSM AGAM, the Villasanta plant feeds this energy into the Monza district heating network, contributing to the heating of the city.

Photovoltaic systems and the use of renewable energy

On the roofs of the Villasanta (MB) and Sala Baganza (PR) factories, we have installed photovoltaic systems to exploit solar energy.
Since 2010, they generate a total of 1.2 out of 23.2 GWh electricity, contributing a little over 5% to the annual needs of each plant.
 

Induction and LED lighting

We use light sources that guarantee better energy efficiency and help protect the environment. In 2012 we equipped our five factories with induction and LED systems to replace incandescent and neon lamps. 

Label recycling

Thanks to our collaboration with the companies Avery Denninson and Cycle4Green, we recycle 100% of the liners (reels that act as support for the labels applied on the products), otherwise disposed of in the unsorted waste.

Recycled paper is reused and actively contributes to waste maintenance, environmental protection and CO2 reduction.

In 2020, we recycled 32.3 tons of paper from the label liners waste, which is equivalent to a reduction of 63 tons of CO2.
