Valorising food waste and saving water
SAN CARLO’S EFFORTS TO VALORISE FOOD WASTE
Savoury snacks manufacturers have since-long implemented innovative technologies to make the best use of resources and eliminate food waste from their production lines. Our member San Carlo, a leading savoury snacks manufacturer based in Italy, is for instance already valorising all its by-products: 100% of the potato peels are transformed into energy in third party biogas facilities - and 100% of bread-based snack residues are used to produce animal feed. In addition, the company has set an ambitious target to reduce by 30% the water consumption on potato crisps lines by 2025 (baseline 2020). First results already show an encouraging 20% reduction for the year 2021.
