One of the most important companies in fruit production and marketing has transformed its production scraps into by-products for energy recovery. Fruit scraps were previously managed as waste.
The company wanted to change its business model by embracing the values of circularity.
The company’s aim was to verify the possibility of valorising its organic waste by evaluating the market and new savings opportunities, instead of continuing to manage it as waste with high management costs.
What were the results obtained?
- With the support of Sfridoo’s team of experts, the company was able to use its organic waste for energy recovery.
- The company was able to classify its fruit residues as a by-product, thus eliminating its organic waste production on the annual accounts.
- Thanks to Sfridoo®, the company optimised its production process and completely cut down on disposal costs. It has also drastically reduced administrative and waste management costs.
- The difference between the costs and revenues of the operation allowed the company to generate an overall saving of 73%, making its business even more profitable. Above all, it obtained a new raw material useful for other processes, instead of taking it to destruction.
