A major company in the food sector, belonging to the confectionery macro category, and specialised in the production of 100% vegetable ice cream, wanted to integrate the principles of the circular economy into its business model, valorising its production waste in the production of energy.
The company’s aim was to verify the possibility of valorising its organic waste by evaluating the market and sales opportunities, instead of continuing to manage it as waste with high management costs
What were the results obtained?
- Thanks to the activities of Sfridoo’s technicians, the company was able to use its organic waste for energy recovery.
- The company was able to classify its waste as a by-product, consequently eliminating its organic waste production on the annual accounts.
- With the support of Sfridoo’s team of experts, the company optimised its production process as well as reducing all disposal, administrative and waste management, costs.
- The difference between the operation’s costs and revenues allowed the company to generate an economic benefit of 138%, making its business even more profitable and reducing its economic and environmental impact.
