Environmental protection through Efficiency
Sustainability plays an important role in the management of Van Rooi Meat. Next to processing meat with the various Quality labels – such as Beter Leven and Milieukeur – van Rooi Meat also tries to spare the environment in other areas.
The realization of the new processing facility is a good example. The new building is a GPR building. This means that all used materials are recyclable and the building is energy efficient and makes use of sustainable power.
Less food miles
As the entire processing process takes place under one roof, Van Rooi Meat reduced the number of food miles, the number of transport kilometers needed to further process the meat.
Less water, less packaging
The reduction of various logistic streams quickly saves a few thousand kilometers a day. This results in less water needed – a significant number of crates and production sites that not need to be cleaned – and less packaging material needed to name a few examples.
