Our Obligation to Future Generations
Because we recognize an obligation to future generations, Home Market Foods is committed to promoting environmental sustainability in all we do. We adhere to sustainable purchasing guidelines and proactively participate in conservation and recycling efforts. Through our corporate commitment to environmental stewardship, we also make it possible for our customers to join us in promoting a sustainable world.
We reprocessed residuals from our manufacturing operations into renewable energy and submitted other manufacturing by-products for composting, rather than submitting to a landfill.
A percentage of our manufacturing by products are repurposed for beneficial reuse as bio degradable commercialized products.
In 2013 Home Market Foods elected to align with the USDA and EPA’s WasteWise Food Recovery Challenge, a challenge which helps businesses to reduce waste through sustainable materials management. Through this program Home Market Foods will continue to advance sustainable initiatives.
