Freshline uses several forms of packaging and packing materials throughout our supply chain. Some of these materials are made of plastics, cartons, or wood. To achieve our goal of minimizing our waste, we employ a Reuse or Recycle plan, when possible, and use environmentally-friendly materials, including biodegradables, as they become viable.
Sustainability includes using water in an efficient and responsible manner. Freshline has implemented programs for water recycling and improved processes to reduce overall usage.
Freshline is taking action to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We work with our growers on sustainability initiatives and have been introducing cutting edge technology into our processing facilities that improve productivity which in turn leads to lower emissions.
