8/9/18 - 5:01pm
2017 Sustainability Excellence in Manufacturing Award winner: The snack maker’s facility in Perry, Florida, generated about 5,000 gal of organic sludge daily. The processor worked with the state Department of Environmental Protection and local farmers to use the wet material for land application. The program reduced operations costs significantly while providing fertilizer for local agricultural crops.
