OPERATIONS
We believe that onsite
energy generation provides an
important pathway to lower
our carbon footprint. "
Joby Rumiano, Rumiano Cheese Company
story all the way back to the farms and field, we are leaving too
much for their discretion to find fault or criticize, " Crave said.
He also said in the future more efficient boilers will be
another method of improving efficiency.
EVALUATING ENERGY USE
Rumiano Cheese Company's facility in Crescent City, Calif.,
has worked with its electricity supplier, Pacific Power and
Cascade Energy, to study the facility and equipment for
maximum efficiency, said co-owner Joby Rumiano. This led
to the installation of more energy-efficient lighting, variable
frequency drives, and new insulated walk-in coolers with a new
compressor and evaporator, along with thermographic imaging.
The company heats its water with a steam system using
three boilers, one firetube and two steam generators. This
process allows the entire facility to run using less fuel as
the firetube boiler does most of the heating while one steam
generator is in low fire and the other is on standby.
Solar panels at Leprino Foods, Denver. The company is
investing $50 million by 2025 in projects that will optimize
plant operations and reduce energy use.
GEN Z'S RISING ESG STANDARDS
Sustainability is higher on the list of priorities for
younger consumers, according to data from Morning
Consult. The Washington-based global intelligence
company found Gen Z shoppers are nearly
twice as likely as baby boomers to consider a
product's environmental impact.
More than two-thirds of Gen Z respondents surveyed
by Morning Consult said sustainability has at
least some impact on their food and beverage choices,
including 32% who said it has a major impact.
Morning Consult found Gen Z consumers are
more likely to engage in a range of core sustainability
actions, like composting, recycling and
purchasing imperfect produce. Still, they're more
concerned about what companies are doing than
what they themselves are doing.
More than half of Gen Z respondents surveyed
by the company said they actively invest time and
energy into researching products and learning
about sustainability initiatives.
Reducing water and industrial food waste,
committing to be emissions-free and introducing
sustainable or regenerative farming practices
are among the top actions that consumers want
brands to take.
" There's an accountability that Gen Z is looking
for from any brand they're buying from, whether
it's clothing or a food product, " said Mark Stevens,
spokesperson for SIAL America. " They want to understand
where it comes from and how it was produced. "
