A Greener Wise Foods, Inc.

 
Wise Foods has a constantly expanding "Green Program" at our manufacturing facility in Berwick, PA. Some of our current environmentally-friendly initiatives include:

  • All of our obsolete packaging is recycled into park benches.
  • Fresh water is recycled for other plant uses and eventually recycled for return to the city.
  • More than 80% of the cartons we use to transport our product are reused 3 to 4 times.
  • Through an alliance with our distributor partners, we recycle 1,500 tons of corrugated material (cardboard) annually.
  • All shipping pallets used in our warehouse and on our delivery trucks are continually repaired for re-use, and eventually re-cycled at the end of their useful life.
  • All edible manufacturing scrap, including vegetable oil which does not meet our quality standards, is recycled into animal feed or Bio-Diesel.
  • Energy is controlled and conserved through regular testing and audits. Wise is an active member of a "Demand Response" program managed by EnerNOC.
  • Employees at our manufacturing facility collect aluminum cans and donate the recycling proceeds to a local Cancer Association.

In addition to our current Green initiatives, Wise is continually looking for new ways to reduce waste and conserve energy. If you have any great ideas regarding how we can become an even greener organization, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact us to submit your Green Ideas.
