Sustainable transformation process

Industrial canned tomato processing continuously searches to reduce its environmental impact by applying innovative practices, especially in:

Efficient Water Management: Water conservation and efficient water management are priorities in the Italian canning industry. Companies implement advanced water management systems, including recycling and reusing water throughout the production process.

Energy Efficiency: The Italian canning industry aims to reduce its carbon footprint by using energy-efficient machinery and equipment to minimize energy consumption during processing.

Reducing carbon footprint by reducing the distances of road-travel through initiatives such as working with local farmers, optimising logistics, favouring maritime and rail transport as a substitute for road transport, where possible and new storage and transport solutions such as light bag in box solutions for larger quantities of products.

Recyclable packaging: most of the packaging used for organic preserved tomatoes uses metal cans to guarantee the product’s cleanliness and safety for consumers. They are an eco-friendly option with low CO2 emissions compared to other packaging materials. They also can be recycled for an unlimited number of times. Glass jars and bottles used for organic tomato passata and other products are fully recyclable. Aseptic bag in box solutions principally used for larger items over 2.5 kg have an extremely small carbon footprint compared to other packaging solutions, and are very light to transport, leading to energy savings.

Waste Management practices by reusing the waste of unsuitable raw materials for processing towards animal feed or biogas production.
