Reducing carbon footprint in a competitive world
Producing potato chips or french fries requires a substantial amount of energy. Yes, we are the first to confirm this statement. There is nothing we can do about this physical fact. However, we can influence that energy is used efficiently and we can also guide you in steps to save energy.
In this newsletter you can read more about our best tips to save energy if you are producing potato chips, review water usage in a chips line but also a look inside our workshop where the machines are built for Rosenqvists Food Technologies.
We follow our clients strive to achieve an efficient production process and try our best to support with advice. It is impressive to learn about your initiatives to save water, recover energy from frying systems, turning waste stream into bio-energy and many more initiatives. It is clear for us at Rosenqvists Food Technologies that the potato processing industry is determined to improve reducing the carbon footprint and environmental impact as much as possible. Efficiency improvements are important from an economic standpoint, but are essential in developing our industry to a sustainable and positive view in the society. After all, we want to continue to enjoy potato chips, snacks, fried peanuts, crispy french fries or a golden hash brown for breakfast.
