The word sustainability is bandied about so much that it’s in danger of losing all meaning, but not at Garlic Solutions! We have nine reasons that show why sustainability is a way of life here, and not just a buzzword.
We work exclusively with certified growers and suppliers. This assures us of: quality, i.e. pure, without additives and quantity for a fair price and under good working conditions. Our goal is to make everyone involved happy.
2. Reducing the use of plastic
In addition, by 2022, we have taken a big step towards reducing plastic packaging. For example, we now supply 87% less plastic by using flowpacks instead of jars.
We process almost all of our products. We process most of our residual products into another product. What is left over is processed into biogas.
Together with an entrepreneur from the north of our country, we want to transform garlic peelings into tabletops and laminate.
Our packaging is recyclable.
6. Save energy
We are working on the possibility of using released heat from our cooling system for our central heating system. We also had maintenance carried out on our central heating system in 2022 and this reduced our gas consumption by half.
7. No waste
We make sure, among other things with our counting machines, that the customer gets exactly the quantity of products ordered. This prevents food waste.
8. Zero-Waste principle
We work with the zero waste principle. All our products are produced on the basis of final orders.
9. The future
We produce about five tonnes of garlic peelings every fortnight. These are the peelings released in the breaking and peeling process. We are working on the possibility of having our garlic peelings made into pallets. How nice it would be to have our unpeeled and peeled garlic cloves transported on pallets made from the waste of these products.
