The word sustainability is bandied about so much that it’s in danger of losing all meaning, but not at Garlic Solutions! We have seven reasons that show why sustainability is a way of life here, and not just a buzzword.
We only work with certified garlic growers and herb, vegetable and spice producers. We get quality (pure, without additives) and quantity for a fair price, and our garlic is produced under fair labour conditions. Our goal is to ensure that everyone involved benefits from the partnership.
We sell our organic waste to animal feed businesses or we compost it, so it’s not just people we’re making happy, but also cows and other livestock.
We are collaborating with an entrepreneur from the north of the Netherlands to turn garlic skins into table tops and laminate.
All our packaging is recyclable.
We are working on using the heat released from our cooling system to power our central heating system.
6. Nothing is wasted
Our counting machines ensure that our customers receive the exact number of garlic cloves they ordered, which prevents food wastage.
We apply the zero waste principle in the production of our chopped herbs and spices.
