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.
All edible manufacturing scrap,
including vegetable oil which
does not meet our quality
standards, is recycled into animal
feed or biodiesel.
Energy is controlled and
conserved through regular
testing and audits. Wise is an
active member of a “Demand
Response” program managed by
Through an alliance with our distributor partners, we recycle 1,500 tons of corrugated material (cardboard) annually.
Employees at our manufacturing facility collect aluminum cans and donate the recycling proceeds to a local cancer association.
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.
More than 50% of the cartons we use to transport our product are reused 3 to 4 times.
