We were raised on the farm. Raised to believe that the earth provides for all of us and therefore, be well tended to. So, environmental sustainability has always been at the core of what we do. No one ever had to convince us of its importance.
We have invested into implementing solar energy at our Swedesboro NJ facility, which will reduce Lakeside’s energy & electric use by 25% which equals to 2,700,000 kWh, which is enough to power 303 residential homes in New Jersey. Our recycling efforts with our trusted corrugated board supplier, has also seen 37,797 trees saved and 16,387,000 of gallons of water saved in 2017.
In our Australian operations, we’ve implemented covered anaerobic lagoons to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from waste treatments. And we’ve been an active participant in Australia’s full-scale life cycle analysis of the environmental impact of beef and lamb production from the farm to delivery in the U.S.
