A Truck Load of Fruit

Working with our retailers, we are ensuring truck food and beverage shipments are not unnecessarily light. We estimate that this initiative is saving 400,000 miles per year from our US supply chain and cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 462 tCO2e at the same time.

Getting the Most from the Sunshine

We’ve teamed up with Symbior Solar, to generate renewable energy from the sunshine. In Thailand, we’ve been producing 4 GWh annually since 2020, while in the Philippines, we’re installing solar panels that will also generate 4 GWh of renewable energy every year. We’re estimating that by 2030, our Philippines panels alone will reduce our annual greenhouse gas emissions by 24,272 tCO2e.

Supporting Our Farmers

The livelihoods and well-being of our farmers matters to us. That’s why we’re working together with our partner Solidaridad to teach farmers the skills they need to grow more and earn more, at the same time as protecting the land and soil. As our farmers improve their crops and yields, the availability of high-quality fruit for us to source goes up too.

City Farming

Our employees across Asia have been learning how to grow nutritious food at home, thanks to our partnership with Rooted, an online urban farming platform that supplies everything from grow kits to seeds. In the Philippines, our Urban Farming Initiative has also been boosting the availability of nutrition-packed vegetables during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Water Recycling

Washing bananas uses lots of water, and leaves the water full of impurities such as latex from the fruit, dirt and insects, making recycling challenging. We put a variety of water recycling systems to the test and identified the two most effective. We now use these in 20% of our fruit packing plants in the Philippines, where we have achieved 500% water recycling to date.

Feeding Education

Together with Mahintana Foundation and the Philippines Department of Education we’re getting healthy and nutritious food to school children across the country. The Nutripan project produces nutrition snacks such as vegetable-filled breads as an alternative to junk food, making sure kids get the right kind of brain food during their time at school.
