How our bespoke all-in-one food waste solution helped a national food producer stay green and save money

We were contacted by a large national food manufacturer that required a bespoke solution to its waste and recycling needs. In particular, the company wanted all of its food waste to be dealt with by a single waste disposal site, as this created significant efficiencies within the business.

The business has factories across the UK which produce various waste streams, from factory wash water to finished, packaged products. Among its requirements were the secure destruction of finished, palletised goods and the packaging they are contained in.

At GWE Biogas, we run four main processing lines – heavy packaging, light packaging, glass and clean food – and this, alongside the market-leading range of services we offer, enables us to get the most from our customers’ waste. It also ensures we produce a high-quality feed stock for our AD plant.

Working with the company, we tailored a solution precisely to their needs including the checking of security seals, producing photographic and video evidence, witness destruction, checking of individual pallet references, discrepancy reporting and final load reports.

As with many of our customers, this company also required a zero to landfill disposal route which we provide as standard to all clients. To achieve this, we work closely with local recycling companies to find the most recyclable routes for all the waste we produce on site. Not only does this gives us a low carbon foot print, it enables us to offer our zero to landfill guarantee.

At GWE Biogas we have the facilities and knowledge to process all varieties of packaged food wastes and we are constantly updated these to ensure we retain our market-leading position. As they evolve, our processing costs come down and we pass those savings on to our clients.

Working with this national food manufacturer meant we could provide a full service that was tailored exactly to their requirements. We now manage all of their food waste and recycling needs which has helping them to streamline their factory operations and saved them money.
