Lamb Weston / Meijer continues to innovate to achieve sustainability objectives for 2020

Potato processing company publishes sustainability report

The new Lamb Weston / Meijer sustainability report for 2015-2016 was published today. Lamb Weston / Meijer, a leading company in the area of high quality potato products, is well on its way to achieving its sustainability objectives for 2020. Over the last two years the company has made a number of significant investments to support those ambitions. Compared to the reference year 2008, energy consumption per tonne of product has reduced by more than 21% and potato utilisation has improved by 4.5%. Increasing transport by water and rail has reduced road transport by more than 6 million kilometres per year. Furthermore, Lamb Weston / Meijer pre-fries more than 82% of its products in a healthier frying oil. On an annual basis this equals a reduction of 9.6 million kilos of saturated fat through its products. The full report is available online at www.lambweston.eu/sustainability.
