Eliminating the plastic waste produced by the people who visit daily and work there has been one of the fundamental actions undertaken by the Company to be increasingly sustainable. For this reason, between 2018 and 2019, Farmigea adopted a plastic-free company policy, intervening on the canteen service and on the supply of drinking water in the Company.

A SUSTAINABLE CANTEEN

The Project

The canteen, which supplies around 26,000 meals a year, was the site of the company that produced most of the plastic waste. Thus, to achieve the plastic-free goal, Farmigea and Toscana Food S.r.l., a company with thirty years of experience specializing in the managed catering sector, decided to completely eliminate the use of plastic dishes and replace them with eco-sustainable dishes.

Virtuous materials

The plates, glasses and cutlery used in the company canteen are completely biodegradable and compostable. Since they are made of sugar cane fibers, corn starch and cellulose pulp. In this way, not only can pollution be reduced, but it also helps to close the positive cycle of waste recycling. During 2020 this material will be further replaced with a made in Italy bipolastic, evolution from cellulose.

In addition, since attention to environmental issues does not stop at reducing waste only. The food offered is completely organic and from zero kilometer supply chain and surpluses are recovered. The cleaning products are certified with low environmental impact and are not harmful to the person.

Bere sostenibile

Sustainable drinking

Not only the company canteen but also the other parts of the company have switched to the plastic free model. In fact, thanks to the adoption of IoBevo ® technology, the plastic bottles have been eliminated and replaced with water bottles which can be filled using special columns. Furthermore, as in the canteen, compostable glasses have replaced the old plastic glasses, thus eliminating almost all the disposable plastic consumed in offices.
