United Fruit and Produce realized early on that adopting sustainable practices not only benefits the environment, but also makes solid business sense — for us and our customers — by improving efficiency and reducing operating expenses.
Our company has reduced its carbon footprint and become more energy efficient through such initiatives as:
• Automatic refrigeration doors
• Efficient lighting
• Energy usage controls
• Shipments using RPC cases.
But we didn’t stop there. Our placement of advancement programs such as landfill diversion, and waste reduction have yielded further benefits.
As a family-run company that has been growing for generations (with members of three generations currently represented on staff), we view responsible environmental practices as both a smart choice for our business and the right choice for ensuring a better world for generations to come.
