The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection recognised Frutarom’s North Bergen facility for ‘voluntary and proactive measures taken to go beyond compliance in an effort to improve the environment and ensure a sustainable future’, and commended the plant with The Environmental Stewardship Award. The award was granted to Frutarom for significant reduction in industrial waste.
Commenting on Frutarom’s overall commitment to a long-term sustainability strategy, Jeff Lind, vice president of the health business unit, said: “We’re thrilled with this award from the NJDEP recognising our commitment to sustainable business practices. As an ingredient supplier, we are concerned with the impact that environmental matters on seasonal crops and botanicals. It’s not just a good business practice, it simply is the right thing to do.
“This is not a singular achievement, in just the US, but part of Frutarom’s global plan encouraging environmental awareness and sustainable business practices among Frutarom’s facilities and partners worldwide.”
