Waste Makes Watts!
By definition, the manufacturing of products creates waste. And ice cream manufacturing creates dairy waste too intense to send to the local wastewater treatment facility. Instead, our Vermont ice cream plants send it back to two of the farms in our Caring Dairy program, where it goes into a methane digester along with other farm waste - and generates biomass energy to power the farm.
Our manufacturing plants commit to measuring and reducing their environmental impacts in four performance areas: water, solid waste, energy, and CO2 emissions.
