SUSTAINABILITY

Noi di Opi frutta ci impegniamo costantemente per ridurre l’impatto ambientale e rendere sostenibile la nostra produzione, attraverso tecniche e strumenti all’avanguardia.
 
 
Per noi l’attenzione verso le persone e l’ambiente che le circonda non è soltanto una teoria: è un modo di lavorare, sono fatti concreti e numeri reali.

Alberi piantati
Dall’albero al frutto…e viceversa!
Piantiamo un albero per ogni pacchetto venduto.
   
La riduzione della deforestazione è un tema che abbiamo molto a cuore, per questo abbiamo stipulato un contratto con l’organizzazione no-profit “The Eden project“, che pianterà un albero per ogni pacchetto venduto.

Tree Planted

FROM THE TREE TO THE FRUIT AND VICE-VERSA!

 

WE PLANT A TREE FOR EVERY POUCH SOLD 

 
Global warming is an issue we care a lot about. One of its causes is the massive deforestation taking place in developing countries. That’s why we support and fund the nonprofit organizationThe Eden project“, which will plant a tree for every packet sold.  

No Waste

No allo spreco

 
AGAINST FOOD WASTING 
Food waste is a dramatic issue. Every year tons of food, equal to 1/3 od the world production, are thrown in the garbage.  
We use fruit that would be discarded due to small aesthetic imperfections or size that don’t comply with sales requirements.  
 
AGAINST FOOD SPOILAGE AT HOME
By giving the products a longer shelf life, freeze drying limits the risk of throwing moldy or rotten fruit in the trash.  
 

Less emissions

Less emissions

We mainly source our produce from local farmers; in so doing we cut down the CO2 emissions due to raw material transportation.  
GREEN TECHNOLOGY
Compared with the current freeze drying technologies, our machineries patented by Liocreo use less than half as much energyand are the result of constant optimization in order to improve their efficiency.  

Carbon footprint

Carbon footprint

 
We calculated  the carbon footprint of our packagings by using LCA  (life cycle analysis) guidelines.
 
Emissions per pouche [1]:
Fruit0,032 kgCO2
Energy0,0224 kgCO2
Packaging0,019 kgCO2
Shipping (and others)0,011 kgCO2
 
 
Total: 84 gr CO2/pouche

Every single tree planted captures nearly  12.3 kg di CO2/year [2]. The survival of the tree seeds planted is equal to 80% [3]. This means that each pource  helps riduce  CO2 emissions by  9,8 kg/year,  a much bigger quantity compared to the 84 gr required to produce it. 

Towards an eco-fiendly packaging

Toward an eco-friendly packaging

To keep the crunchiness of our products, we need a very strong protective barrier in the pouches.  At present we can only make it by coupling layers of diffrent materials which make the packaging non recyclable.
However, we’re doing our best to find a solution without any compromise in terms of  the quality.
Meanwhile, we support the recycling of raw materials.
 The Green Dot symbol on our products means, a financial contribution has been paid for the recovery, sorting and recycling of sales packaging.
