Sustainability

99% of waste is reused or recycled
  • At Ballreich’s, sustainability is not just recycling office paper and plastic bottles. We believe there is ongoing opportunity to be green. From repurposing unusable packaging for gift basket wrapping, to continuous implementation of energy efficiency techniques, we thrive to become defenders of the vitality and future of our planet.
  • Every unusable potato, peel, slice, and chip goes to a central removable bin that is taken out every 20 hours of production to a processor that uses the nutritional content as part of their animal feed ingredients.
  • We recycle all damaged pallets, scrap metal, and office paper, which is already minimal due to the efficient technology upgrades in place. “Returnable” delivery boxes are used up to 20 times before being recycled as well.
  • We recycle our potato cleaning water twice. First, the potato slices are rinsed with fresh water before they’re fried. The water is then used again to control starch buildup throughout production.
