Our quest is ideal stabilization and suspension with ingredients that come from nature … in a sustainable way … using less water and energy.
Here’s one example of how we do it:
What begins as waste citrus peel from the juicing industry goes on to become a powerful, label-friendly ingredient, pectin.
We’ve even reduced our need for water in peel preparation. What little wastewater byproduct we have is recycled as fertilizer and fertigation (fertilized irrigation) to nurture citrus orchards and eucalyptus trees.
Once the pectin is extracted from the citrus peels, we pioneered a way to turn the leftover peels into BRASPOLPA™ sustainable food for animals. This trademarked nutrient has helped to reduce our plant’s environmental footprint considerably by reducing its waste output.
We’re also proud that it earned our Limeira plant an Honor Merit Award at the 23rd Environmental Merit Awards sponsored by FIESP (Federacão das Indústrias do Estado de São Paulo) in 2017.
