Ciao – Il Pomodoro di Napoli is committed to achieve excellence in terms of eco-sustainability too. In the last 10 years, despite a significant increase in production, we succeeded in reducing our factory’s emissions by 50%. Let’s discover together how this little green miracle has been possible.
In the beginning it was the choice of more and more evolved cultivation systems, the birth of our ORGANIC line and the adoption of systems for the purification and reuse of processing water (which we have already talked about here) that allowed a remarkable modernization of our activity in a eco-friendly way, with an up to 70% of reuse of the water resources used.
A fitting reaction to our planet’s climate change that goes on day after day thanks to the adoption of increasingly eco-sustainable cultivation techniques. Today we are able to save up to 50% of the water used for the crop irrigation on our fields.
In order to preserve the environment in which our red gold is born, we also decided to explore the idea of a change of look to introduce a fully recyclable packaging with our new tins in aluminum: a material that can be reused indefinitely (as we told you here in a previous article).
But it’s not enough. The packaging used to enclose multiple packs of our preserves is now completely made of recycled cardboard.
GreenBoxX and GreenTray are the brands that identify our sustainable packaging.
Even our labels are purchased from environmentally certified and responsible FSC-branded companies following very strict policies that require that for every tree felled another one is replanted. We can therefore say that no plants are sacrificed to bring our products to your pantries.
And that’s not all. Ciao can also boast other important features such as that of having a tomato juice production completely energetically self-sufficient.
In recent years, solar panels have been adopted in our plants to fully power the production machinery with only renewable energy.
We have also worked about steam and gas emissions. For example, by installing an economizer that captures the heat from emissions (fumes coming out of the boilers) and uses it to heat the water with which the tomatoes for our preserves are boiled.
Adding to this policy is then the insulation of the pipes to reduce heat loss.
Fully recyclable packaging,
Policies against water and electricity waste,
Recovery and reuse of processing gases,
And an attention to eco-sustainability, from the field (with the respect to bio-diversity) to the dining table.
Only by analyzing point by point the green policies of Ciao – Il Pomodoro di Napoli you can understand the great care that our company puts every day to bring the excellence of our tricolor – white, red but especially green – on your dining tables!
With our commitment we also aim to raise the awareness of our artisan friends on these issues. We will do it with a clear, simple and passionate communication, always in the style of Ciao – Il Pomodoro di Napoli.
