We contacted Waste Initiatives to discuss options to reduce our waste that we were sending to landfill and find a sustainable long-term solution. The salesman worked with us to come up with a system that would separate the organics from packaging while generating an 8 month payback. The system has exceeded itself to date by paying for itself more than 5 times over. The overall sales experience from start to finish was very pleasing.
Ninety nine percent of Masterfoods Australia products are manufactured at their site in Berkeley Vale, with many of their ingredients sourced from Australian suppliers and local Australian farmers. Masterfoods are passionate about finding more sustainable long-term solutions and they have taken steps to reduce their footprint by recycling water, reducing their waste to landfill, using recycled packaging materials and in the co-generation of their own electricity.
In 2016 Masterfoods approached Waste Initiatives looking for a solution to reduce the volume of waste at their site as they had an excess of packaged food product which was going to landfill.
The Waste Initiatives sales team went to site and inspected their operations to get a clearer picture of the type of system that would be suitable for their requirements. A custom designed product destruction unit was recommended as it was able to separate the organics (sauces, raw ingredients, finished products) from a range of packaging materials (from sachets through to 20L ingredient buckets).
The System was installed in early 2017 and has enabled Masterfoods to divert the organics from landfill and generated a 4 month financial payback. The system is saving the company approximately $800 per day and they have also said that it has paid for itself more than 5 times over.
