EUPPA releases special report highlighting environmental sustainability, ‘green ambitions’

The European Potato Processors’ Association (EUPPA) released a special report highlighting progress made in recent years by the sector across key areas of environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

The European potato processing industry welcomes the green ambitions and wants to play its part in the shift to greater sustainability. For this, the sector needs an adequate and coherent policy framework to meet the targets set by EU legislators.

The European Potato Processors’ Association (EUPPA) released a special report highlighting progress made in recent years by the sector across key areas of environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

Kees Meijer, the President of EUPPA, says: “It testifies very well to the sector’s great ambitions on the sustainability front. The sector works closely with partners at each stage of its value chain – from growers to consumers – to create together a more sustainable future and promote social, environmental, and economic wellbeing across our supply chain.”

The report showcases a wide range of initiatives being taken by EUPPA member companies from farm to fork. These initiatives include not only innovative projects at the processing level aiming to optimize resources use but also successful measures are taken together with farmers to protect biodiversity and soil health as well as reduce food waste.
