Aviko issues Sustainability Report. 

POTATO processing company Aviko Foodservice has released its first sustainability report. 

The report details Aviko’s goal to achieve 100% recyclable packaging by 2025, and 50% reduced Co2 emissions by 2030. 

Mohammed Essa, Commercial Director UK & Ireland, Aviko, said: “Our way of doing this is by connecting people, cultures and varying tastes across the globe. We maintain a ‘field to fork’ mentality, whereby each link in this fantastic chain is a focus point for our business. It’s important that there is joy in what we do, for the growers, suppliers, customers, end-users, consumers, colleagues and of course – the planet.”

Steps taken so far include improving the quality of soil the potatoes are grown in and creating a cold store in Steenderen, Netherlands, which is BREEAM certified and claimed to be the most sustainable in the world.

Mohammed added: "With so many changes afoot - such as ecosystems deteriorating, climate change and the growing population – revaluating our commitments has been essential." 

The company, which provides a range of chilled and frozen potato specialities made by chefs, for chefs, has been operating for around 50 years.
