Lamb Weston / Meijer is one of the largest potato producers in the world. Their factories produce frozen fries in all shapes and sizes and for all occasions. This is done as sustainably as possible, both within the organisation and also outside it. The focus is on more sustainable cultivation, retaining the highest possible nutritional value and smart processing of products: such as French fries that are fried for a shorter time. Lamb Weston / Meijer sees it as its responsibility to provide the growing world population with enough food by continuing to develop new, innovative products and production methods.
Sustainability goes hand in hand with the creation of joint added value. In both the way it thinks and acts, the company wants to have a positive influence on shareholders, customers, consumers, growers and suppliers, and last but not least: employees. In 2011, Lamb Weston / Meijer started a sustainability program aimed at the issue of how products can become tastier, more sustainable and better. Modern technology leads to less water and energy consumption per kilo, which allows more to beobtained from the potato. In the period from 2008 to 2020, a 30% energy saving was realised, and thus 30% less CO2 emissions per kilo of French fries.
Within SDR, Lamb Weston / Meijer is also an active partner in the Heat Delta program.
