Healthy Snacks Company Waste Management

THE CHALLENGE

A new customer for Mobius, manufacturing healthy snacks, had recently changed ownership and moved to a brand-new facility. The factory was struggling for control of their waste production and needed an experienced food waste management partner.

OUR APPROACH

Mobius identified the major outputs from the factory. Food co-product and cardboard waste was being produced in high volumes, but they were not being segregated at source.

We put in place a host of appropriate food waste services, even utilising the customer’s own compactor, which we modified to make it suitable for compacting the food co-products.

The cardboard produced by the factory was a uniform box, produced in high quantities. Mobius put in a reuse program, flat-packing the boxes and sending to a reseller of cardboard boxes.

THE RESULTS

The factory now provides 10 tonnes of co-product for use as animal feed each week and many thousands of cardboard boxes are reused each month.

From a baseline of 100% disposal, the factory has now effectively prevented the production of 70% of its previous waste tonnage. This provided significant value for the business with zero outlay on equipment.
