DOING OUR PART
Our factory in Morton, IL is now 100% landfill-free. We are able to achieve this by recycling pumpkin by-products and incinerating remaining waste for energy recovery.
Pumpkin waste, like rind and skin, finds new life as land applied fertilizer—except for the seeds—those are sold for wild squirrel food.
We have an extensive water recycling process in place for pumpkin washing. We are currently introducing processes that are expected to reduce our water consumption by about 75,000 gallons per day during the pack season.
