Frutarom Receives Environmental Stewardship Award

NORTH BERGEN, N.J.The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) granted Frutarom USAs North Bergen facility the Environmental Stewardship Award for significant reduction in industrial waste at the plant.

NJDEP recognized the facility for voluntary and proactive measures taken to go beyond compliance in an effort to improve the environment and ensure a sustainable future." The North Bergen facility is now categorized on the NJDEPs website and will be used as a model for environmental compliance by other corporations looking to make similar improvements.

The Environmental Stewardship Initiative is a New Jersey-based program showcasing achievements by members of the community. It serves as an information resource to encourage others and offers a way to acknowledge companies that are environmentally proactive and exceed regulatory requirements.

Commenting on Frutaroms overall commitment to a long-term sustainability strategy, Jeff Lind, vice president of the Health Business Unit, said: Were thrilled with this award from the NJDEP recognizing our commitment to sustainable business practices. As an ingredient supplier we are concerned with the impact that environmental matters on seasonal crops and botanicals. Its not just a good business practice; it simply is the right thing to do. This is not a singular achievement, in just the U.S., but part of Frutaroms global plan encouraging environmental awareness and sustainable business practices among Frutaroms facilities and partners worldwide."

The recognition from the NJDEP in the United States mirrors Frutaroms efforts globally. Other Frutarom sites, including its pioneering Wädenswill, Switzerland, biogas facility, have received commendations from recognized agencies in acknowledgement of these efforts.
