For Källbergs, it is obvious that we should work for an environment that is sustainable in the long term. That is why we are marketing and broadening our range of KRAV-labelled and organic products alike.
At Källbergs, we actively pursue our environmental work. In recent years, we have made big investments into our energy use, among other things. Fuel oil used to be our sole energy source, but since 2015 we have ceased to use this, replacing it with LPG and district heating.
Through investments into heat recovery, we have also reduced our total energy needs. In all, this has resulted in a reduction in our carbon dioxide emissions of over 30%.
For many years, we have also focused on reducing our discharge into drains. Since 2005, we have reduced our BOD emissions by roughly 50%, and in 2017 we will invest in an equalisation basin to reduce these levels even further.
This work is being carried out in close collaboration with Töreboda municipality.
A common question we get is what happens to the eggshells after we crack our eggs. Life cycle thinking is important to us, and eggshells are very good soil improvers. We are happy that for many years we have had farmers around Töreboda who regularly make use of our eggshells for that very purpose.
After cracking, all eggshells are centrifuged. The egg mass that we extract is concentrated, and makes for excellent pig feed.
At Källbergs, we were quick to take a stance on the palm oil issue, as palm oil is an important ingredient in parts of our range. We have been RSPO-certified since 2014 as per the “Mass Balance” classification.
We can offer our customers the RSPO “Segregated” classification, which provides even more support in the work towards a better environment in the countries where palm oil is produced.
