Sustainability

Sustainability is more than just a word, it’s actions

These are just a few of the ways Tasteful Selections is working towards being sustainable stewards of the land.

Water Conservation

Leading-Edge Water Clarifying Systems

We have designed our operations to maximize our water efficiency.

As a company, we have cut down water waste by transitioning 2,000 acres from a flood irrigation system to linear irrigation. Linear irrigation is more efficient by irrigating up to 98 percent of the water in a more efficient and equally distributed manner. On top of efficiency, linear irrigation uses 60 percent less water.

The water used to wash our baby potatoes is recycled and reused

32 Million+ gallons of water recycled to date and counting

Enough to fill ~1,700+ average sized swimming pools!

Sustainable Packaging

Making recycling easier for you

How2Recycle is a standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to consumers. It involves a coalition of forward thinking brands who want their packaging to be recycled and are empowering consumers through concise packaging labels.

With the knowledge and well-depicted recycling information from How2Recycle, our packaging will now provide our consumers the best information to assist them in making informed choices regarding their bite-size potato packaging recyclability.

Microgrid

3.6 megawatt microgrid supplying clean power

A strategic move towards achieving energy independence and resilience while promoting sustainability. The microgrid is capable of supplying electricity equivalent to that needed for a small town or multiple prominent main streets across the U.S.

  • Generating our own energy, reducing reliance on traditional utility power sources.
  • Enhances our resilience against power outages or disruptions, maintaining continuous operations and avoiding costly interruptions.
  • Incorporating clean energy sources such as solar power. By relying on renewable energy, we can reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact.
  • Integrates advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to optimize energy usage.
