Conservation - Frito Lay Canada

Conservation Frito Lay Canada

Resource conservation programs have been in place in our Frito Lay Canada manufacturing plants for over a decade. These teams have led the way in reducing the amount of fuel and electricity that we use in the production of our delicious snacks. Through various sustainability projects and manufacturing process improvements we have been able to dramatically reduce our energy impact on the planet. Our progress to date includes:

  • We have reduced our electricity consumption by more than 15% since 1999 for every unit of food we produce;
  • We have reduced our manufacturing fuel consumption by more than 20% since 1999 for every unit of food we produce;
  • We are using heat recovery systems at all of our plants to capture waste heat from the exhaust of manufacturing line. The collected heat is used to dry potato starch, heat water or oil used in our cooking processes, and warm buildings, which reduces overall energy consumption in each facility.

In 2009, we opened a new environmentally sustainable distribution centre facility in Surrey, British Colombia. This distribution centre is a LEED Silver-certified facility and serves as a model for the rest of our facilities through innovations in green power, alternative lighting, energy efficiency standards and environmentally-conscious construction choices. Continuing this journey, we moved into a new LEED Gold-certified Headquarters facility in Mississauga, Ontario in early 2011. As we make improvements to the rest of our sites, we anticipate that these will be the first of many to earn LEED certification.
