AGRANA Fruit Austria

Occupational Health and Safety

At AGRANA Fruit Austria in Gleisdorf we strive to provide a work environment that is as safe as it can possibly be. In our journey to improve the often-underrepresented topic of social sustainability a focus on occupational health and safety provides every employee with the essential opportunity for a long-lasting and safe cooperation between employer and employee.

In the past business-year multiple actions regarding traffic safety in our production facilities have been taken. Every reported near miss has been successfully evaluated and measures have been taken to ensure that the probability of similar unsafe situations occurring has been reduced as much as possible.

Reducing Energy/Electricity consumption

In accordance with the goals of the AGRANA Climate strategy, the reduction of energy and electricity consumption is one of the central topics regarding environmental sustainability.

Key topics are the efficient usage of the biogas generated through waste-water treatment in our own treatment plant as well as the improvement of production processes to ensure the reduction of energy and electricity used. To achieve this goal air curtains were installed in certain cool-storage areas to prevent cool air from flowing into warmer areas and steam ejectors are actively being tested on our production lines. Our measures have led to a decrease in total energy consumption of ~2,5% compared to the previous business year.

Reducing water consumption

As the production of our fruit preparations requires a significant amount of water for heating, cooling, cleaning and other usage, water is a key resource in our processes. This valuable resource requires constant monitoring and efforts to sustainably reduce our water-footprint using a multitude of actions.

The evaluation of the possibilities for recovery of water used for cleaning purposes for further usage is part of a project executed in Gleisdorf. Further measures to reduce the amount of water needed are constantly evaluated and our treated wastewater is fed back into local river ecosystems.
