Food Waste And The Environment

It’s one of the most common things we all do: we buy groceries, planning to eat them, then a couple weeks later we’re cleaning out the fridge, throwing bucketfuls of food in the trash. It might not seem like a big deal, but that wasted food actually has a huge impact on the environment. If we could cut down on food waste, we’d make a huge dent in global greenhouse emissions. According to Forbes, making food for humans contributes to roughly one-third of all human-caused greenhouse emissions on this planet. One-third. Of that production total, 40% in the U.S. and 33% worldwide, goes to waste. That’s a huge chunk of emissions that can be eliminated with better practices. At Fusha Foods we’re joining the fight.

What Are The Advantages Of Wasting Less Food?

When we waste less food we:

  • Help curb greenhouse emissions
  • Reduce our water and energy consumption
  • Reduce our oil consumption
  • Save money!

What We’re Doing To Prevent Food Waste

We use a High Pressure Processing (HPP) machine to make our meals safe for consumption for up to 35 days in the refrigerator.

What does that mean?

  1. It means that our foods are made safe by applying so much pressure to the food that it breaks down a bacterium’s ability to cause you harm.
  2. It means that our foods taste fresh longer.

We manufacture our foods ourselves in our own facility (something we’ve been doing for over 20 years). That means from the time the meal is made to the time it’s HPPed is very short. It gets made, HPPed, and ready to ship to you all in our facility.

Fusha also utilizes sustainable and green friendly packaging for all our meals. Our plastics are fully BPA free and we encourage our consumers to recycle them after they are done using them.
