At Pineland Farms Potato Company we strive to enrich the environment through good stewardship practices that will benefit future generations. We have reduced our carbon footprint by purchasing locally and using renewable energy sources. Constantly striving to achieve conservation leadership, we were the first refrigerated potato company to use its pre-treated wastewater to make snow in the winter. During the summer months our wastewater is used for irrigating crops and the disposal of our by-products feeds local livestock.
Procured through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Program and Certified Fiber Sourcing, our product packaging is 100% recyclable. Our facility also has a comprehensive recycling program for paper, plastics, cans, used ink cartridges, office equipment, fluorescent bulbs, batteries and oil.
Through the Pineland Farms and Libra Foundation initiatives, we continuously support our community and help promote the Maine economy. Our charitable efforts include supporting a variety of local activities, events and donations to food banks.
