There is a much higher density of plants inside the greenhouses than there would be outdoors, and with so much foliage the plants absorb a significant amount of atmospheric CO2 and use it to carry out the photosynthetic processes of growth and fruit production.
We estimate that the 40,000 hectares of Solar Greenhouses that comprise the protected agriculture of the Almeria agricultural sector are capable of neutralizing the amount of CO2 produced daily by 250,000 cars. The 315 hectares of BioSabor cultivation can therefore counteract the gases emitted daily by an estimated 2,625 vehicles.
If there is one thing we do well in Almeria, it is optimizing water resources. Almeria is considered one of the driest provinces in Spain, where water scarcity is a limiting factor for agricultural activity. That is why in the BioSabor packaging warehouse and in our partners’ farms, various techniques are used to optimize the use of water and to make the most of rainwater.
In addition, BioSabor has a Waste Management System included in our Quality Management System, both in the packaging plant and in production facilities. We minimize food waste so as to do our part to eradicate hunger in society. In 2017 BioSabor was selected by AECOC (the Spanish Association of Manufacturers and Distributors) as a “Zero Food Waste Company”.
BioSabor is committed to the mission to conserve resources and use them efficiently. Given the activity of the company, food waste is not a trivial matter. We position ourselves as a Zero Food Waste Company by ensuring that food waste does not occur in any production process.
