Making a positive contribution in sustaining our environment

1000 Olive Trees

With the worldwide growing concern for our environment, we are committed to make a positive contribution in sustaining the longevity of our environment for the future by reducing our carbon footprint. One of the ways we do this is by utilising the unused land on our factory premises to plant olive trees. To date we have planted 1000 olive trees to help reduce the greenhouse gas CO2 from the air and offset our emissions.

By supplementing a percentage of our electricity usage with renewable energy to power our production line reduces our contribution of harmful carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases.
