On Monday the 2nd of October we will go on an excursion to Darling Ingredients. During this excursion Darling Ingredients will tell us a bit more about their company and show us around their site in Son. We will end the day with a networking drink before returning to Eindhoven.
Darling Ingredients is the world's leading producer of sustainable ingredients. Headquartered in Irving, Texas, with a global presence of more than 270 facilities and over 14,000 employees, Darling Ingredients is the largest publicly traded company turning edible by-products and food waste into sustainable products and is a leading producer of renewable energy. Our purpose is to repurpose. That’s been our mission since 1882. It sounds simple enough, but when you apply this to our world today, the impact is substantial. Where some people see waste, we see potential. We repurpose up to 15% of the approximately 100 million metric tons of meat that doesn’t make it to the plate each year. We recycle animal-based co-products and other natural materials into value-added products, such as green energy, renewable diesel, collagen, fertilizer, animal proteins and meals and pet food ingredients. We are continuously looking for new opportunities to innovate as we aim to be Net Zero by 2050.
This activity is worth 1 MyFuture point.
