CINCINNATI — The Sunny Delight Beverages Co. said all six of its manufacturing sites will reach the sustainability goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2013. The goal was achieved by the company’s Anaheim, Calif., Littleton, Mass., and Mataro, Spain, plants in 2009 — four years ahead of schedule, according to the company. Its other facilities in South Brunswich, N.J., Atlanta, and Sherman, Texas, achieved the goal this year.
“We define sustainability as ensuring a better life for the people our brands touch, now and for generations to come,” said Ellen Iobst, chief sustainability officer and senior vice-president of manufacturing and technology. “Our plants’ ability to achieve their zero waste to landfill goal years ahead of schedule is a testament to the tenacity of our employees who have embraced sustainability with a passion and made it a way of life.”
The Sunny Delight Beverages Co. is a producer of juice-based beverages in North America and Western Europe. Brands within its portfolio include SunnyD, FruitSimple, Fruit2O, Veryfine, Bossa Nova and Crystal Light.
