Food Logistics Announces Westfalia Technologies as 2013 Top Green Provider

Fort Atkinson, WI — June 17, 2013 — Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the food and beverage supply chain, announced Westfalia Technologies Inc. as this year’s Top Green Provider.

The Top Green Providers focuses on sustainability in the global food supply chain with profiles of companies who are exceeding industry standards in their sector. This year’s list includes food producers and manufacturers, 3PLs and transportation and logistics providers, equipment manufacturers, and others whose products and services are driving sustainability from farm to fork.

“Food producers and manufacturers have a longstanding and unique relationship to sustainability and environmental conservation considering their dependence on water resources and arable land,” noted Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief for Food Logistics. “In recent years, sustainability has also become critical to other players in the global food supply chain, particularly transportation and logistics providers, equipment manufacturers, software and technology companies, and others who recognize that incorporating sustainable practices leads to more efficient, ethical, and profitable organizations.”

Westfalia takes sustainability to heart and is making strides to incorporate sustainability initiatives into warehouses and distribution centers. Our High Density Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) are designed with a smaller footprint allowing construction of smaller buildings and lower energy costs. The Storage/Retrieval Machines (S/RM’s) associated with this system feature energy savings with regenerative braking and smooth handling of pallets during transport.

Companies on this year’s Top Green Providers list will be profiled in the June 2013 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
