kenco recognized as a top green provider by food logistics
19 July 2012
Kenco, a leading provider of integrated logistics solutions, real estate services, and material handling equipment, has been recognized in the June 2012 issue of Food Logistics as a “Top Green Provider.”
Food Logistics is the only publication dedicated exclusively to the food and beverage supply chain. The Top Green Providers list was created to recognize companies in the food and beverage sector that have embraced sustainability practices as central to their operations. In turn, they play a key role in their customers’ own sustainability efforts while simultaneously helping to advance awareness throughout the supply chain community.
“The response to our Top Green Providers list this year was overwhelming. Despite a difficult business climate, the companies on this year’s list have proven that making a commitment to sustainability in their operations not only delivers a measurable return on investment, but gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace and in the eyes of their customers,” explained Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. “Sustainability in the supply chain continues to evolve as more companies recognize the necessity for environmental conservation, while new technologies are making it easier to adopt and quantify sustainable practices.”
“Kenco is committed to taking a leadership role in the area of sustainability and integrating related principles into our operations,” said Deni Albrecht, Kenco’s Leader of Sustainability. “We are honored to be recognized once again for our sustainability efforts at our food and beverage facilities.”
