At Ingham’s, we are continuously looking for ways to Nourish our World and our planet by reducing our impact on the local environment where we live and work.
Our procurement, milling and farming teams in Western Australia has been working on improving the efficiency of the freight network that delivers feed to the farms by focusing on reducing the number of trips done by the delivery trucks.
Over the last year, the teams have collaborated and implemented a new larger trailer configuration for the delivery trucks. This has led to a reduction of a total of 21 deliveries per month, or 252 truck movements per year, that service 15 broiler farms.
The new feed delivery configuration has resulted in a reduction of 71 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per annum, which is equivalent to removing 31 cars off the road in Australia every year.
Less traffic to our farms has also lowered the poultry farm biosecurity risks, decreased administration, and increased productivity between the mill and the farms.
Ingham’s is proud of its people for collaborating to create a better tomorrow for our planet.
