CSR

At Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V., we aim to be sustainable and socially responsible. We are continuously looking for the right balance between environment, people and society. Our focus is on ensuring better living conditions, both for mankind and animal.

Ever since the construction of our production facility, which was completed in 2008, Corporate Social Responsibility (or: sustainability) has been given a lot of thought. We feel involved with our employees, customers, suppliers, the environment and the society in which live and work.


Environment and society

A greener company in a greener world

Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V. organizes its production processes as effectively as possible, thus ensuring that its production capacity is used as optimally as possible. By being this efficient, we aim to reduce the ecological footprint - the global footprint of the company, our people and their families. Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V. is always keen on reducing the consumption of energy, materials and waste.

Some of the measures taken to enhance sustainability at Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V. include:
  • Our production facility is equipped with a Heat Recovery System. The heat from the engine rooms is re-used to heat water.
  • The building has self-closing doors. They ensure that less energy is needed to regulate the temperature.
  • The chilling & freezing compartments are built with extra thick insulating walls and equipped with a NH3 system. Ammonia (NH3) is one of the most efficient refrigerants.
  • The production facility and chilling & freezing compartments all have sustainable LED lighting.
  • Our transport fleet consists exclusively of lorries equipped with Euro 6 engines. The main advantage of Euro 6 engines is that harmful emissions have been reduced to just about immeasurable levels. They have also been developed to minimize fuel consumption.
  • All our drivers have received Eco-Driving instructions. They have learned to adopt a new fuel-efficient, safe, comfortable and environmental-friendly driving style.
  • We have installed the Munters Desiccant Rotor, which has the most efficient technique for creating humidity controlled environments in our facility.
  • We also encourage environmentally responsible behavior among our people. All waste is being segregated, and water and energy efficiency measures have been taken.


Health and well-being

All our products are checked on a regular basis. These checks concern nutritional values (salt, fact, etc.) as well as hygiene standards. These checks help us to ensure that our products meet the highest standards of quality and food safety, perfectly suitable for human consumption.


Solar panel system

Ready for the future

We do take our ecological footprint very seriously. This is why we have renovated the roof of our production facility. Applying an extra layer of insolation helps us to further reduce our energy consumption and, as a consequence, our CO2 emissions.

We have installed solar panels on top of our new office in 2018 and our production facility in 2019. This generates clean (green) energy, which results in a reduction of our ecological footprint. The solar panels on our office alone will generate approximately 31,650 kWh per year; enough for an energy-neutral office. All the solar panels together produce 285,000 kWh per year.


Our people

We not only promote a family feeling among our people, we also try to provide a comfortable ambiance and encourage self-development. We invest in educations, internships and creating optimum working conditions. The latter relates to working climate as well as machinery and equipment.

In 2017 Ferdinand Zandbergen B.V. opened its proper, brand-new sports facility. By giving our people the opportunity and facility to achieve their fitness goals and develop their physical abilities, we aim to bring them health and wellness.
