OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Marathon Foods has been working hard to ensure the impact on our environment is minimised during the manufacturing process. Since 1963 Marathon has continued to source local produce and packaging wherever possible, this not only supports Australian business but also reduces the impact of transportation and hence our “carbon footprint”.
Marathon Foods is well aware of its’ corporate responsibility. As a result of many years of continued drought in Australia, Marathon has looked at how we could support water conservation. We have worked with our staff to minimise water usage through more efficient cleaning methods.
Marathon Foods has a well established recycling process. All cardboard shippers from suppliers and work in progress are collected and recycled through a partnership program with Visy. All green waste is collected on a regular basis and directed toward organic composting for the horticulture industry. Our engineering team are committed to improving the performance of our manufacturing facility to utilise less energy, thus continuing our determination in reducing our company’s carbon footprint.
