At Reach Goods the HOW is as important as the WHAT, and for us no end justifies unsustainable means. This is why we place sustainability as one of our core priorities and we push ourselves to create a positive impact at each step of our value-ecosystem.
Our frozen portfolio allows us to offer our customers 100% natural products that are not only simpler to use and consume but also have a lower environmental footprint compared to fresh products thanks to:
Our Circular Economy Practices:
Our Circular Economy Practices: having our production plant within our plantations allows us to compost all of our residues and produce organic fertilizers that later go back to enriching our soils and reduce the footprint of our plantations by decreasing the amount of external fertilizers used.
While a container of fresh product carries 20,000kgs of gross weight our containers carry 23,000kgs of net weight. In general, the ratio of Gross:Net Weight on our products is 2.2x; this results in an environmental footprint for fresh products of 2.5X Vs. our products (with the same environmental footprint a container of fresh products carries 9,000kgs of net weight while ours carry 23,000kgs)
Food Waste Elimination:
It is estimated that ⅓ of the food produced is wasted along the entire food chain. Our transformation process close to source, not only reduces 100% of the food waste at origin but also, by substituting fresh with frozen, we allow our users and consumers to reduce food waste from unused or spoiled fruits.
The impact starts at the origin and producing food responsibly is as important as the method of transforming it. That is why we make sure our goods are sourced from farms that practice sustainable and environmentally friendly farming supported by international certifications such as Global GAP, Rainforest, and SMETA.
Work and Source locally:
Our raw materials are sourced and transformed locally either from our vertically integrated farms or from local producers (less than 300 miles distance). This allows us to reduce the need for lengthy transportation and logistics that would increase the carbon footprint.
