Increased waste and food wastage are one of the principal global environmental challenges. Orkla works continuously to increase production yield and reduce food wastage, a goal that is important for both the environment and Orkla’s profitability.  

Efforts are also made to ensure the best possible sorting of waste to achieve optimal utilisation. In 2015 a central programme was introduced to reduce waste at Orkla factories. The aim is to optimise use of raw materials and minimise loss and wastage.
