The manufacturer has implemented this initiative together with Van der Nat Transport Opslag Distributie in the village of Giessen. The logistics provider runs daily an average of ten trucks to supply HAK customers.
The vegetable producer aims to completely convert its delivery vehicles into this sustainable transportation over the next few years. Additionally, regarding environmental issues, the company’s target will be reducing by 50% the carbon footprint within five years.
“We want to adopt biomethane to power our trucks. As a vegetable manufacturer company, it is nice to know that the biogas produced from the fermentation and vegetable waste is used to transport our own vegetables,” HAK director Michiel van Ginkel stated.
