Sensient Natural Ingredients uses natural resources intelligently, making sound, cost-effective decisions.
We develop improved strains of seeds to produce product with higher solids content. As a result, the amount of energy Sensient uses to produce one dry pound of product is in continuous decline.
Many of our trusted growers use drip irrigation, the most efficient technology for reducing overall water and fertilizer consumption.
Harvested products are washed thoroughly prior to dehydration; 100% of the washwater is used to irrigate nearby crops such as corn, wheat and almonds.
After field-fresh products have been processed and dehydrated, 100% of skins and shreds are used as compost to support the growing of crops.
Product is stored safely in reusable drums or recyclable packaging.
