Knouse Foods Installs Solar Power at Peach Glen Production Facility

Knouse Foods, a company known for its Lucky Leaf Pie Filling and Musselman’s Apple Sauce, is switching over to the use of clean energy at its Peach Glen production facility.

The cooperative company owned by the growers has recently activated the functioning of over 14,000 solar panels erected on a 19 acre facility owned by it. The installed solar panels are anticipated to generate more than four million kWh of electricity purchased by the company from outside. The power generated is adequate to sustain the electricity requirements of around 400 houses.

The company in order to save the available natural resources regularly recycles the materials for its other uses and it often valuates its packaging to lessen the quantity of materials utilized. The company saves on its fossil fuel usage in transporting its products to retail outlets due to the implementation of light-weight packing. The company also resorts to the use of recycled materials wherever possible.

The cooperative company has taken steps to reduce the volume of its trash by 80 to 90% every year. It has taken steps to follow zero wastage in its manufacturing process and sends the small pieces of apple to the beverage mills for processing them as juice or utilizes them to feed the cattle.
