As a largely agricultural business, long term sustainability and efficiency are key priorities for Rivalea. Our business is focused on reducing waste and unnecessary costs wherever possible. Employees are an integral part of the development of innovative solutions to improve efficiencies and implement sustainable environmental management practices in all areas from farming through production, processing and distribution.

Some of the key activities being implemented are:

Minimising transportation and handling. Rivalea delivers much of its product direct to the retail outlet or DC, minimising the distance travelled by contract transporters.

Investing in developing ways for more efficient use of water, fuel, electricity and gas.

Carefully monitoring environmental impacts and employing the latest technology to control them.

Rivalea is reducing its carbon footprint by operating two wastewater methane recovery plants. Methane is both a potent greenhouse gas and a valuable renewable energy source that can displace fossil sourced energy.
