Product modifications and enhancements reduce environmental impact without sacrificing same, trusted heat performance
Chicago, IL /PRNewswire/ - Sterno Products, the name synonymous with quality and performance in portable food warming for over 100 years, announced today at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, that it is going greener with a commitment to reduce the company's overall carbon footprint associated with keeping food hot. The initiative, which will introduce redesigned chafing fuel cans that use less steel, cardboard and non-renewable resources, aims to reduce Sterno's environmental impact from landfill waste to greenhouse gas emissions, while still producing the same great products that customers rely on.
"Over the past decade we've achieved a number of firsts as a company on the environmental front that we're proud of – from first to having USDA Biopreferred Ethanol to UL Validated for Clean Emissions," said Craig Carnes, President of Sterno Products. "But we don't want to stop there. As a leader in the industry, we are investing in additional steps to reduce our carbon footprint while maintaining the quality and performance of Sterno chafing fuels.
Through examination of its bigger supply chain, Sterno was able to make an impact on its material sourcing and selection by re-engineering and enhancing its chafing fuels to create a more efficient packaging design, which reduces waste, and limits the number of trucks on the road. Here is a closer look at how the brand is making a positive impact:
