Lazzaris and sustainability

In Lazzaris, sustainability is not a temporary trend nor a label to show off, but rather a way of working, rich in values and a concrete commitment to a better future.

We chatted with Alberto Lazzaris, who currently manages the company, and explored with him the concrete steps that outline Lazzaris’ path towards a more eco-friendly production, with a long-term vision based on sustainability and resource saving .

Here’s what he told us!

Which were Lazzaris’ choices to improve the company’s energy efficiency?

In recent years, Lazzaris focused its attention on energy saving within production processes. Investments in photovoltaic systems, for example, made the company 50% self-sufficient to date, meaning that there can be significant savings not only in economic terms, but also in terms of resources.

That’s not all. Much of the company’s investments were also aimed at the new steam plant, another tangible sign of Lazzaris’ commitment to reducing energy consumption.

Finally, the conscious management of irrigation water in the company crops using drip water systems was another step forward for the company towards a more sustainable production, committed to not wasting increasingly limited resources.

How does Lazzaris face the recent challenges in the agricultural sector?

Lazzaris faces the current reality of the agricultural sector with honesty and pragmatism, aware of the economic impacts resulting from the extreme climatic events that have been affecting our country in recent years. The change in the costs of fruit and vegetables, for example, is not an isolated case, but the result of the pressures suffered by the agricultural world, first hit by extreme drought phenomena, then by heavy and continuous rains and hailstorms, which have irreversibly ruined the crops.

Faced with these critical issues, Lazzaris is adapting with flexibility and awareness to the current situation, always maintaining its promise of quality towards consumers despite the obvious challenges posed by ongoing climate change.

Are there specific programs that aim to raise customer awareness?

Lazzaris’ sustainability is not just an internal commitment, but it also wants to actively involve consumers. Think about some examples such as the glass containers of the products, which are reusable and recyclable, or the elements of some packs derived from recycled material such as the rubber elastic or the label paper obtained from the recycling of food waste.

In conclusion, in Lazzaris we don’t limit ourselves to follow the latest sustainability trends; with concrete actions and well-defined projects, we are trying to demonstrate that even small businesses can make a big difference in the world of sustainable production.
