Green Initiatives


Cardboard Recycling – A byproduct of our recycling operation yields nearly 120 tons of cardboard packaging that is recycled each year. This converts to an annual savings of approximately 2040 trees. As our recycling efforts and process continue to improve we are forecasting a 5% increase per year in the amount of packaging that we are able to recycle.

Fork Lifts and Pallet Jacks – W.R. Vernon Produce has converted all of our warehouse lifting equipment to electric in an effort to minimize our carbon footprint.

New Construction – Beginning with our last addition we have started to use the latest insulation technology. Not only does it keep our cooler temperatures more constant, it allows us to run our cooling units less, which is a savings in the amount of electricity we consume.
