Food manufacturer trims fat from waste

New funds to be applied to marketing budget

The appetite for growth of a New England-based marketer and manufacturer of leading-brand hot dogs, Italian sausages, all- natural chicken sausages and deli meats was increasing. The company prides itself on its active and generous community involvement and knew it could do more.

The business invited Consultants from Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) to review its waste disposal methods and expense.

With manufacturing plants exceeding 200,000 square feet, ERA Consultants were able to help the business increase its recycling activities and reduce waste removal costs.

Consultants focused on expenses associated with bin rentals, trip fees, environmental and fuel surcharges and recycling cardboard, meat scraps and grease. Among the improvements ERA found were multi-year contracts with price increase caps.

These efforts led to savings of $190,000, which the company plans to apply to its marketing budget.

Benefits of an ERA review

Significant costs cut from the handling of waste management — for years to come.

Centralized contracts to ensure that every division of your business uses the same contractor and receives the same pricing.

Make money through recycling.
