Unispice Making a Difference in the Food Industry
Sustainability is a term we all like to hear, but few of us really understand what it means. True sustainability refers to being able to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In the context of this blog, sustainable practices on agriculture refer to methods that allow for the production of food without degrading the environment or using up natural resources in an unsustainable way.
With more and more industries adhering to sustainable regulations, making sustainable eating accessible to people is key to growing the food industry. This is what has driven Unispice to develop our own regenerative system in our farms, helping us grow a stronger and healthier food source for the planet.
Here are the top 5 Unispice sustainability benefits of our unique production model:
1. Reduced carbon footprint:
Through our regenerative system, we help sequester carbon into the soil.
2. Improved soil health:
Crop rotations and cover crops help avoid land degradation as well as nurture the soil by implementing organic matter and monitoring humidity levels.
3. Enhance biodiversity:
We work around the biodiversity clock, only using noble products that won’t damage the environment and allow the migratory animal cycle on the land. Protecting the flora and fauna that surround us.
4. Food waste reduction:
Through supply and demand estimation, smart workflow recipes, processing and packing optimization, monitoring from seed to store we have built a consistent chain that promotes food waste reduction.
5. Irrigation system:
With our drip irrigation, humidity sensors, and AI (Artificial Intelligence), we’ve customized the amount of water needed per crop and their water consumption.
Sustainability in the food industry is crucial to humanity. Not only does it help ensure natural resources are used wisely and efficiently, reduce waste and prevent land degradation, it can also lead to the development of healthier and safer food options for consumers. And to top it off, it promotes wildlife and biodiversity conservation by establishing an ecosystem between the farm and the animals that live in it.
