At Salumificio La Rocca, the sensitivity and respect for the environment are of primary importance for the safeguard of the territory in which we live, and it is from these principles that the photovoltaic system project was born, active since 2009.

The company also has an activated sludge tank to purify water, used in production and washing processes.

Heating and hot water are guaranteed by two methane gas boilers in order to minimize emissions into the atmosphere.

Various contracts are in place with specialized companies for the collection and disposal of food processing waste, and hazardous substances such as used oils and batteries.

A particular attention is payed to the separate collection of recyclable materials such as paper, glass, plastic and metals.
