Supporting the local economy is a key tenant of our company’s mission
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Viridiun, a leading provider of food recycling services, today announced plans to build feed mills across multiple states, creating dozens of jobs and supporting economic growth in local communities. Viridiun has been recognized as the organics recycling industry leader, driving innovation and operational excellence standards. The company currently works with multiple major grocery store chains to convert their organics, excess fruit and vegetable material, into a resource for both the stores and farmers.
Today, the industry giant recycles almost three million pounds of organic material per week. That number will increase as they continue to build infrastructure. The company has created 50 new jobs over the last 18 months and will continue to add to their team with the completion of these new facilities. Each mill is strategically placed bringing not only their product, but also the resulting economic stimulus, to the local communities that support their company.
“When we reference organic growth, it really has multiple meanings for us,” said Viridiun co-founder Rhett Marlow. “We are building ground-up organic growth for Viridiun year after year, quarter after quarter and supporting an industry that has found a way to maximize the value of organics recycling throughout the food chain.”
“We operate on a local level by choice,” added partner and co-founder Eric Hickman. “Our business model has long-range global environmental implications, but we see the results in the communities where we operate. Supporting the local economy is a key tenant of our company’s mission.”
