How well do you know your bacon? From using whole muscle meat to setting a Guinness World Record, here are 15 facts you should know about Godshall’s bacon.
We Never Stop Going Green
One of the cornerstones of Godshall’s success has always been our core values. And one of those values is our desire to protect the earth’s natural resources by being environmental stewards.
Through innovation, efficient use of energy and water, and respect for the land, we have succeeded in going green in five significant areas: solar, recycling, water reduction, clean burning natural gas and energy reclamation.
Spread out over three locations, Godshall’s has over 4,000 solar panels to generate clean energy. This results in a CO2 offset of over 2,350 tons annually.
Godshall’s strives to stay landfill free through the committed use of sustainable waste management programs throughout our operations.
We use robotic washers to reduce water usage which saves nearly 5.5 million gallons of water per year – that’s enough to fill over 130,000 bathtubs!
Our ovens use clean burning natural gas. Natural gas can reduce CO2 emissions up to 60% compared to coal when used to generate electricity.
We reclaim waste heat from our refrigeration systems and utilize it to heat water for our factories. This saves over 50 million BTU’s per year and reduces 2.7 metric tons of CO2 per year.
