IMC got a chance to show off its waste management equipment to the government minister in charge of Wales’ food waste policies this week.
Alun Davies, minister for natural resources and food, stopped in at the company’s Wrexham manufacturing facility, where he was given a tour of the facilities by managing director, Steve Witt, and co-directors, Jan Atherton and Sue De Clancy.
Wales has a zero waste goal and Davies’ visit allowed him to see how IMC’s food waste recycling solutions are able to help meet that target.
“Sustainable management of food waste is an important environmental issue and a growing business opportunity for firms in Wales. I was interested to see IMC’s innovative range of equipment for the catering industry at first hand,” said Davies.
IMC says it has risen to the challenges brought on by the anticipated change in legislation by introducing technology to provide a complete solution to the recycling of food waste. It has pioneered the use of its macerating and dewatering equipment to recycle catering food waste into compost.
Middleby-owned IMC currently employs 84 staff. It exports 45% of the products that it manufactures at its Wrexham Industrial Estate site.
