There is an ongoing environmental effort at SM Jaleel. We sell all post industrial material (returned bottles, cans and plastic), cardboard, pallets and metal drums to recycling companies.
We also have shredding machines both in Barbados, which shred returned plastic (PET) bottles (post consumption). The shredded plastic is packed in sacks and exported to international recycling companies. The PET flakes are used by these companies to make various things like carpeting, wall insulation, and polyester t-shirts.
We buy large quantities of oranges and grapefruit from local farmers for use in our freshly squeezed juice products (for Trinidad Juices – Not from concentrate). The peel from these fruit is processed to make animal feed.
