Gat Foods is committed to ensuring the highest quality management standards throughout the entire value chain, from purchase to production, storage, and delivery. To achieve this, Gat Foods conducts supplier audits, self-audits, and complies with international standards for food product quality and safety
Gat Foods’ corporate responsibility starts with valuing its people by creating the right environment that fosters continuous improvement, together with a sense of engagement. We are committed to fair employment practices with an emphasis on diversity and equal opportunities for all, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, or any other differentiator. Our social policy focuses on fulfilling our employees’ potential by providing on-the-job training programs, rewarding prominent personnel, and assisting employees in their shift into retirement. We focus on maintaining a safe and healthy workplace to prevent any incidents and injuries. We encourage our employees to maintain a healthy lifestyle by participating in company sports activities and following nutritional guidance plans. For many years, our employees have contributed and continue to be involved in the local community by volunteering and supporting disadvantaged children on a weekly basis.
Gat Foods ensures that all production processes adhere to environmental standards. Issues such as reducing the use of resources, recycling, and waste treatment are an integral part of the daily agenda at our factory.
Gat Foods works to reduce water usage and to enhance wastewater treatment processes. We employ advanced technologies to biologically treat our industrial wastewater in compliance with local regulations. We reuse treated water for cleaning procedures as well as for irrigating nearby fields.
Gat Foods aims to minimize its environmental footprint. We focus on decreasing our energy use and, thus, our GHG emissions by enhancing emphasis on efficiency, cost reduction, renewables, and environmental awareness. We strive to lessen the use of chemicals in our processes. These efforts present operational cost-saving opportunities and an avenue for reducing our environmental impact.
We make sure to recycle our residues and waste most efficiently. Residues of peels and fruit become animal feed and fertilizers for local farms. Packaging materials used for our own Prigat brand in Israel are fully recyclable. Bottles, paper, nylon, electronic waste, batteries, and metals are sent to recycling facilities.
