Vote for Green Plant of the Year for 2016

Our seventh annual Green Plant of the Year voting poll is looking for the 'greenest' food manufacturing plant in the United States.

It’s time for the second of our two annual popularity contests. Voting for Green Plant of the Year is now open.

We have three worthy contenders:

  • ConAgra Foods Lamb Weston processing facility in Boardman, Ore., which makes french fries and other frozen potato products, received LEED Silver certification, in part due to a recent 340,000-sq.-ft. addition to the existing building.
  • In West Springfield, Mass., cows in Agri-Mark’s cooperative provide the cream and the electricity needed to make Cabot Creamery butter.
  • When Clif Bar & Company decided to build its first bakery, its design rallying cry was ‘Think Like a Tree.’

The plant with the most votes wins and will be profiled in our October issue.
