Greenfood Greenhouse crowned Logistics Facility of the Year 2023

Annually, the business magazine Intelligent Logistics presents this prestigious award. Out of an initial 40, only five were shortlisted as finalists. Today, it's been announced that Greenfood's Greenhouse has clinched the top spot.

Greenhouse was developed to strengthen Greenfood's leading role in the healthy food space, and improve customer offerings. Built by Skanska, this facility prioritizes sustainability and aims to reduce Greenfood's carbon footprint.

"Together with Skanska, we've developed a cutting-edge, environmentally efficient food and logistics center. This positions us to further expand in Europe, increase sales, and enhance our product range.", said Ted Stenshed, CEO of Greenfood Fresh Produce.

The vision was clear from the outset: establish an advanced food and logistics center focusing on modern technology and sustainability. Greenhouse excels in energy conservation and environmental practices, with features like efficient cooling, waste heat recovery, and an extensive array of solar panels to cater to a significant portion of its energy needs.

"Our ethos and the products we provide are dependent on a healthy planet. It's imperative that we continue to reduce our carbon emissions and commit to sustainable practices. This new facility is integral to that mission," saidLisa Isakson, the Head of Sustainability at Greenfood.

  1. Addressing a genuine market need while optimizing operations for both operators and customers. The facility's location should be selected with minimal environmental impact in mind.
