In order to have a significant impact on the environmental sustainability of a product it is necessary to know in detail its entire life cycle. For this reason, INALCA uses LCA techniques (Life Cycle Assessment) and EPD (Environmental Product Declaration). The LCA techniques enable companies to gain more knowledge on the impacts and consumption of products placed on the market, whereas the latter aims to permitting correct and transparent communication to consumers for greater environmental awareness of their purchasing decisions.

Impacts and consumption

The LCA techniques enable companies to gain more knowledge on the impacts and consumption of products placed on the market, whereas the latter aims to permitting correct and transparent communication to consumers for greater environmental awareness of their purchasing decisions.

Clear information

The EPD© system is undoubtedly a technical reference amongst the most qualified, objective and verified by third parties, to provide clear and truthful information on the actual impacts and consumption of food products.
INALCA has been launching for a long time projects of Lyfe Cycle Assessment (LCA) projects for the most representative products. The first one concerns the MONTANA branded frozen hamburgers in a 400 g pack (containing 4 hamburgers) and in a 1000 g pack (containing 10 hamburgers).

Life Cycle Assessment

In Italy, knowledge about the environmental sustainability of meat is being communicated to consumers and stakeholders through information platforms, the most important being “Sustainable Meats” (www.carnisostenibili.it). This subject carries out objective and scientifically based communication on sustainability issues in the meat market, using the opinion of experts and the most recent and qualified scientific productions of the sector.
