Frito-Lay Ohio facility applauded for green achievement
    Frito-Lay's Wooster, Ohio, facility has become the city's first member of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Environmental Performance Track Program by demonstrating excellence in environmental management and committing to above-standard goals for continuous improvements in environmental performance.

    Today, the EPA has recognized Frito-Lay Wooster for this achievement at a flag raising ceremony.

    The EPA National Environmental Performance Track Program recognizes facilities that have a strong record of environmental compliance, set three-year goals for continuous improvements in environmental performance beyond regulatory requirements, have internal systems in place to manage environmental impact, engage in community outreach and consistently report results.

    "For years, Frito-Lay Wooster has had a resource conservation program in place that has helped the facility achieve significant reductions in water, energy and waste,"says Leslie Starr Keating, senior vice president, operations, Frito-Lay North America.

    The Frito-Lay Wooster plant has set several goals for environmental improvement over the next few years, including reducing energy usage, water usage, and waste through updated technology and equipment, and improved recycling programs.
