HP Hood: A CleanWorld Sustainability Partner

Posted at June 27, 2014

One of the most satisfying aspects of our work in delivering organic waste recycling and climate resiliency solutions is the extraordinary people and companies we partner with. HP Hood brings CleanWorld their processing waste byproduct as part of their efficiency programs, and is a leading example of how CleanWorld’s innovative, high-solid anaerobic digestion technology is literally helping to re-shape how commercial organic waste producers are thinking about efficient, affordable disposal. We’re a big believer in not wasting your waste: HP Hood is, too.


Tim Linder HP Hood’s Sustainability Director, Doug Brauner – The Car Czar – and his production team, and Tracy Saville, VP of Marketing/CleanWorld & Ethan Hanohano, Feedstock Procurement Manager on tour shooting a Car Czar episode February, 2014.

HP Hood, as a processor of the world’s leading dairy products, is committed to doing all they can to achieve the highest outcomes in sustainable business practices. Managing their dairy waste stream to keep costs down, they use┬áCleanWorld’s BioDigesters to be more environmentally responsive and mitigate their waste costs at the same time.

We can’t thank Tim Linder or his team at HP Hood enough for being among the first to jump in and become a leading diverter of organic waste in the Capital Region, making our communities far more climate resilient, and proving we can create a cleaner world if we work together. And to Battle Hill Media and Doug Brauner, the Car Czar and his team? Thanks for helping us tell our story!

HP Hood: A leading sustainability champion!

The Sacramento, CA, HP Hood facility was originally built in the 1970s by Safeway Stores Inc. It was later sold to Crystal Cream & Butter Company in 1993. HP Hood LLC purchased the plant in May 2007 from Crystal Cream & Butter Company. Shortly thereafter, construction began to transform the location from a conventional dairy, high temperature short time (HTST) to an Extended Shelf Life (ESL) plant. In 2011, an aseptic processing and filling line was added to Sacramento, mirroring the aseptic filling capabilities of the HP Hood Winchester, Virginia, facility.
