Each week we individually grade, pack and deliver over 60 million eggs for our customers. Noble Foods believe that innovation in eggs is essential and has driven significant branded growth. This is also supported by a desire to “go beyond the egg” which has see Noble acquire GU puds and form Noble Green energy.
Noble Foods has been growing rapidly and the IT department needed to ensure their printing was scalable and secure while reducing costs. Working with easycopiers they were able to reduce the number of printers, save money, lower environmental impact and future-proof their printing investment.
Additionally, the project has drastically improved their environmental footprint. Defaulting their basic printing to double-sided prints has saved around 2.5 million sheets of paper per year. Producing an A4 sheet of paper takes 122ml of water (as wastewater), emits 6.8g of CO2 and leaves behind 0.5g of paper waste when recycled/thrown away. Across a typical 5 year contract, this means the environment won’t have to deal with; 1,536,590 litres of wastewater, 85,646kg of CO2 emissions and 6,297kg of waste paper – a fantastic achievement by the easycopiers team, which was so impressive, the team won and award for the outstanding project.
Winner of the 2016 Environmental Project of the Year from Cloud Hosting Magazine.
It's safe to say, we're very proud of this project!
“It’s been a great journey, going from individual, localised printers to a centrally controlled print environment and we’re realising the benefits of it from both a cost and administration point of view.”
