It's what's on the inside that counts
Established in 1996 as a Food Supplier, the company has since expanded into food manufacturing. The company's Noodle Manufacturing factory was set up in 2006, making it one of the pioneers of being a fully machine-operated manufacturer in Singapore. Since then we have set up a food science facility and have continuously been on the forefront of various innovations.
We believe in doing our best for the planet and our community.
Here at LG, we believe in doing our best not just for the company, but for the planet. Sustainability is a main focus of our business where we strive to give back to our community, constantly reviewing our practices to reduce our carbon footprint and minimize wastage.
Minimising Single Use Packaging
Single use packaging is one of the most problematic types of waste. Disposed in large quantities due to its single use nature, it’s ubiquitous in trash and difficult to recycle. Hence, do our best to avoid single use packaging wherever possible, choosing to have our flour pumped into our silo from flour truck tankers instead of using disposable flour bags.
At our facility, we also opt for reusable baskets instead of carton boxes to transport our goods when possible, effectively cutting down on the usage of one time use carton boxes, minimizing wastage.
We are also invested in our research and development concentrated on the reduction of wastage where our tireless efforts have paid off in the form of a significantly extended shelf life of fresh products without the use of preservatives, minimizing wastage due to food expiring. Through our innovative efforts, we now have a range of noodles that can be kept under ambient conditions which also reduces refrigeration needs, cutting down on energy required to store and transport chilled items.
To further minimize packaging usage, our products come in a varying packaging sizes to suit different application needs, from food service bulk packs instead of multiple small packets to avoid unnecessary packaging usage. We also make a conscious effort to use packaging with lesser material volume while still ensuring food safety.
Reducing Food Waste
As the old saying goes, one man’s waste another man’s treasure. By-products of our manufacturing processes are repurposed as animal and fish feed for local farms to ensure we cut our wastage to the bare minimum. We are also reduce our food wastage through the study to repurpose soybean pulp — a by-product from our beancurd production, into Okara to be used in cooking as a nutritious ingredient with many intangible health benefits.
In efforts to give back to society while reducing our carbon footprint, unexpired surplus food products are donated to our charity partner, Willing Hearts, instead of being disposed of, where the products will feed families instead of contributing to the colossal scale of food wastage here in Singapore.
