Environment & Sustainability

The World isn’t just our planet, it’s our home. Here hope speaks the language of love, emotions take the form of relationship, magic coexists with inspirations, and strength stands for beauty.

This beautifully strong home never ceases to amuse us, and that’s why at Merino we commit to business practices that behave ethically and responsibly towards the environment and its sustainability.

  • We also produce more than 500 M. Tons of Vermi-compost using the waste from the Potato Processing Plant.We burn all combustible waste in the Incinerator, and utilize the Heat to Dry Agro Waste used as Fuel.
  • We encourage Plantation and development of “Green Belts” inside our premises as well as in the neighborhood.
