The “Water Footprint” of a product is equal to the quantity of sweet water required to produce that product. The result derives from the sum of:
GREEN WATER: rain water, natural cycle, low impact on the natural environment.
BLUE WATER: surface water – rivers and lakes – or from underground – groundwater – used in the process cycle. It os the water used for the artificial irrigation in agriculture. The use of “blue water” has a remarkable impact on the environment. Therefore the main concern for the future of food processing businesses is to reduce the consumption of “blue water”. In order to reach this goal the market must be oriented towards those products of low “water intensity” coming from more suitable climatic areas. It’s the high saving of “blue water” that allows Gran Moravia to present a record “water footprint”.
GREY WATER: waternecessary to dilute the polluting factors generated by productive process.
The “Water Footprint” of Gran Moravia is of 2.067 lt./kg. per product, according to DNV Business Assurance, less than the half of the water footprint of cheese valued by “waterfootprint.org”.
This record results from the suitable weather conditions of the Moravia region and from the water saving adopted by the “eco sustainable chain”. In the cheese factory (grey water) all the techniques of recycling and recovery are adopted. In the farms (blue water) the fodder is grown without artificial irrigation. In fact in the Moravia region, also during the summer time, the natural humidity is sufficient for a regular growth of the crop. The result is “blue water” of only 87lt per kg of Gran Moravia
Through our diet we can influence the water consumption and “the virtual transfer of water”. The choice of Gran Moravia in the daily diet, without discarding other animal protein nutrients and by taking them in turns, allows you to greatly diminish your water footprint while enjoying a rich and complete diet.
