ConAgra Foods Lamb Weston's Delhi, Louisiana., processing facility received its official Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED(R)) Platinum certification today, awarded by the U. S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
The Delhi facility is the first frozen food manufacturing plant worldwide to earn LEED Platinum certification, the highest distinction available to green buildings. The design, construction and operations at the Delhi processing facility were all developed with environmental impact and sustainability in mind. The plant primarily processes sweet potatoes from Louisiana and the surrounding states--prime sweet potato-growing regions--and was built from the ground up using the newest and best processing and packaging technologies. Operations began in September 2010.
