In the food industry, water is used for heating, cooling and cleaning. Colac has chosen to invest in sustainable water use. A 1.4 million liter water basin was built under the production facility. This large water basin collects rainwater from the roof.
After a number of successful participations in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, Colac was looking for a more permanent solution to respond to the demand from the Chinese market. A number of options were considered, but due to cultural differences and the language barrier, it was decided to hire someone in China. Fiona started at Colac in January 2019.
Belgian food companies are exporting more and more products abroad. Colac is displayed in the Belgian media as an example company in the food sector that grows a lot and exports a lot.
In the summer of 2017 the new buildings in Beerse are gradually being finalized. The offices were ready in October 2017 and we were all able to move and use the new location. All employees contributed.
The Colac company has been producing ice cream mixes, dessert sauces and fruit preparations since 1981 for both industrial food companies, catering establishments and bakers. After 35 years, Colac is leaving the industrial site in Malle to plant a brand new location ten kilometers away, in the Biezenstraat on Beerse-Zuid.
To be able to supply top-quality products, our ingredients, production process, checks, and work also has to be at the highest level at all times. We’ve been working on this for many years, and are doing all we can to ensure we can stay up-to-date in the future while also guaranteeing consistent quality. That’s why we also work with the right people, in the right place.
