We are proud to announce that Advanced Nutrients is a finalist for two AWB Awards: The Washington Excellence Awards for Leading Environmental Practices and The Manufacturing Excellence Awards for Operational Excellence.
These prestigious awards represent the businesses that are spearheading innovation, environmental change, and economic stimulation in the state of Washington.
We are happy to find ourselves among the company of other renowned finalists in the state, such as Swire Coca Cola, Altek, and more.
Earlier this year, Advanced Nutrients was voted the Best Cannabis Nutrient Brand 2022 from the team of cultivators over at Grow Diaries, and our best-selling Big Bud® additive was named the Best Nutrient 2022 by Spannabis.
It’s an honor to be once again recognized for our commitment to both the local and global community.
Take an inside look at…
Our Operational Excellence Strategy
We believe every operational excellence strategy should hinge upon increasing efficiency, protecting consumer safety, reducing environmental impact, and improving the end product sold to consumers.
That’s why we not only use the highest-quality inputs from our strategic partner Haifa — the global leader in pure inputs for specialty plant fertilizers — but we also put the most stringent quality control measures in place throughout our manufacturing process. This ensures that cultivators enjoy standardized fertilizers and additives with the same quality and consistency from batch to batch.
Last year, we also started making significant investments into manufacturing process upgrades in Woodland Washington in order to meet demand and streamline product automation. Between innovative computer programming and new hardware installation, we’ve been able to optimize efficiency and increase production.
And we recently launched a groundbreaking water-soluble powder to the market, the Sensi Professional Series. Based on the continued plant-specific testing of our Research & Development team, the Sensi Professional Series is a cost-effective solution to dramatically improve crop yield and potency, resulting in expanded profit margins for cultivators.
Now, sustainability is also an intrinsic part of operational excellence.
But have you ever wondered…
What Do Sustainable Environmental Practices Really Look Like?
Many businesses recognize the real and immediate threat to the environment that we’re currently experiencing. At Advanced Nutrients, we decided to put sustainability at the forefront of our goals for a better future — not just for our cultivation community, but for the world at large.
So we asked ourselves, “How can we help the environment while still producing top-quality fertilizers and additives?”
And just like with our operational excellence strategy, our brainstorming led to major changes that we’re honored to have recognized for the AWB Awards.
In 2021, we switched from bleach as the preferred cleaning chemical to a food-grade sanitizer. Now, instead of being left with unusable, bleach-contaminated waste, we have an environmentally safe bi-product containing trace amounts of food-grade sanitizer that can be repurposed.
We also began installing a new Clean-in-Place system, which automates the process of cleaning all mixers, buffer tanks, and production equipment and results in reduced water and natural gas usage. With this new system in place, we meet or exceed expectations in our annual emissions testing with SWCAA, joining other like-minded companies who are on a mission to reduce their carbon footprints. Furthermore, the Clean in Place System is designed to capture and repurpose all manufacturing into secondary markets to ensure zero emissions are disposed of down the city sewer system.
And as a part of our ongoing commitment to sustainable environmental practices, we doubled down on our efforts to ensure all Advanced Nutrients products are recycled or reused. We currently have recycling programs set up for traditional recycling (thin plastic, paper, aluminum), HDPE Plastic, metal, and cardboard.
