Results

Below are the results for the four products studied. For each product, an account is given firstly for the life cycle from cultivation of raw materials to factory gate, i.e. until the finished product leaves the factory. This result is divided up in such a way that contributions from ingredients, the production process, transport and packaging are accounted for separately in an illustration. In the case of snack foods, the transport of finished products from the factory gate generally has little impact compared to earlier life-cycle phases, so the pattern of environmental impact in the various impact categories studied will be similar for the product and even between products. The same text therefore reappears in the tables for the total results for each product.
