Fahr wins Heineken award
WATERLOO — Fahr Beverage was among the 2018 winners of the Heineken USA’s 1864 Awards that honored distributors in October who share the beer company’s commitment to “Build a Better World” through responsibility and sustainability.
In the smaller-volume category, Fahr Beverage supports designated drivers, offers a “no questions asked” policy for employee safe rides and helps accounts navigate the complex world of state IDs to reduce underage drinking. They installed solar panels that produce up to 30 percent of its energy needs, replaced lighting in offices and warehouse to LEDs, and focus on reducing vehicle idling to save fuel and CO2. Fahr has converted half of their vehicles to compressed natural gas and has a recycling program.
