The carbon footprint is one of the main indicators to assess the impact of human activity on the natural environment. The aim of this study was to determine the carbon footprint for the production technology of fruit paste. We selected homogenized strawberry paste because it had the largest share in production. Our study presents the methodology for calculating carbon dioxide emissions in order to assess and reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated by the given food technology. CO2 emissions were calculated for monthly and annual production, taking into account available data on production, material balances obtained, emission data collected, and assumed indices. It has been shown that the process of cold storage is a major factor influencing the level of CO2 emissions. Determining the carbon footprint of specific technology enables deliberate reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, which contributes to environmental protection.
