Greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction project is one of the key elements for industry to develop toward sustainability. This paper aims to determine eco efficiency of a greenhouse gas reduction project in food processing industry using a case study of a ready to eat food factory in Thailand. The study starts with an analysis of the Carbon Footprint for Organization (CFO) data of the factory in 2015 and 2016. A GHG reduction project is then formulated and implemented. The factory’s CFO in 2017 is then calculate and eco efficiency of each year is then determined. From the study it is shown that eco efficiency of the factory in 2015, 2016, and 2017 is equal to 0.639, 0.575, and 0.693 unit/ton.co2e respectively. Finally, the factor of this study is calculated to be 1.085
