Sustainable Packaging

Packaging is a burning topic and expectations on manufacturers are high.

As a food company we are taking action and have built our roadmap for sustainable packaging.

Our vision

No Waste, All Taste. We want packaging to guarantee safe, fresh and convenient products to our customers while minimizing our waste footprint.

 

 

A FEW KEY FACTS

 

Cardboard is our core packaging and represents 85% of the packaging we use. We use 12% plastic packaging and 3% paper packaging.

 

99,8% of our cardboard packaging is recyclable

Our Objectives

  • Reduce the weight of each packaging component
  • Reduce the number of components in our packaging system
  • Adapt our products and packaging sizes to reduce the impact of transport

  • Switch from plastic to cardboard, or paper-based material
  • Strict policy of material with existing way of recycling
