Puratos, leading global provider of bakery, patisserie and chocolate ingredients, announced today its commitment to switching to more sustainable packaging solutions. The company is dedicated to moving the planet forward by creating innovative solutions for the health and well-being of people everywhere.
“At Puratos, we are making major strides towards improving the sustainability of our packaging,” states Sophie Blum, Chief Marketing & Channels Officer at Puratos. “It's a major undertaking, with the size and diversity of our global portfolio. We are focused on reducing our and our customers’ environmental footprints and striving towards a better and more sustainable future.”
The changes will mean that all Puratos’s packaging will become 100% recycle-ready. Selected packaging types will benefit from additional improvements such as paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and an ink reduction of up to 70%, as well as a more sustainable production process with fewer chemicals and less energy used. In addition to the sweeping sustainability improvements, Puratos will enhance the functionality of several packaging types for its customers’ convenience, including easier recycling, simpler opening and closing and better pallet stacking properties.
The elegant, modern, and minimalist design of the new packaging is an expression of the company's purpose. With a sleek and sophisticated look, it represents Puratos's dedication to food innovation for good.
With these developments, Puratos is moving closer to reaching its goal of being carbon-neutral across operations by 2025 and a zero-waste-to-landfill company by 2030 - while simultaneously helping to lower customers’ environmental footprints worldwide.
“We are committed to helping build a more sustainable future and creating solutions that promote the health and well-being of people everywhere. That is why we continuously invest in research and innovation to create solutions and ingredients that will help further reduce our own and our customers’ environmental footprints. We are proud to be part of a global movement to create a more sustainable world and will continue to develop innovative solutions to make a difference.” says Sophie Blum.
