Groot-Bijgaarden, Belgium – Puratos, a provider of bakery, patisserie and chocolate ingredients, has committed to switching to more sustainable packaging that is easier to recycle.

According to a news release, the changes mean that all of the company’s packaging will become 100 per cent recycle-ready. Selected types will benefit from additional improvements such as paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and an ink reduction of up to 70 per cent, as well as a more sustainable production process with fewer chemicals and less energy used.

The company will enhance the functionality of several packaging types for its customers’ convenience, including easier recycling, simpler opening and closing, and better pallet-stacking properties.

Puratos describes its design as elegant, modern, minimalist and an expression of the company’s purpose.

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.

“At Puratos, we are making major strides towards improving the sustainability of our packaging,” states Sophie Blum, chief marketing and channels officer at Puratos. “It’s a major undertaking, with the size and diversity of our global portfolio. We are striving towards a better and more sustainable future.”
