This year we are honoured to have been listed as a finalist in the Keep New Zealand Beautiful 2018 Awards – The Most Sustainable Business Project Award. It’s great to see so many great Kiwis and businesses and groups doing great things to help Keep New Zealand Beautiful. Congratulations to all the finalists and winners!
In October 2017, we launched our first product in home compostable packaging, and this year we’ve followed this up by extending the range of products we offer in this format. As a result, this has meant over 84,000 less single use plastic packs are out there in the environment, and with the extension across our quinoa blends and classic mueslis, we estimate there will be 340,000 less single use packs within the next 12 months.
We’re incredibly proud of this innovation and it’s exciting step to reducing the amount of plastic being sent to landfill. This is the first step of many towards moving much of our brand as possible to environmentally friendly packaging without compromising the integrity of our products.
