Our Planet, Our Priority:
Striving for a sustainable future for all
Today more than ever before, developing food packaging, tableware equipment is no longer just about optimizing functionality and looks. It’s also about designing environmentally conscious products that safeguard our world for future generations.
Every new product we design is assessed from an environmental point of view, taking into consideration not only the material it is made of but, most importantly, its life cycle and recycling options. It’s about making the right choices with a perfect balance between material use, logistics and recycling. This way, we aim to provide products that supersede the impression of being eco-friendly, delivering what they promise.
Responsible manufacturing & resource management
The way we produce our products has a direct impact on the environment. Therefore, we make ongoing improvements to our production processes and our logistics. We also expect all of our suppliers to join us in this journey and make sure that all materials we use are sourced, processed and produced in an ethical and environmentally friendly way.
Local production and smart logistics
As we serve customers around the globe, resourceful manufacturing is only half the way. Aiming to minimize our carbon footprint, we have local manufacturing facilities in Belgium, the USA and Thailand enabling us to produce closer to our core markets, which in turn makes for a significant reduction in transportation and CO2 emission.
Our people play an essential role in our ESG strategy. Without our dedicated employees, we wouldn't have been able to run our business and grow for the past years. The same counts for working together with our suppliers and customers. At the same time, we realize that our operations influence the lives of communities around us and so we want to work together with them to create a positive impact.Read more
