As a food company, we consider factors such as food safety, food waste and storage when choosing packaging. And even though it is a vilified material, plastic packaging is still the best solution to avoid food waste for our customers and consumers. The plastic packaging keeps bread and buns fresh for a long time, and at the same time, the plastic packaging weighs very little, reducing the environmental impact of transport.
Today, 89% of our plastic packaging is made from recyclable plastics and we are working hard to get recyclable packaging for all our products.
We can’t avoid plastic packaging, but we are working continuously and purposefully to use only recyclable plastics while reducing the amount of plastic we use.
Sourdough prevents food waste
Sourdough is an important ingredient in our rye bread, and we “feed” our sourdough every day with rye bread left over from production. All other discards from our bakeries go to local farmers who can use the bread, rolls and pastries to feed their animals. In this way, we keep the food waste from our own production to an absolute minimum.
