Patisserie and chocolate ingredients supplier Puratos, has announced it is switching to more sustainable packaging solutions as part of its sustainability mission.

The company said it is dedicated to moving the planet forward by ‘creating innovative solutions for the health and wellbeing of people everywhere’.

The changes mean that all of Puratos’s packaging will become 100% recycle-ready. Selected 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.

“At Puratos, we are making major strides towards improving the sustainability of our packaging,” said Sophie Blum, Chief Marketing & 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.”

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.

Puratos  said it is now 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.
