Packaging

5 lessons learned from the Green Deal Circular Procurement

  1. If plastic packaging is used in a closed loop, it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
  2. The sustainability of a packaging material can only be correctly estimated when the entire chain is identified. It’s essential to enter into dialogue with suppliers about packaging material and methods.
  3. The impact of logistics should be considered.
  4. Food laws and regulations significantly determine and restrict the packaging options.
  5. The consumer needs to have a clear picture of the issues. For example, paper is not always more sustainable than plastic.
