Launch of our Paper and Cardboard Packaging Sourcing Charter

Today marks the official launch of our Paper and Cardboard Packaging Sourcing Charter. At Vandemoortele, we see it as our responsibility towards our customers to ensure that our products do not contribute to deforestation in any way. The Charter is an essential step in our continuing journey towards responsible sourcing. In it, we pledge that, by the end of 2018, all paper bags, solid cardboard and corrugated cardboard packaging will be made from recycled or certified materials. In addition, by 2020, all paper and cardboard packaging materials for our consumer brands will be recycled or certified sustainable.

Shaping a tasty future responsibly!
