Rooted in sustainability
Sustainability is a core part of the Greenyard 2030 Strategy and has been at the heart of our company since the very beginning.
Greenyard’s Sustainability Roadmap for 2025 defines how the Group will realize its ambition to become a driving force in the transition to healthier lifestyles and more sustainable food chains, including 100% recyclable packaging, lower water footprint, emissions reduction, and minimizing food waste, all while ensuring responsible sourcing.
Aligning with the Group’s Sustainability Roadmap allows us to stay ahead of future requirements, from plastic reduction to food waste mitigation.
As an industry leader, we view our commitment to sustainability as a driving force for a healthier future for both people and the planet.
Clementine Kraft Bag
We’ve launched a new bag for clementines, which uses 75% less plastic in the film.
The “Eco-Box” is a moisture-resistant, very sturdy high graphic box that is created with clay-coated recyclable paperboard, which reduces the use of plastic by 100%.
Both the new film and net are made out of high-density polyethylene, a type of plastic that can be recycled through store drop-off bins.
... And more
Packaging is just one of our many goals for the future in our sustainability roadmap. We are also aligned with retailers’ sustainable goals, so this is a step forward to a healthier future for all.
