Quality, food safety and environment: commitments we don’t neglect. Contital is certificated EMAS. We have a real commitment to environment issues such as waste and weight reduction, recycling and minimising carbon emissions.
There are a number of initiatives already underway that are having a real positive impact.
We have re-designed our trays so that they can be produced using less aluminium but retain all of the required strength. In some cases as much as 25% less than other industry equivalents.
Our tooling is unique in the industry and is made using the latest technology so that our process waste levels are kept to an absolute minimum.
We segregate all waste streams for re-use or recycling wherever possible.
Aluminium process waste is collected and returned to our suppliers. As much as 30% of this waste is then re used in the raw material that we purchase.
Our aluminium containers are all embossed with a recycling logo to increase consumer awareness of the fact that all of our trays can be recycled, subject to local authority accessibility.
We challenge our suppliers to reduce their waste and where possible to switch from throw away packaging to returnables.
We see this as being the start of a long journey. We hope that you do too.
