Unilever Food Solutions' commitment to sustainable packaging
When it comes to plastic use, we at Unilever Food Solutions believe less is more. The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan continues to be our guiding light as we work towards the big commitment we have made to reduce plastic.
By 2020: we will reduce the waste associated with the disposal of our products by 50%.
By 2025: 100% of our plastic packaging will be reusable, recyclable or compostable. And 25% of our plastic packaging will be made from post-consumer recycled (or PCR) plastics.
All Unilever Food Solutions products will from now on carry the “please recycle” logo, inviting our customers and consumers to come on this journey with us. We are also continuing to work closely with our suppliers and partners to help create recycling solutions where these do not already exist.
Around the world, Chefs are embracing a new global movement thatseeks to make the culinary industry a better place to work. Called #FairKitchens, the movement aims to create environments where staff happiness is as important as diner satisfaction.
The #FairKitchens Code is the starting point of the movement. Its values are the ingredients of a happy kitchen: passion and communication, teamwork. The goal is respect. The goal is to work as T.E.A.M.S. Click here for more information.
