Our favorite quote:


"France has been a pioneer in the field of aseptic milk bottle filling in Europe. The French may even be the world’s greatest plastic bottled UHT milk consumers! Serac’s objective in this field is to meet the manufacturers’ constantly evolving demand and to adapt its range of aseptic machines in order to address new trends.

Milk shelf life in France is traditionally high, in response to the retailers’ requirements and the inconsistent quality of the collected milk, which forced manufacturers to use extensive heat treatment. The quality has improved significantly for a number of years. Now 95% of milk in France is UHT. Yet there is a variety of milk processing methods throughout Europe.

Belgium, Spain and Portugal follow the same pattern as France. By contrast, Northern Europe favors pasteurized milk. As for Germany and Italy, they offer both fresh milk and UHT milk. The European drinking milk market is therefore not homogeneous.
Bottled UHT milk has just started to develop in Russia, where the first aseptic line has just been set up.

The main advantage of milk aseptic filling is that it can be used to extend the milk shelf life with a lesser deterioration of organoleptic properties of the product compared with sterilized milk for example.

The reason is that milk, which is highly nutritious , is one of the most sensitive products from a microbiologic and organoleptic point of view."

Our favorite quote:


"Another concern of cosmetic brands: meeting sustainable development issues with more environmentally friendly materials that preserve fossil resources and reduce energy consumption, like Lancôme polyethylene tubing, Kiehl’s PET bottles and Biotherm recycled glass jars.

On the whole our materials will be the same tomorrow as those we use today, with one difference: they will no longer come from fossil energy sources but from bio-renewable, and/or recycled resources. We must also make sure that our folding cartons and paperboards (FSC or PEFC certified) are sourced in a responsible manner.

In addition we have introduced a policy to reduce primary and secondary packaging, for packaging used between our suppliers and our plants as well as for our products themselves. And we have committed ourselves to reducing the waste generated by our finished products by 50% between 2005 and 2015, alongside our water consumption and CO² emissions.

The L’Oreal plant in Jababeka (Indonesia) is, for example, LEED certified, an American standard that defines strict rules for sustainable building design (in particular, rational use of water and energy). Other Group production sites (for example, Settimo Torinese in Italy, Libramont in Belgium) have set the objective of rapidly reaching zero carbon footprint.

The cosmetics industry should also anticipate regulatory and media expectations. For example, we must focus on the ‘fair’ protection of our formulas. The quality of raw materials, the formulation, the manufacturing and packing processes and the packaging fall within this scope."

Our favorite quote: 


"French supermarket chain Carrefour is one of Nature & More's first clients to have opted for organic fruit and vegetables packed with the new materials. Julie Mahmoun, product manager at Carrefour : "As part of our anti-waste program, packaging is a very important issue for Carrefour. We encourage our suppliers to minimize the environmental footprint of packaging by focusing on recycling and working with renewable and waste materials. The new Eosta / Nature & More sugar cane tray fits our philosophy and that is why we have selected it for our organic fruit and vegetables."


Read the opinion column of Bruno Garnier, Quality Packaging & Sustainable Development Expert at Carrefour, to learn more about Carrefour's packaging strategy:

 

"There is no such thing as good or bad materials but there are choices to be made as to packaging components in connection with consumers’ health/safety, marketing strategy, and essential packaging functions, while remaining price competitive. 

Following market trends and implementing source reduction, assisting consumers when consuming, committing to reduce the environmental impact, all these amount to offering smarter packaging!"

Read a similar approach from Bruno Guillemat, Head of Packaging Department at Pernod Ricard Research Center:


"For Pernod Ricard, packaging innovation is directly linked to an environmentally-friendly approach. The trend towards packaging ‘premiumization’ in the wine and spirits sector goes hand in hand with the sustainable development approach. However, packaging must also become more functional and more interactive. The development of new technologies is also involved in fighting counterfeiting and enhancing consumer experience; two topics which are particularly dear to Pernod Ricard."

"Rethinking packaging


The objective of Danone Produits Frais France is to reduce or remove packaging, when possible, in order to improve its carbon footprint while retaining satisfactory protection, display and consumer information levels. April 2010 was a significant step with the removal of the secondary packaging on the Activia and Taillefine brands – 1,600 tons of cardboard saved, i.e. the equivalent of 2,500 tons of CO².


Then, in April 2011, four brands reduced secondary packaging on their large formats – i.e. 1,000 tons of cardboard saved or 1,800 tons of CO² equivalent.


In the wake of Activia and Taillefine, Velouté is starting its metamorphosis. Until now, we could not remove secondary packaging because the former pot had no individual decoration. Thanks to Kiss, it is now possible.


We must bear in mind that packaging plays a major role in the life and identity of the products. They contribute to their protection, make them easy to find on the shelves and display consumer information. The difficulty lies mainly in graphic design. Basically the same brand visibility and amount of information must be conveyed over a smaller printing surface. A true challenge for graphic design agencies! What is at stake is worth the effort: from an environmental point of view, cardboard represents a total of approximately 20% of the packaging carbon footprint!"

Our favorite quote:


In the pharmaceutical area, packaging is very important, and it is becoming an integral part of new drug development. Traceability, new materials, formats and ergonomics are the focuses for improving packaging. Traceability is critical for the safety and service provided to patients.

Packaging accounts for approximately 38% of our production purchases. We are therefore permanently working on optimizing it as we regard it as a competitive advantage that brings value-added to the product’s marketing mix. We are therefore working closely with our franchises (urology-oncology, neurology and endocrinology) on new packaging concepts, both primary (for example, pre-filled syringes) and secondary.

For specialty care products, the ‘device’ is more and more often considered an integral part of the drug. It becomes essential in terms of quality of life for the patient: the objective is to offer ready-to-use formats, as user-friendly as possible with a maximum level of safety. The preliminary meetings between the marketing department, designers and manufacturing is therefore more and more meaningful in order to integrate very early requirements from the market and from patients in terms of efficiency and ease of use, but also of manufacturing costs."

"Another is the Bacardi rum bottle used for the entire line of party drinks – made of 100% recyclable PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic. PET is the same plastic material used for bottled water. It also requires less energy to produce than glass, lowers transportation costs and fuel emissions – and importantly, is safer than traditional glass for on-the-go venues.

Since 2006, Bacardi has reduced the weight of its packaging by more than 7%. The weight reduction is equivalent to taking 1,100 full truckloads off the road – a significant reduction in the Bacardi carbon footprint."
