Schwartz moves entire range of recipe mix sachets to fully recyclable packaging
Another critical step in McCormick’s Purpose-led-Performance journey towards its 2025 sustainability goals
Schwartz is moving its entire range of recipe mix sachets to recyclable packaging. Our new recyclable sachets were first introduced on UK shelves in July 2021, with the roll-out continuing since then.
All recipe mix sachet packaging can be fully recycled at home and at curbside paper bins.
The switch to 100% recyclable recipe mix sachets will mean that compared to its original packaging…
- · Schwartz is using 61% less plastic, saving 29 tonnes of packaging weight annually;
- · 78 tonnes of plastic will no longer go to landfill every year;
- · There will be a 30% reduction in the carbon foot print of the brand’s recipe mixes– equating to 273 tonnes of CO2.
McCormick launched its 2017 Purpose-led Performance Report to introduce a series of commitments and clear performance targets for 2025, informed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Key metrics of the targets are a 25% reduction in the carbon footprint of packaging and 100% plastic packaging that can be recycled, reused or repurposed, by 2025.
In 2018, Schwartz launched its recycling jar and reduced the carbon footprint of its jars by 7%. Schwartz (UK) have redesigned its spice and herbs jars to feature new, modern packaging designed to help reduce our environmental impact. Optimising a wider plastic cap and lighter packaging format, cutting the amount of glass in the bottle, reducing the carbon footprint of the packaging by 7%.
