New packaging strategy

Scandi Standard is affected by new legislation and clear trends in packaging. For example, the EU states that all plastic packaging must be able to be reused or recycled by 2030.

A new packaging strategy was adopted by the Group during 2018. The focus is on prioritising clean, non-composite materials, and to choose recycled and thinner materials where possible.

We have set a goal for all of our plastic packages to be made from renewable or recycled materials by 2023 at the latest, and to reduce the use of plastic in our own production by 30 percent by 2025.

A new technology was tested during the year in Denmark for wrapping pallets, which reduces the amount of plastic film by 30 percent. This technology will be implemented at all plants in 2019.
