Bio+: milk packaging with the lowest environmental impact
A sustainable product deserves a sustainable packaging. This idea dovetails perfectly with the business philosophy of organic food brand Bio+. To be able to justify its choice of milk packaging, in 2014 Bio+ requested an LCA study that would answer the question: ‘Which milk packaging has the lowest environmental impact?’
LCA study of milk packaging
In our own laboratory we identified and analysed the raw materials used in different types of milk packaging. We then compared the different types of packaging with each other and advised Bio+ regarding the milk packaging with the lowest environmental impact.
A responsible choice of packaging
As an organic specialist Bio+ wanted to be sure it was using the most responsible packaging. Our LCA study showed very clearly which milk packaging was the least environmentally impactful. Based on this scientific study Bio+ could justify its choice of milk packaging to its suppliers, clients and consumers.
