What we did?
PRESTIGE has developed its latest innovation, this time in packaging, with care and attention to the environment.
Traditionally, wafer boxes have a colored paper cover that is used for advertising purposes. Determined to contribute to the fight against global warming and to the protection of planet Earth, PRESTIGE’s team has decided to go without this marketing and communication tool. In the production of the favorite brands HYPER, SPOKO, TROY, NAYA and PRESTIGE wafers, the company already uses 34% less paper for its boxes.
The company has invested in the purchase of new packaging machines and in the development of a new, reinforced wafer box design that will allow PRESTIGE to ensure the proper storage and transportation of products. By changing the design of the boxes, PRESTIGE will reduce the amount of paper used for the packaging by about 200,000 kilograms in 1 year.
As a result of this packaging innovation, every year PRESTIGE will save a forest with the size of a football field from being cut down!
What are the benefits?
✓ Less garbage
✓ Less paper used for the packaging
✓ More saved forests
