Chobani Pty Ltd is the winner of the 2020 Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) Industry Sector: Food & Beverage Award, based on Chobani’s performance in its APCO Annual Report.
Having developed an internal Sustainable Packaging Roadmap that consciously considers the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines and the 2025 National Packaging Targets, Chobani has demonstrated its outstanding commitment to continually reviewing and improving packaging sustainability and waste management practices.
Partnering with programs such as REDcycle, Dairy Australia and Clean-Up Australia, Chobani has also demonstrated excellent industry leadership, while its consumer engagement, including application of the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) across all packaging by 2020, remains beyond best practice.
Continuing to review all new packaging within the Packaging Recyclability Evaluation Portal (PREP), more than 75 per cent of its total packaging is now recyclable through Australian kerbside systems.
Operationally, the team is also committed to reducing business-to-business packaging and is working with suppliers to establish reuse systems for bulk packaging where possible.
