Good for the planet...and business.
We all play a powerful role in protecting our future and at Hulamin Containers, we understand the full worth of our choices, to make decisions that will encourage the sustainability of our resources.
Aluminium as a sustainable packaging material is not only good for the planet, but good for business too; its structural integrity, lightweight and impervious characteristics result in prepared meals being more efficiently produced on the production line, lighter to transport, protected against damage and contamination during storage, extending shelf life and reducing waste.
Food manufacturers and retailers do well in listening to growing consumer demand for products that are sustainable and as more information becomes available on the state our natural resources, the pattern of consumer purchasing behaviour changes. Take South Africa’s oceans for example; they provide us with tremendous benefits from acting as a vast highway for commerce, providing a place for recreation and, most importantly, supplying us with food. Unfortunately, unsustainable practices have left fish stocks dangerously depleted and ecosystems sufficiently altered to jeopardise a number of marine species; South African consumers are now asking more questions about where their fish comes from and at Hulamin Containers, we believe sustainability of packaging materials is as important as the contents of the pack.
Hulamin Containers is committed to sustainable packaging solutions; our aluminium foil containers are manufactured with no less than 50% recycled content and we have, for many years now, implemented the environmental management system ISO 140001.
