Reducing our Footprint

Reducing our Footprint

At MasterFoods, we’re committed to building a better world tomorrow for all our children. So we’re always looking for ways to reduce our footprint.

Our manufacturing site in Australia, we committed to zero waste to landfill, in 2006. In 2014, we achieved this target thanks to a dedicated on-site team who sort waste; recycling plastic, glass, food and pallets. What we can’t recycle is sent off to be converted into gas or electricity.

In our quest for sustainability we use the lightest materials possible. Small changes can have a surprisingly big effect. When we changed the label on MasterFoods Squeezy Tomato Sauce bottles for example, we saved almost 10 tons of landfill per year. We’ve also reduced the amount of glass in our jars, which saves 2000 tons of glass every year.
