With our help Yashili New Zealand has in 2019 been making small changes in packaging approaches that have delivered big results. A new more-sustainable pallet film means the company will have saved the equivalent of over a million plastic shopping bags in just six months.
If there’s one focus that’s grown increasingly obvious in recent times it’s that the modern New Zealand business must grow returns without compromising sustainability gains.
For Yashili New Zealand this has meant looking at every process and product through the lifecycle of the company’s China-bound infant formula.
At their Pokeno plant the team are proud of their ‘best-in-class’ facilities. Temperature and humidity is controlled 24/7 and a wide range of automated processes keep everything absolutely precise. Every can of formula must pass regulatory tests both in China and here in New Zealand. Nothing is left to chance.
Every outgoing pallet must be of the highest quality too, and protecting this precious cargo requires diligent focus across every facet of storage, packaging and distribution. It also means the busy company is constantly looking at how to improve their operation.
