Bolton’s commitment to sustainability and, in particular, to creating increasingly sustainable packaging was recognized and awarded last Thursday in the context of the “Conai Prevention Call 2019”.
Luciano Pirovano, Sustainable Development Director at Bolton Food, Eleonora Venturini, CSR Manager for the Home & Personal Care Divisions, and Tommaso Nardi, Francesca Falcone and Susanna Maggioni from the R&D departments of Manetti & Roberts and Bolton Manitoba were called on stage of the “The Economy of the Future. The new sustainability“ event to receive the awards for the four winning projects.
Bolton Manitoba and Manetti & Roberts received the “Conai Prevention Call Award” for the reduction of about 20% of the weight of cardboard used for the displays of WC Net Tavolette and Vetril and Smac triggers, as well as the reduction of about 40% of the weight of the cardboard used for the external packaging of Somatoline Cosmetic sachets.
Bolton Food, which received the CONAI award for the fourth consecutive year, was recognized with the “Special Award” for the reduction of aluminium in the Insalatissime Rio Mare packaging, from a thickness of 0.24 mm to 0.22.
“Sustainability goes hand in hand with responsibility” – stated Luciano Pirovano while receiving the prize. “At Bolton Food, as at all the companies of the Bolton Group, we have been working on packaging for a long time because packaging is the product’s first approach to consumers and because the quantity of packaging to be managed is becoming increasingly important. That’s why even a few millimeters reduction is an accomplishment”. We hereby congratulate all the people who worked on the winning projects and allowed Bolton Group to move forward with our sustainability program.
