What or how does your business contribute to a more sustainable NZ?
Ashbec Trading is acutely aware of the amount of packaging used within the takeaway food sector that ends up in landfills.
As a conscientious and responsible business we believed we had the power to influence a major change in this area. We have taken the lead role in coordinating local councils, composting and recycling facilities along with packaging manufacturers and food retailers to raise awareness of the scale of this issue. We researched the relevant industries and could see that there was a disconnect between the parties concerned. Our determination and experience came into play so we were able to effectively communicate with the various parties and share our vision.
As a result, large accounts throughout New Zealand have been switching over to our range of sustainable packaging with many more following.
Furthermore, Ashbec’s commitment to making a positive change is demonstrated by our bulk buying directly from the factories. Purchasing this way requires considerable capital outlay however it also means that the food retailers get an environmentally friendly product at a competitive price, thus removing another barrier that inhibits food retailers from doing the right thing, in doing so breaking the mould of a traditional packaging distributor.
Landfills are potentially environmentally damaging and costly for councils to operate. Our initiative will mean that soiled food packaging waste that enters waste system be easily diverted to and converted into a high value item for waste recovery business downstream and not go to a landfill.
