One Harvest has planned to make all plastic packaging recyclable

In a bold move towards sustainability, Australia’s leading salad maker, One Harvest, has announced plans to make all plastic packaging recyclable, recyclable, or compostable by 2025. This commitment marks an important step in the company’s commitment to shaping a greener future.

As a proud member of the ANZPAC Plastics Agreement, One Harvest will work with other industry leaders to achieve a shared vision of a circular economy for plastics.

Through collaboration, investment and innovative, regionally tailored solutions, the alliance aims to transform the way plastics used and managed in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

By 2025, One Harvest aims to achieve four key objectives outlined by the ANZPAC Plastic Charter, including the elimination of unnecessary and problematic packaging through new design and innovation to ensure that 100% of plastic packaging is recyclable, recyclable, or compostable, increasing the collection and individuality of plastic packaging in the ANZPAC region.

At least 25% of all geographic recycling, and an average of 25% of recycled content in plastic packaging throughout the region.

One Harvest’s Last year’s achievement

Over the past year, One Harvest has implemented programs at its four locations to eliminate problematic plastics and improve packaging through in-house technology. The company has also provided post-recycled packaging. Which has increased in many dimensions. However, Humpage acknowledged that more innovation needs to adapt the way plastics produced and used for a sustainable future.

According to ANZPAC figures, only 18% of plastic packaging in Australia is recovered for future use, with alarming projections suggesting that without intervention, the amount of plastic on the market could collapse by double by 2040, tripling the amount of plastic entering the ocean each year. There is a shift in the economy, where waste and pollution decline.

One Harvest CEO Justin Pennock emphasized the company’s commitment to sustainability, saying: “Our unwavering commitment to improving lives through food production.” Collaboration and sharing of knowledge is critical to shaping a sustainable future for future generations, and we are fully committed to it.”
