Commitment towards environment

We are convinced it is not enough that the product is only of high quality and tasty, it must also fulfill its mission in other areas. We want to create products that do not burden the environment, so we place special emphasis on the conformity of manufacture, the circular economy and the economical resource management.

Our commitment to the environment

 

We commit to reduce Argeta’s ecological footprint by 20 percent.

Sustainable and recyclable packaging

We want to increase the amount of recycled materials used in packaging.

 

COMMITMENTS AND GOALS BY 2030:

  • We will make a complete transition to cardboard and paper packaging with FSC certified raw material.

We want to reduce the amount of paper and plastic used.

 

COMMITMENTS AND GOALS BY 2030:

  • Declarations will be printed directly on the packaging, without the use of labels.

Aluminum in Argeta packaging is a valuable resource that can be reused over and over again, but only if the packaging is cleaned and properly sorted. In order to reuse as much of the packaging as possible, we want to educate consumers through communication and projects.

 

COMMITMENTS AND GOALS BY 2030:

  • We will educate consumers about the proper separation of waste and thus strive to return most of the aluminum packaging for reuse.

Reducing the amount of food waste

Encouraging consumers to reduce food waste

 

We want to increase the number of packages that enable optimal use of the product and achieve the vision of zero food waste by raising consumer awareness.

 

COMMITMENTS AND GOALS BY 2030:

  • We will make consumers aware of ways to reduce food waste.
  • We will offer packaging solutions that will help consumers reduce food waste.

LCA analysis (Life-cycle assessment)

LCA analysis (Life-cycle assessment)

To optimize the management of environmental footprints, in 2018 we included the entire value chain in the LCA analysis: input raw materials, packaging manufacture, spread manufacture in Izola and Sarajevo, transport to distribution centers and packaging waste.

The results showed that as much as 60 to 70% of the total environmental footprint comes from the components of our products, 20 to 30% from packaging, 1 to 3% from distribution and 5 to 7% from manufacture. Although we strive to optimize processes and reduce the environmental footprint at all levels of manufacture, the environmental optimization of our supply chain is crucial for us.

Sustainable energy and water consumption and waste management

We want to reduce the share of water consumed at our own manufacture sites.

 

COMMITMENTS AND GOALS BY 2030:

  • We will reduce the amount of water consumed per tonne of product by 8%.

We want to reduce the amount of sludge from our own treatment plant.

 

COMMITMENTS AND GOALS BY 2030:

  • We will reduce the amount of sludge from our own treatment plant by 90%.

We want to increase the share of waste or by-products included in the circular loop, which we do not discard and use for other purposes.

 

COMMITMENTS AND GOALS BY 2030:

  • We will find optimal circular operational solutions for organic waste management from manufacture and new solutions for other wastes.

We want to reduce the amount of energy used and increase the share of energy obtained from renewable sources.

 

COMMITMENTS AND GOALS BY 2030:

  • We will reduce energy consumption per tonne of product by 8%.
  • We will introduce green energy solutions.

Sustainable and safe packaging

Our bins for meat and fish spreads are made of aluminum, which can be completely reused or recycled. Aluminum enables a longer product life, protects it well from external influences and, by reducing weight, also significantly reduces the carbon footprint.

Argeta vegetable spreads are packed in glass packaging, which can also be completely recycled. This way, we consistently implement our policy of ensuring the safe and carefree enjoyment of our products.
