LC Packaging wins Nestlé Sustainability Award for Suppliers 2021

LC Packaging’s reusable FIBC (Big Bag) solution was the winner of the Sustainability Award for Suppliers II Edition by Nestlé Portugal on Monday 8 November 2021. The award is an incentive that aims to share Nestlé’s sustainability goals and the value of sharing with business partners and society. With LC Packaging’s closed-loop solution, Nestlé’s factory in Avanca, Portugal, can reuse its Big Bags up to five times. By doing so, the amount of plastic waste in its operations has significantly decreased.

Paolo Fagnoni, Managing Director of Nestlé Portugal: “Our suppliers are an integral part of our value chain and, therefore, we are proud to see the alignment that various companies from different sectors of activity have in favour of protecting the environment and sharing value throughout their chains production”.

The reuse solution, invisible to the eyes of Nestlé’s customers, shows the complete way in which Nestlé is approaching the transformation of its packaging material: considering all stages of the value chain.

Reusing FIBCs up to 5 times

This reuse project arose in response to the challenge launched by the Avanca factory to develop a reusable version of their FIBCs with liner. The solution found by LC Packaging specialists allowed the change of the Big Bag design while maintaining production quality. The change consisted of eliminating the inner lining layer in combination with a new bag emptying system. The end result was a Big Bag that includes a double bottom layer with a special double deflation spout system. With this solutions, the bags became fully reusable. By allowing Big Bags to be reused five times, Nestlé also simultaneously contributes to the reduction of water consumption (8.8 liters per bag), energy (5.7 kwh per bag) and CO2 emissions (7.4 kg per kg of bag).

A recognition of sustainable development

“LC Packaging is really proud to receive the Nestlé 2021 Sustainability Award. We see this award as confirmation that we are working together on the right topics and that the support we have given so far and plan to continue to give Nestlé in the future is being appreciated. Sustainable solutions for FIBC packaging are the main driver of our initiatives. As FIBCs are almost ‘invisible’ to the consumer and not in their focus, we see a great chance for Nestlé to adapt these big bags for other markets and applications too”, says Miguel Weber Sales Executive LC Packaging Portugal.
