At the 2016 awards event, PepsiCo’s Smith’s Snackfood Company and Sakata Rice Snacks received the APC high performer award in the Large Food and Beverage category. The company’s commitment to packaging sustainability has been recognised with several APC awards in recent years.
“We are proud signatories to the Australian Packaging Covenant, and are always looking for innovative ways to cut packaging waste and to recycle. We use a lifecycle approach to improve sustainability, such as reducing packaging material through design, responsible sourcing, improving efficiencies in manufacturing and distribution, and working collaboratively with others in the supply chain. Recycling promotes the sustainable use of resources, keeps waste out of landfills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. By recycling, each PepsiCo team member individually makes a difference to our environment and helps to deliver PepsiCo Performance With Purpose.” Janine Cannell, PepsiCo ANZ Environment Manager
