In 2021, IFCO achieved new records in environmental savings. Thanks to IFCO’s reusable packaging containers (RPCs), a total of more than 616.699 tonnes of CO2-e emissions were saved along the fresh food supply chain. This is equivalent to saving 333.190 conventional cars on the road.
OTC Organics is proud of this positive contribution to the environment. Because of our decision to transport organic table grapes in IFCO RPCs, from our grower, Orex Export (Pty), in South Africa to our customers in Europe, we actively participate in the circular economy.
Thanks to the unique “Share and Reuse” model for RPCs, using IFCO packaging solutions we reduce water and energy consumption, solid waste and food waste, and ultimately reduce the overall environmental footprint of our supply chain.
In recognition of this commitment to a sustainable supply chain, we received this Sustainability Certificate for 2021.
Let’s see if we can beat these records in 2022!
