Global sustainable food packaging manufacturer Sabert has released its annual ‘Sustainability Report’, detailing its advanced packaging initiatives and sustainability efforts across 2022.
The report includes customer partnerships and critical investments made by the company to reinforce its commitment to contribute to a more sustainable future.
In 2022, Sabert launched a total of 268 new products globally, out of which approximately 81% are claimed to fall within the ‘sustainable’ category.
The company commenced various automation projects, including the installation of a new ‘inline labeller’ at its facility in New Jersey, US.
The new technology further helped Sabert to minimise the energy demands for labelling operations by approximately 93%.
Sabert also enhanced efforts at its fully-owned Nuvida recycling plant.

This facility in particular uses post-consumer and post-industrial waste to manufacture high-quality resin that can then be further utilised for food packaging and other processes.
Another achievement claimed by the business during 2022 was that more than 99% of the secondary packaging waste produced by the company, including plastic sacs, cardboard and pallets, was either reused or recycled.
Sabert Sustainability director Rebecca Locker said: “Food packaging plays a vital role in creating a sustainable food ecosystem.
“We understand that we have an environmental responsibility to help protect the planet for future generations. Rooted in 40 years of innovation, Sabert has invested in research and development to bring new, more environmentally conscious products to market across all our product lines.
“Our manufacturing facilities continue to make significant progress toward optimising energy and water consumption while minimising waste throughout our operations.”
Additionally, the previous year provided various opportunities for Sabert to engage with industry partners to support legislation and policies designed to encourage innovation and the adoption of sustainable food packaging across the sector.
The company has also pledged to completely eliminate any intentionally added per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances from its entire pulp and paper products range by December this year.
