Breakfast cereals manufacturer OneDayMore has successfully converted its packaging to a more sustainable solution, manufactured by Sonoco.
OneDayMore strives to help people take care of their health – and the planet – with its natural, nutritious, and easy-to-prepare breakfast products, including muesli, granola and porridge. The company said the next, obvious path for its development was a move towards more sustainable packaging – and Sonoco helped it to achieve this goal by converting its current packaging to EnviroCan™ with paper-bottom.
Hoping to increase the uptake in recycling by end users, Wojciech Mlodawski, Procurement Director, at OneDayMore said, “We wanted to design our packaging in a way that used the most environmentally friendly raw materials possible, while also ensuring consumers have no doubts about recycling the packaging at home, once the cereal inside was consumed.”
Previously, OneDayMore was using Sonoco’s metal-end cans, but it has since added paper-bottomed cans to its packaging lines in 13 European markets – and it hopes to expand into more. Its end goal is to have converted all of its packaging to paper by the end of 2024.
Mateusz Kurij, Business Development Manager, Sonoco said, “Sonoco has a responsibility to adopt and maintain sustainable practices, allowing us to develop packaging solutions with minimal impact to the environment. We are proud to be part of OneDayMore’s journey to make its packaging easier to recycle and meet their sustainability goals.”
Mlodawski recognises that consumers perceive the paper-bottom can as being a more eco-friendly packaging solution and the response to it having converted its packaging has been very positive. “We had a great experience working with Sonoco during our packaging converting process. The company was professional in terms of the product quality, delivery timings and customer service that it delivered. We also appreciated the flexible production timings and volumes, which allowed us to match our fluctuating production plans.”
