There is an ever-growing consumer demand for sustainably driven companies. Consumers want to be assured about the environmental impacts of a food’s packaging. They also want to know that the food they are purchasing is organic, sustainably harvested, etc. As a response, companies in the food industry are running LCAs, not only on their packaging but their products as well. 

Sustainability Case Study

“Bhoomi was selected for a packaging study led by Trayak, its sustainability consultants and in partnership with the Climate Collaborative.  Since sustainability is a top priority for Bhoomi, this was an amazing opportunity as we had been working towards coming up with a 100% sugarcane-based packaging for our product. Trayak’s team was highly professional and collaborative that helped us clearly see the impact of our packaging and reach closer to our regenerative impact goals.  In addition, Trayak’s work allowed us to effectively communicate our results to our customers and stakeholders. For example – This study allowed us to learn that switching to a sugarcane bio HDPE bottle will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 89.5% percentage and reduce fossil fuel consumption by 62.6%. Their analysis goes deeper into the indicators and the simple indicators provide pieces of information that are relatable as well as easily digestible for the audience. Trayak’s study was easily above and beyond our expectations!”

Quickly Compare Alternatives

“Working with Trayak was excellent. It’s highly likely we would have been going down a less-impactful road if we didn’t partner with Trayak on this case study!  The case study with Trayak allowed Boulder Organic Foods to quickly compare our current packaging with alternatives. The simple indicators allow us to easily communicate results and recommendations with stakeholders. We’ve identified two additional configurations that this work affects positively, which are outside of our initial scope. This means when we are able to implement, we will see even greater reduction in fossil fuel consumption, water use, and greenhouse gas emissions than the case study quantified.”

Informed Decisions for R&D

“COMPASS allows our Research & Development team to easily compare the sustainability attributes and make informed decisions about our packaging formats.”

“We’ve used COMPASS to baseline the impact of our packaging and compare to many alternative options. Some alternatives were far less environmentally beneficial, according to the LCA data within COMPASS, than claimed by their manufacturers. We’ve been able to identify packaging solutions that are better environmentally and for our customers.”
