Our Sustainable Egg Packs
At Belview all our suppliers go through a Supplier Approval and Monitoring Process. Our egg packaging suppliers also go through our Sustainability Process. Both our pulp and plastic packs are from sustainable suppliers and information about the companies we use and their sustainability commitments are listed below.
Since 1965, as a private Austrian enterprise, we have become the number one global supplier of clear egg packaging, leading in technology and production. We are obliged to supply perfect packaging always with the environment in mind. Our egg packs are produced 100% out of recycled post-consumer material and are 100% recyclable; all the leftovers from production process are reused in the process immediately. The shape of our egg packs is coherent and they are ideal to stack. Due to their light weight and low density, they require 50% less space than conventional egg packs. This also halves the number of trucks needed for transportation, contributing to environmental sustainability. Additionally, Ovotherm egg packs only need half the storage capacity, while also requiring less labour in the packing station.
Our commitment to environment resulted in the WorldStar for Sustainability Award 2015. In 2015, greenhouse gases in extent of 18,000 metric tons of CO2 could be avoided due to our egg packaging made of R-PET. This corresponds to savings of 79 million kilometres covered by cars.
