The best way to reduce packaging waste is… not to use packaging. The greatest savings can be made by switching wherever possible to the supply of raw materials in bulk. 

The best way to reduce packaging waste is… not to use packaging. The greatest savings can be made by switching wherever possible to the supply of raw materials in bulk. For various logistical and technical reasons, however, this is not always possible. Therefore, Deceuninck considers the use of 100% reusable packaging – such as flow bins – a valid alternative to the supply of raw materials in bulk. Flow bins are metallic containers of 1.250 kg which are emptied next to the production line and which can be refilled once they are returned to the supplier. Flow bins can be reused virtually indefinitely.
