Responsible Manufacturing Practices
We regularly assess and update our manufacturing practices to ensure our processing is as sustainable as possible, and is in line with, or ahead of industry standards. We are always aiming to reduce our inputs, including lowering our power and water usage, and minimising the use of solvent-based inks and adhesives.
At Detpak, we are also mindful of our own use of packaging, and we use the minimal amount of packaging when delivering our products to customers. Our waste is always disposed of in line with Environmental Protection Agency approved practices.
We maintain the most highly recognised global standards for food safety and quality consistency, including ISO 22000, ISO 9001 and BRC accreditation certifications. Our products are manufactured in a food packaging grade environment so our customers can be assured that they achieve the highest quality standards.
Detpak was one of the first signatories to the Australian Packaging Covenant, a sustainable packaging initiative that encourages businesses to reduce the environmental impacts of consumer packaging. We promote sustainable packaging design, increased recycling rates and efforts to reduce packaging litter. As part of our membership we submit annual reports to demonstrate our progress against a rigorous set of environmental targets.
