Winner Flamingo Produce

Winner Flamingo Produce

Flamingo has demonstrated that final packing at source, although initially daunting, is well worth the work and realises some significant benefits. Faced with increasing costs, challenges on single use packaging, uncertainty about labour security and an obligation to reduce food waste it took significant mitigating steps by moving one of the parts of the process back down the supply chain. Moving from shrink wrapping and labelling to flow-wrapping with pre-printed films will ultimately increase recyclability to nearly 100% without any significant oncosts and shelf life, thereby helping food waste obligations.

Judges' Comment

"Flamingo has re-engineered its focus in line with issues facing all growers and packers of fresh produce. By working with, empowering and enabling its supply base to help,resulting in benefits for all."
