Results & Conclusion

Despite some differences between the five production sites – Cairo, Lebork, Lommel, Oudenhoorn and Sint-Truiden – we saw an overall increase in the use of cardboard (boxes) and foil (bags). This increase is due to the transition phase we are currently experiencing, where different packaging configurations coexist with each other.

Cardboard cases cardboard (kg) / production volume (tonne)

We see a 3.5% increase in the usage of cardboard per tonne product. The main reason for the increase in total used cases is changes in potato offering that require different packaging configurations and due to different customer requirements globally.

Plastic foil bags foil (kg) / production volume (tonne)

We see a 1.2% increase in the usage of foil per tonne product. This is what we expected. Besides a reduction of foil thickness, resulting in lower kg foil per tonne produced, we foresee the amount of foil per tonne to increase before it will decrease. To minimise our total usage of packaging, packaging waste and CO2 emission, we plan to use more optimised box dimensions which usually means larger cases. To make this possible, we allow for a small increase in the use of foil per case.
