Packaging materials primarily represent a barrier that allows us to protect our products and extend their shelf-life leading to reduced food waste. Once these requirements are satisfied, we have always been looking for new materials that meet the needs of environmental sustainability, to ensure proper
management, even at the end of the product’s life.
OVERALL CONSUMPTION IN 2019
Some of our packages are still obtained from plastic. We have managed, over the years, to ensure that all our plastic packaging is 100% recyclable, but we are relentlessly looking for alternative, more sustainable or regenerated materials.
Confronting the years 2019 and 2020, it is clear how consumption has been reduced by gradually replacing plastic packaging with other non-plastic or regenerated PET-based materials. By way of example, the replacement of a PVC box with one made of paper and cardboard helped us to save 256kg of plastic.
The installation of two water dispensers led us to save over 10,000 PET bottles, for a saving of almost 500kg of plastic. The rest of the materials still in PET are entirely produced starting from regenerated material, obtained from recycling.
Overall, in 2020 we see a reduction of 870 kg of plastic (36% less) compared to 2019

Paper is the most used packaging material. 100% of the virgin paper and cardboard used are FSC certified and therefore come from responsibly managed forests.
All the paper converting material is entirely recyclable. We have always limited the use of packaging, using reusable and washable boxes for storing the product for internal use.
As early as 2019, we have replaced reams of office printing paper with 100% recycled paper. From this simple change, we have saved
OUR GOALS IN TERMS OF PAPER CONSUMPTION:
REPLACING FSC PAPER WITH RECYCLED PAPER

Aluminium is a material that has always been used for wrapping chocolate and is 100% recyclable.
In the future we will hardly be able to ignore its use; the wrapping function of chocolate performed by this material allows us to prolong its life, as well as to protect it from deterioration, reducing potential food waste. In the future, we are committed to incentivizing consumers to separate the small closing seal, for greater efficiency in the recycling phase.
OUR OBJECTIVES IN TERMS OF ALUMINUM CONSUMPTION:
WE WILL MAKE MORE CLARIFY THE INDICATIONS ABOUT THE DISPOSAL OF
ALUMINUM, TO ENCOURAGE ITS RECYCLING.
