Need Specific Advice from Dollard Packaging on Sustainability?

If you would like some specific help with understanding sustainability, we can advise you.

Demonstrating to your customers that your packaging is sustainable: For example, if you are a food manufacturer, we can help you demonstrate to your customers that your packaging is sustainable. For example, we can show you how our sustainable boards are traceable right back to the forest in which the tree grew. We can clarify what terms such as FSC-approved boards, cellulose window film versus fossil fuel-based window film, compostable, recyclable etc actually mean. We can explain what being members of Repak, Sedex actually mean.

Sustainable Claims: We can explain what claims you can and can’t make about the sustainability of your packaging that we have produced for you.

Sustainable Boards: We can also advise you about what type of board is suitable for your packaging, depending on the conditions in which it will be used e.g. freezer board for frozen products, moisture-barrier boards for foods with a high moisture/grease content etc
