Frischpack expands prepack and sustainability
The Frischpack Group in Germany, which includes Frischpack in Mailling and Baackes & Heimes in Viersen, is adding investment at its Viersen location, with expansion to the prepack area there.
In Mayk a new packaging and cutting machine will be installed for cutting and packaging cheese. At the same time, the Baackes & Heimes in Viersen has adapted its logo and website. The Frischpack logo features a yellow cheese slice, wrapped in a green border, while Baackes & Heimes appears with a red border around the yellow cheese slice.
“We are delighted with our new look and feel, for which we are keeping our established red as a recognition feature,” explains Stefan Welter, managing director of Baackes & Heimes. “Together with Frischpack we can fall back on decades of comprehensive cheese competence and well-founded know-how, a win-win situation for us and for our customers.”
The Frischpack Mailling site has been producing climate-neutrally since 2020 and is publishing its third sustainability report this year. In 2021, this should also be achieved for the location in Viersen. To this end, Baackes & Heimes has committed itself through Climate Partner, a reliable and certified partner in the field of climate neutrality, to the same climate projects that Frischpack supports.
Since the beginning of 2021, both locations have been working climate-neutrally.
A certified energy and environmental management system according to ISO 50001: 2018 and ISO 14001: 2015 is planned. Preparations should be completed by the end of this year.
“We have our sights set on the first joint sustainability report for the Frischpack Group for 2023,” Dieter Baur, managing director of the Frischpack Group says.
