From recyclable packaging to waste-free manufacturing, businesses are taking new approaches to sustainability. In the latest episode of “The Dairy Download,” we go green with two guests bringing environmentally friendly practices to the dairy industry.
First up is Paul Snyder, who says sustainability is bringing a “wave of innovation” to the way we consume dairy. As executive vice president of stewardship for Tillamook County Creamery Association, he’s helping implement greener practices at the newly Certified B Corporation, a designation given to organizations that have achieved outstanding social and environmental standards.
Next up is Boris Munster, Tetra Pak’s key account director of contract manufacturing for the U.S. and Canada. Munster discusses the company’s evolution from manufacturing milk cartons to providing processing and packaging for a variety of dairy products. And he talks about Tetra Pak’s efforts to reduce its environmental footprint, from reducing plastic to using renewable materials.
