At Castello we are working towards a future ambition where our packaging is 100% recyclable and renewable by 2026.
The carton board on our mold cheese is already 100% sourced from FSC, and we now also use less plastic in our packaging. Here at Castello, we are committed to the journey ahead and will continue to share our successes.
We kicked off 2022 by revamping of our cream cheese rings. To reduce plastic, we replaced the plastic lid with an easily recyclable cardboard sleeve. The remaining plastic tray is now also fully recyclable and made of 80% recycled material.
In 2021, we finished converting our mold cheese cardboard wrappers to FSC certified suppliers of cardboard, as seen here on our Castello Creamy Blue. We now have a total of 13 different products that feature the FSC mark.
We don't think it's right to put looks ahead of sustainability. While black plastic trays, which we previously used on products like our Burger Blue Slices, might have looked appealing, the color black makes it hard to recycle into other products. This did not align with our goals, and as such, we got rid of black plastic. Today, Castello is 100% free of black plastic packaging.
At Castello, we continuously strive to put a creative spin on traditional favorites as well as our own unique creations. Our talented cheese makers across Denmark and around the world have been crafting hundreds of cheese recipes to feed your senses since 1893. Here, you can explore our full range of delicious flavors, textures and types of Castello cheese, from deliciously creamy mold cheeses, to beautifully balanced hard cheeses.
For years our dairies have been continuously working on reducing the amount of cheese that's wasted. From taking daily walks to spot waste issues, to introducing renewable energy to keep the cheeses churning. Discover more here.
