FROM SEED TO BAG: COOPERATION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT LEADERS

Published: 05/03/2024

Working together for the common good

 

In 2018, Lantmännen Unibake, a global leader in bakery products, took the next step in its mission to promote value and ecology by choosing high-quality, Polish-made cotton products - Mart`s Bags.

They decided to change their existing plastic products to a more eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing form in the form of cotton bags and pouches.

By changing the packaging, Lantmännen Unibake showed that it not only cares about the quality of its products, but also about the future of the planet. The introduction of Mart's Bags products was also an excellent opportunity to promote environmental values and educate customers and employees about the benefits of using cotton products.

This collaboration has become one element in the company's approach to sustainable and green development. The company has realized the seriousness of climate change and has decided to take more responsibility in this regard. Their plan calls for multi-year actions in several segments, among the most important are:

  • Climate
  • Health
  • People

Concerned about the environment, the company has adopted a comprehensive strategy that allows it not only to play an important role in international activities, but also to use its position to make a positive impact on the environment, health and human potential in every country where it is present.

 

 

Goal - Sustainable development

 

Sustainability comes naturally to them, because as farmers they have cared about the environment for generations. But with the global climate crisis, the company has decided to do even more to protect it. It's time to redouble our efforts and do even more so that our children and grandchildren can enjoy health and safety.

In this context, cooperation with other companies is crucial. One example of such cooperation is the partnership with Marts Bags - Manufacturer of cotton goods. A leader in the industry, producing more than a million bags a year for customers in Poland as well as throughout the European Union. The cotton used by Mart's Bags is Fairtrade certified, which means that the raw cotton is grown and traded in a fair way, and is directly traceable. In this way, the company supports fair trade, which is extremely important in this day and age. And the organic cotton used by Mart's Bags is subject to the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organically produced natural fibers - GOTS. This standard sets high-level environmental requirements throughout the production chain and requires that a number of social criteria be met. The products selected during the collaboration with Marts are not only unique in terms of sheer product appeal and quality, but have also been produced in accordance with sustainable principles. This is an ideal combination for Lantmännen Unibake, which places great importance on the entire production chain.

 

Shared values

Both Lantmännen Unibake and Marts believe in social responsibility and environmental protection. Through their products and activities, both companies contribute to reducing their environmental impact.

The cooperation undertaken by Lantmännen Unibake is not only another step in the pursuit of sustainability, but also proof that by uniting forces and acting together we can change the world for the better. This cooperation shows that even the largest players in the market, like Lantmännen Unibake, can and should get involved in environmental issues.

The last advertising product selected, combines a unique design, in which this recycled cotton bag becomes an advertising medium and a timeless holiday gift that emphasizes the brand's vision.

 

Leaders in caring for the environment

 

Lantmännen Unibake is part of the history of bread, which is one of the oldest and most important sources of food in the world, while Mart`s Bags proves that it is possible to become an industry leader while caring for the well-being of customers and the planet. It is an inspiring example for other companies and organizations that also want to act in a sustainable and responsible manner. In the changing world of business, values such as responsibility and concern for the environment are extremely important. We believe that other companies will also be inspired by Lantmännen Unibake's example and take similar actions to protect the planet. After all, only through joint effort and commitment can we change the world for the better for us and future generations. Cooperation with others is a key element in this mission, because only by working together can we achieve the goal we dream of.

"One small bag of recycling is one big step toward changing the world for the better."
