Plant-Based Crew ensures that our production and logistics partners have the same values as we do, and we work with these companies to achieve our sustainability goals. Throughout the production of our oat milk, we work closely with our factory in Germany to cut down on waste.
We are working with our German producers to ensure that we don’t waste a single drop! As with all production processes, some wastage will unfortunately occur. However, it is our goal to reduce this waste as much as possible. We’re currently on a mission to better understand all the factors that contribute to wastage (both during the production process and once the product arrives in your home!). Right now, we are collecting as much data as possible on actual production yield vs expected yield, quantity of packaging paper being discarded, and loading efficiency.
Once we have this data, we will have a better idea of how to minimise wastage during our oat milk production process. As for the transportation of our products, we are aware that importing products from overseas is not environmentally friendly. To address this issue, we always ship in bulk to ensure that we make the most of every shipment. In addition, we work with logistics partners who have clear sustainability goals that are aligned with Plant-Based Crew’s values. For example, we chose our current logistics partner because they had clear environmental goals and are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint. For example, in their 2020 Corporate Social Responsibility Report, the company lists out key goals and requirements for ensuring that their CO2 emissions are reduced. It is very important to Plant Based Crew that we only work with companies that share our vision of a greener future.
