We started cooperation with Bower, the Swedish company that invented the packaging recycling application. Thanks to the cooperation, customers who buy Halva products can recycle the packaging and earn money. For each package recycled through the application, you get points, which can be converted into money or donated to charity.
"Together with Bower, we are expanding our important responsibility work by offering our customers a service that ensures that the packaging is recycled correctly when our products have been consumed. The market has been missing a solution that enables direct communication between the consumer and the producer. With the Bower recycling application, we encourage consumers to recycle packaging, and in addition, the consumer is paid a reward for the effort caused by recycling," says Jean Karavokyros, CEO of Halva.
Halva invests in sustainable development by reducing emissions, using more environmentally friendly packaging materials and increasing waste recycling with the following measures:
Last year, we implemented several significant measures to reduce energy consumption. These measures have reduced the confectionery factory's carbon footprint by approximately 25 percent. Through good work and a responsible way of working, the world's best licorice and salmiakki are produced in Finland.
In 2022, we have taken measures that have reduced our carbon footprint by another 15-20%.
Our goal is that by 2025 our business will be completely carbon neutral.
