Increase the percentage of responsible packaging

Cantine scolaire

The Group believes that the development of a circular economy requires reinventing its guests’ consumption habits in order to limit the generation of waste, especially plastic.

To reduce fossil fuel extraction and limit the generation of waste related to its activities, the Group has set itself the goal to increase the percentage of its reusable and / or recyclable packaging and consumables (cutlery, glasses, food containers, straws, etc.).  The materials used can be bio-sourced (polylactic acid, corn, sugar cane pulp, bamboo, etc.), compostable or biodegradable.
