- Natural and high-quality raw materials
- Considerate waste management
- Sustainable packaging solutions
Sustainable management, the ambition to become an attractive employer and the conservation of resources all form an integral part of the Frischpack mission statement. Our guiding principle to “whet your appetite for cheese” just about sums up this approach. We pursue an aspiration to achieve the highest quality, and this at all levels. For it is only through consistent, comprehensive activities in social, ecological and economic sectors that we will also be able to do justice to this principle as part of our sustainability strategy.
The crux of our strategy is to offer our customers additional benefits through the strict regard for our sustainability aspects. To do so, we consistently make use of our fundamental strengths, such as our passion for cheese, our highest demands on quality, the most up-to-date technology and our expertise for customised solutions.
We defined the fundamental fields of action for our sustainability strategy back in 2015.
In the five relevant fields of action, twelve central themes have become apparent, themes which Frischpack views as being significant:

These eleven key objectives set out our strategic direction:
All in all we wish to use them to accomplish the profitable and long-term expansion of our markets. Our integrated management system is a fundamental building block in the pursuit and achievement of our strategic goals. You can find more information on this in our sustainability report.

The most up-to-date technology and optimised production processes led to a 50 percent reduction in cheese waste and an improvement in the number of complaints.
Together with our value-stream mapping and planning optimisations, the introduction of the 5S system now guarantees an increase in efficiency, profitability, quality and occupational safety.
Between 2016 and 2018 Frischpack invested around 15 million euros in upgrades and automating existing packing lines, as well as in the implementation of a machine data logging system.
