Post: Detpak Celebrates 10th FSC Certification Anniversary

Detpak South Africa is proud to have celebrated its 10th year of Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody Certification in February 2022.  (FSC-C109574)

Detpak designs, manufacture and supplies the foodservice, retail & industrial markets with world-class paper packaging products from its South African based factory, supported through the shareholding of Detmold, a global packaging supplier, who have been making brands shine since 1948.

“As a responsible supplier of packaging products, Detpak South Africa is proud of our long-standing relationship with FSC and the role we play in the preservation of forests and the forestry industry through the FSC certification program”, says  Carla Breytenbach, Detpak South Africa Marketing Manager.  “By displaying the FSC logo on our certified packaging, us and our customers, can rest assured that our paper is sustainably sourced taking into account the environmental, social and economic impacts on our forests.  And therefore we urge our customers to ask for FSC certified product”, she continues.  

At the beginning of our journey, FSC was only a requirement of the large global customers, but this has changed with many local large, medium and small customers also asking sustainability questions, or even asking for FSC certification by name. This is supported by the research that FSC completed globally which has  shown that  consumers in South African and many other countries, are asking for more sustainable products that do not harm our forests, or natural environment.

“We appreciate  Detpak’s commitment to using paper and board from sustainable managed forests, and the role they play informing their many clients of the importance of sustainable consumption and production in support of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 12. We thank Detpak  for their continued  support of FSC and wish them another 10 years of successful certification as they continue in their sustainability journey”. Gerard Busse, FSC Southern Africa Marketing and Communications Manager.  

“Within our business, aligning with FSC has given us the peace of mind that we are ‘Responsible by Design’ and has ensured that our internal systems and audits are up to par with global certification standards”, maintains Breytenbach. “It is really encouraging to see that the  FSC logo is now generally recognized – by  the general public and not just people in paper or packaging”.
