IFCO Reaches 25th Anniversary, Celebrates 318,000 Metric Tons of Food Waste Avoided

PULLACH, GERMANY – As one of the leading reusable packaging solutions for fresh foods, IFCO is furthering its impact around the globe. Today the company released estimates quantifying the positive impact the company has had on the environment since its founding in 1992.

Our customers’ use of IFCO’s shared and reusable assets has been driving supply chains toward a global circular economy and advancing ‘zero-waste’ goals for 25 years. We are proud to work with our retailer and grower partners to improve the sustainability of the fresh food supply chain, and to nourish and improve the lives of people around the world.

Wolfgang Orgeldinger, CEO, IFCO

According to a recently published life cycle analysis and previous damage rate studies, over the past 25 years IFCO has:
Eliminated 3.4 billion kg of CO2 emissions, the equivalent of removing nearly 500,000 cars from the roads
Prevented more than 951,000 metric tonnes of solid waste, enough to fill approximately 104,000 dump trucks
• Reduced water consumption by 43 billion litres (11 billion gallons);
• Saved 317,982 metric tonnes of produce from damage and waste.

If all points along the fresh food value chain come together to consistently operate in the most sustainable way possible, future generations will thank us for passing onto them a better world than the one we inherited
