4Legs Pet Food were winners at the recent Autralian Packaging Covenant Organisations (APCO) annual awards on August 23. 4Legs was recognised for its achievements in waste minimisation and reduction.

APCO enables businesses, government and industry to design and utilise more sustainable packaging throughout the supply chain to reduce the environmental impact of packaging in Australia. APCO’s annual awards celebrate the innovative and outstanding achievements of its members in these areas.

Winners were selected based on their performance in sustainable packaging design, comprehensive recycling systems and product stewardship activities to develop sustainable supply chains.

To take out an award for the food and beverages category, 4Legs made extensive efforts to embed sustainability principles with suppliers and customers, resulting in packaging optimisations and reduced waste.

“With the spotlight now firmly on the waste and recycling industries, there has never been a better time for Australian businesses to reduce their environmental footprint. We commend all our finalists and award winners who are leading their industries towards a more sustainable future, and toward an Australia where packaging resources are used and disposed of wisely to minimise our environmental impact,” said Brooke Donnelly, APCO CEO (Interim).

“Being part of the Australian Packaging Covenant allows us to make a meaningful contribution to the national sustainability agenda,” said Olivia Ratten, 4Legs Sales and Marketing Manager.

“We believe in creating natural, healthy food for pets and taking action to reduce our environmental footprint, ensuring our customers are getting a product they can feel good about.”
