Sustainability represents a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Reuse of materials will result in less waste and minimize damage to the environment. Our focus is to ensure a sustainable future, and we are continuously working on how we can optimize our processes & packaging to become even more sustainable.
Our products are made from the very best natural ingredients; From licorice roots to cocoa beans, coffee beans from Kieni in Kenya, vanilla from Madagascar, organic chili from a small farm in Denmark, and wild berries handpicked from the forest.
We are deeply dependent on a globally healthy and sustainable nature, and we must do everything we can to take care of our planet.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals. These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
At LAKRIDS BY BÜLOW we focus our work within three goals where we as a confectionery manufacturer have the possibility to really make an impact.
DEFINITION: Our current reliance on fossil fuels is unsustainable and harmful to the planet, which is why we must change the way we produce and consume energy. Implementing these new energy solutions as fast as possible is essential to counter climate change, one of the biggest threats to our own survival.
DEFINITION: Our planet has provided us with an abundance of natural resources. But we have not utilized them responsibly and currently consume far beyond what our planet can provide. We must learn how to use and produce in sustainable ways that will reverse the harm that we have inflicted on the planet.
DEFINITION: The Global Goals can only be met if we work together. International investments and support is needed to ensure innovative technological development, fair trade and market access, especially for developing countries. To build a better world, we need to be supportive, empathetic, inventive, passionate, and above all, cooperative.
Our new jar is made from 100% recycled plastic. We will remove the metal from the seal of the packaging. The lid is made of virgin plastic, but we are working hard on finding a more sustainable solution for this part of the packaging. Once you have enjoyed your licorice and the jar is empty, we encourage you to help us protect the planet by placing it in the container for plastic waste – allowing it to have a new life.
"Our jars have a past - by recycling you can give them a future"
- Johan Bülow
We are constantly working on reducing the amount of packaging and the impact of the materials we use. Our gift solutions are made from 70% recycled cardboard. The empty carton packages should be disposed of in a responsible manner and the carton should be separated from the plastic tray.
Do you have questions? We have answers
No, we're not 100% sustainable yet. We are constantly working on improving and reducing our environmental impact. Among other things, our first step is making our jars from 100% sustainable plastic and use recycled cardboard for our giftboxes.
Sustainable luxury means that we strive to create a luxurious, high quality product experience that meets the desire of our present customers, without compromising the ability for future generations to meet their own needs.
