VAUGHAN, Ont. — Swiss Chalet, and its packaging partner WestRock, have won the PAC Global Award for Sustainable Design for its new paper packaging. Launched nationally in October 2021, the paper packaging will effectively remove more than 31 million units of plastic packaging per year from the system.
“We are excited and honoured to be recognized for this award,” says Laurie Allison-Jones, VP of Marketing for Swiss Chalet. “Swiss Chalet and Recipe Unlimited Corporation is committed to operating our business in a sustainable way and reducing our impact on the environment.”
“Partnerships like this, where we can support Swiss Chalet in their sustainability efforts, are one of the most rewarding parts of our business,” says Patrick Kivits, president of Consumer Packaging at WestRock. “Leveraging our comprehensive portfolio of sustainable products enables us to create a fully recyclable solution that helps our customers, and ultimately their customers, achieve a more sustainable future.”
The 2022 Global PAC Award winners were announced at the Inclusive Opportunities & Universal Design Summit held virtually on Feb. 8.
