Sustainability

The importance of sustainability in our industry…

The issue of sustainability in fruit juice is broad. It falls across the following areas:

  • Growing (sustainability at farm-level both environmentally and socially)
  • Processing
  • Packaging
  • Transportation
  • Distribution
  • Consumer

The BFJA supports Juice CSR from our sister organisation, the European Fruit Juice Association (AIJN).

The BFJA supports other organisations in their work including the British Soft Drinks Association, the Food and Drink Federation and the British Retail Consortium. We welcome the government’s five-year environment plan and the latest Courtauld Commitment to reduce plastic waste.

We would welcome hearing from members and others in the industry about their work to reduce their carbon footprint and general environmental initiatives. Please contact: info@bfja.org to have your news and information featured.
