BIO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING | DAIRY PRODUCTS

At Sigma, our top commitment is to you and your family; therefore, as part of our effort to build a greener future, we developed eco-friendly packaging for some of your favourite products. Get to know them all!

Let’s build a “Bio-friendly” future together

Have you ever wondered what the future will look like? We do. Everyday. That’s how we know that in order to have a brighter future, it is not enough to imagine it: you have to build it yourself.

We want your children, and your children’s children, to have the opportunity to experience the world as fully as you do: enjoying its seas and beaches, exploring its jungles and forests; marvelling at its flora and fauna.

 

To make it possible, every day we do our bit with the development of our eco-friendly packaging: packaging that reduces our influence on the environment. This way, we reduce our ecological footprint, and maximize the life years of our planet while protecting your favourite products with the same quality as usual.

 

What do you say? Care to join our mission?

Thinking Ahead

As of today, 36% of our packaging is Bio-friendly; however, this is just the beginning. Our daily goal is to find new and better innovations that allow us to continue reducing our ecological footprint.

Recycled

This symbol means that your packaging is made from reclaimed and reprocessed materials; thus, reducing plastic waste pollution.

How do I contribute to the production of recycled products?
Recycling! The following materials are all recyclable:

Paper and Cardboard: boxes, envelopes, magazines, newspapers, brochures, etc.
Plastics: bottles and containers of different types, caps, disposable dishes.
Metals: aluminium cans, beverage cans, deodorant cans, keys.
Glass: bottles and jars (not broken). For example, the packages of Crema Norteñita!

Remember that in order to be recyclable, all materials must be clean and dry; if they are dirty or wet, they cannot be reused.

Biodegradable

This symbol can be found on packaging able to turn itself into simpler, less pollutant material over the years.

How do they do it?

Thanks to its placement in biologically active landfills; that is, surrounded by microorganisms and fungi. It is important to mention that this biodegradation is anaerobic (it does not need oxygen). Impressive, right?

The degradation of our bio-friendly packaging is not immediate, it takes 5 years under the right conditions. Other plastics take up to 500 years to degrade! We managed to beat the process and gain a few years of advantage, don’t you think?

Discover the advantages

of recycled packaging

Preservation of natural resources

Recycling makes use of pre-existent raw materials, so there is no need to obtain new ones from nature.

Energy saving

Manufacturing packaging from scratch involves more processes than recycling an existing one. By recycling, we save up to a 25% energy!

Pollution reduction

Opting for recycled packaging prevents tons of waste from ending up in our seas and oceans, preserving our marine ecosystems.

Oil saving

The main raw material in the production of plastic is oil. By choosing recycled packaging, we reduce the consumption of a non-renewable resource.

Ecological footprint reduction

Biodegradable packaging returns to its place of origin: the earth. In addition, since they are not common plastics, they do not release toxic chemicals that harm us or the ecosystems around them!

5-Year Decomposition

Properly disposing of these packaging guarantees its decomposition in a minimum of 5 years! Preventing them from reaching our rivers and seas.
