Mexico City, Mexico, November 14, 2023 – Grupo Herdez has been recognized, along with 61 other prominent companies, by the company Bio Pappel and its Titan business unit, for the use of paper and cardboard packaging made with 100% recycled raw material through sustainable processes.

Bio Pappel is the largest manufacturer of paper and paper products in Mexico and Latin America and is among the 10 largest producers in North America. Bosque Urbano is the circular economy model through which paper and cardboard is recycled on a large scale, and to which it has added suppliers and allies to promote the design and use of sustainable packaging.

The Bosque Urbano Award recognizes the sustainability efforts and strategies of companies that use sustainable packaging, promote recycling and the correct management of paper and cardboard waste to give it new life, thus helping to combat climate change.

For Grupo Herdez, circularity is an important part of its business model. As part of the company’s sustainability strategy, in its production processes it uses local suppliers, natural resources efficiently and seeks greater reincorporation of waste into new production chains. 98.1% of its packaging is recyclable and reusable, and in 2022 alone, 84.3% of its waste was recycled.

This recognition represents and drives Grupo Herdez’s commitment to a better world through a sustainable value chain and environmental protection, leaving a valuable legacy for future generations.
