Ajinomoto Developed Environmental-Friendly “Mono-Material” Packaging
KUALA LUMUR, 9 July 2021 – The Ajinomoto Group (Ajinomoto) has come together with their customers and the community to contribute to a more harmonious coexistence with the planet. In an effort to realise a sustainable “Recycling-Oriented Society”, Ajinomoto has introduced a highly recyclable mono-material packaging with the aim to achieve zero-waste, mainly through the recycling of materials and chemicals.
To achieve this, Ajinomoto strives to promote the maximisation of resource usage by reducing the quantity of plastics used in the packaging and developing brand new materials and technologies that will allow them to be recycled as resources instead of waste. The mono-material packaging is made with materials that are environmentally-friendly which compose of 90% of the same material.
In line with The Ajinomoto Group Creating Shared Value (ASV) initiative to promote global sustainability, Ajinomoto (Malaysia) Berhad (AMB) has pioneered the adoption of mono-material in Malaysia for the packaging of its highest selling product, the 72g AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning (Flavour Enhancer), since May 2021. With plans to take this initiative further, AMB targets future expansion of the use of mono-material in other AJI-NO-MOTO® packaging. The ‘Recycle’ logo will be placed at the back of its new mono-material packaging to encourage consumers to recycle the package post-consumption.
With these efforts, Ajinomoto aims and hopes to achieve zero-plastic waste by the financial year 2030. Let’s care for our environment as we “Eat Well, Live Well” together with Ajinomoto.
