Sustainability within Alpha Packaging
Alpha Packaging is one of the leading corrugated box and egg tray manufacturer in Zimbabwe, with the ability to export its products to the rest of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.
The product range includes corrugated boxes, tobacco cartons, egg trays and paper bags. Any off-cuts from the main production process are recycled and used to produce the egg trays. The company also recycles waste from third parties used in the production of the egg trays.
Key Sustainability Highlights

- The production of egg trays is so successful, the company has built a second egg tray plant.
- During 2022, 743 tonnes of recycled paper was used for its egg tray production.
- Solar power has been installed for the offices, reducing reliance on diesel run generators during power outages.
