Sustainability within Prodairy
Prodairy produces dairy products which include long life milk, cultured milk, dairy blend, ‘maheu’ under brand names such as Life, Masi and Revive.
26 dairy farms, including Mafuro Farming, supply Prodairy with milk. The company has a supplier code of good conduct and carries out audits to ensure that the farms produce top quality milk.
Key Sustainability Highlights
- Through the investment in a new machinery, Prodairy introduced a new Tetra Edge packaging in January 2022. The new packaging is made of 88% natural renewable plant based resources. This includes the screw cap and coating of its cartons which have been certified by the international not for-profit, multi stakeholder governance group, Bonsucro, as they are made from byproducts from sustainable sugar cane production. The paper used in the Tetra Edge packaging is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, sourced from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources.
- The Tetra Pak machinery was delivered in wood packaging. The wood was used to build canteen chairs, garden yard tables and storm drain covers.
Prodairy works with the local NGO – Clean Marondera – and provides them Tetra Pak boxes that the NGO uses to produce carry bags, which provide a regular income for the NGO.
