Macfarlane Labels recognises its responsibilities to the environment and we aim to make a positive environmental impact wherever we can.

Macfarlane Labels can also support you in meeting your environmental and sustainability targets. We can:

  • Reduce the environmental impact of your products by reducing the weight of the material they are manufactured from
  • Make your pack easier to recycle by using complimentary materials, or use fully recycled self- adhesive materials. (We already recycle the liner waste from our sites)
  • Offer non-fossil alternatives. We can suggest alternatives to plastic based self-adhesive materials including compostable and biodegradable materials.
  • Our Reseal-it® systems can reduce food waste by keeping products fresher for longer and promoting portion control

Our Kilmarnock factory is a 100% landfill free site.

Reducing food waste with intelligent timer labels

The Pull Timer is an award-winning, time temperature indicator that has been designed to provide customers with a clearer understanding of how long products have been opened in the fridge.

This helps to ensure customers enjoy their products when they are best to eat and reduces the amount of unnecessary food waste that comes from our households.

Macfarlane Group has a responsibility to ensure that through its business operations it impacts positively on society. In order to achieve this, we have a series of programmes focusing on environmental care, improving customer experience and increasing employee engagement.

To support our ongoing commitment to improve our environmental performance we pursue the following objectives:
  • To ensure compliance with all applicable environmental legislation and regulations
  • To reduce emissions pollution
  • To improve waste management practices
  • To reduce the consumption of natural resources
  • To continuously assess our environmental performance
