‘True Cost Accounting pilot demonstrates need for level playing field’

Tuesday, March 07, 2017
Waddinxveen, 2 March 2017 - At BIOFACH 2017, organic produce specialist Eosta, EY, and others presented two scoops: the first-ever True Cost P&L statement for a medium-sized company, and the first-ever True Cost results for the health impact of pesticide residues on produce. The results illustrate how externalised costs create an unequal playing field between companies that take sustainability seriously and companies that don’t care. Prominent German politicians and environmentalists Klaus Töpfer and Renate Künast called urgently for measures by the public sector - which often has to carry the burden of externalisation.

Nature & More to eliminate millions of packaging units with Natural Branding

Tuesday, March 07, 2017
Nature & More is going to mark organic fruits and vegetables with Natural Branding, in close cooperation with Swedish supermarket chain ICA, in order to save on plastic packaging. Natural Branding is the organic version of laser marking. The first organic products that will be sold with Natural Branding are avocados and sweet potatoes. Just on avocados alone, this will eliminate at least 725,000 packaging units in the coming year. With more products and customers, the number can easily run into millions.

Organic fruits do not need to be packed

Tuesday, March 07, 2017
In most supermarkets conventional apples are sold unpacked, while organic apples are packed in small plastic trays covered with foil. But that is not what organic consumers want, says Eosta packing expert Paul Hendriks. Of course, the EU requires organic and non-organic products to be distinguishable, but that does not mean that organic must be packed .. and certainly not in plastic. Hendriks helps supermarkets find other, more sustainable options saving a staggering 2.5 million plastic trays per year.

Pineapples finally reveal it all (including True Cost)

Tuesday, March 07, 2017
The organic pineapples that Nature & More distributes throughout Europe were already outspoken; they told consumers which grower in Costa Rica produced them and at which location, how sustainably and socially the grower went about it, and his e-mail address. But now the pineapples are also unveiling the hidden costs of pineapple cultivation, through a tag attached to the crown. The numbers make clear that organic is not too expensive—rather conventional is too cheap.
