Sats’ subsidiary, Country Foods, has entered into a strategic collaboration with multi-protein producer Hilton Food Group (Hilton Foods) to redesign Country Foods’ protein processing capability in Singapore.
The collaboration also extends to the supply of proteins from Hilton Foods to Country Foods.
Sats previously announced its ambition to halve food waste intensity in its Singapore operations from the 2021 baseline by 2028.
The airline services provider also pledged to introduce 100% sustainable packaging by 2030.
“The partnership is expected to enhance Country Foods’ operational efficiency and sustainable packaging capability to offer its food service and retail customers better quality products that are sustainably packaged,” says Sats in its Dec 20 statement.
“Increasingly, customers are demanding packaging solutions that are sustainable. Hilton Foods is the best-in-class partner with the know-how and technology to drive scale and productivity in large scale protein processing. They have the capability to produce packaging that does not require the separation of materials for recycling, and packaging for chilled proteins that do not need soaker pads. That eliminates a lot of packaging waste. We believe this partnership will help Sats and Country Foods advance our sustainability goals,” says Stanley Goh, CEO of food solutions at Sats.
