Recycling & Repurposing
Biotta not only believes in producing high quality, functional juices, but also places great value on being environmentally conscious:
- Biotta sells the unusable by-products from the processed fruits and vegetables to farmers for use as organic animal pomace, ensuring that every element of the crop is put to good use.
- Biotta uses only glass bottles, providing the best product protection and allowing for full retention of flavor, content and nutrients as well as recyclability.
- Biotta’s labels are printed on FSC-certified paper in an effort to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.
- Biotta’s marketing materials are all printed on recycled paper.
Forest Stewardship Council
For Biotta, sustainability and environmental compatibility are important elements of our company philosophy. A fair interaction between man and nature should be reflected in our marketing activities, which is why we use only FSC-approved marketing materials.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an independent multi-stakeholder organization that brings parties together in the interest of promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. It does this by setting standards, developing a certification system and labeling products from FSC-certified forests in a manner easily recognizable to consumers. The FSC was founded in 1993 and its headquarters are in Bonn, Germany. Its goal: to promote ecologically sound, socially responsible and economically feasible management of forests worldwide. The balance of power created by the structure of the FSC, with an Environmental Chamber, a Social Chamber and an Economic Chamber, makes it possible to reach this goal without the interests of any one party dominating.
The FSC standards are made up of 10 principles and criteria for responsible forest management with global accreditation, which is adapted according to national conditions. A credible traceability of forest products is the main criterion for the Chain of Custody certification. Chain of Custody certification allows producers of forest products as well as their certified products to carry the FSC label. Specialized agencies are responsible for monitoring the adherence to the strict standards. Worldwide, in the last 10 years, over 54 million hectares of forest in 60 countries were certified according to FSC principles and criteria. More than 3900 companies worldwide hold Chain of Custody Certificates. Numerous retailers and other suppliers in Europe, North and South America and Asia already have thousands of products made from FSC wood and other forest resources in their product lines. This certification allows these businesses to ensure their customers that their wood and paper products come from well-managed forests. The FSC currently works with a network of national organizations in 34 countries.
