"Uzaje was born of a conviction: reuse must become a reality in our daily lives and in economic models. Reuse brings many benefits: waste reduction, better resource management, protection of our health and the environment, while generating growth and new jobs; it's an important component of healthier, more sustainable food for all.
Consumers have high expectations and citizens are becoming more aware of the need to change the way we use packaging, to move from single-use to a circular economy. With the AGEC and EGALIM laws and the European Single-Use Plastics Directive, targets for accelerating the introduction of packaging reuse have been clearly defined. Territories are mobilizing and committing themselves to waste reduction and more sustainable food models.
Uzaje has become the benchmark in reuse for the food service and food industry. We help our customers to implement alternatives to disposable packaging, thanks to the industrial infrastructure needed to deploy reuse. Our industrial cleaning centers can handle a wide variety of containers with high standards of hygiene and quality. Thanks to our R&D (Research and Development) efforts, we make reuse environmentally and economically efficient, while creating jobs that cannot be relocated.
Uzaje's challenge is to facilitate the re-use experience for consumers and the transition to these new industrial schemes for companies. Committed to the values of the Social and Solidarity Economy, we show that it is possible to place environmental impact at the heart of business and society.
