Case study

Dairy Crest

Reducing the environmental impact for a large dairy firm


James Ross Consulting assessed packaging used by Dairy Crest and compared this to competitor and allied packaging in use within the UK, European, US and Australian markets. This allowed us to review potential and implications for new formats and supply chain processes in terms of plant, vendors, product, retail (POS) and consumers.

Business Challenge

Dairy Crest asked James Ross Consulting to undertake a review of their Cheese and Spreads packaging to assess opportunities for packaging change to reduce environmental impact. This included a detailed assessment of materials, processes and supply chain and culminated in development of a packaging sustainability strategy document.
