More than 90 billion of food packaging are produced in France each year, and as many end up as waste to be treated. Being aware that waste production and end-of-life management can be both energy-consuming, environmentally and sanitary harmful, Uzaje has decided to take action.

Uzaje offers industrial cleaning solutions and logistics support to set up reuse schemes in order to replace single-use packaging. Uzaje proposes a turnkey and durable solution for distribution experts relating to commercial distribution, mass catering (canteen), food retail, food and no-food industry such as cosmetic. Uzaje can take action at different stages of the process: packaging choice, logistics (system and transportation), high-efficiency cleaning and deposit management. Thanks to its solution, Uzaje is strongly involved in waste reduction, using durable materials, mainly glass and inox, and working with low-consumption technology. Besides, Uzaje participates in lowering plastic exposure in the food industry, whose sanitary impacts are currently neither well-known nor well-controlled.
