Well thought out: environmentally friendly packaging
Eco-friendly packaging: Made in Switzerland
You have probably heard of the “Swiss Made” designation of origin for products from Switzerland. There are legal regulations that various goods and services must meet to bear this seal of quality. In order to be able to describe our packaging as “Swiss Made,” 60 percent of our manufacturing costs have to be incurred in Switzerland. The essential manufacturing step must also take place here in Switzerland.
60 percent would be enough for our packaging products to bear the “Swiss Made” label. But we would not be Model if we did not give 100 percent.
Because “Swiss Made” means more to us: Our value chain remains 100 percent in Switzerland, from the raw material to the end product. This is how we can guarantee our customers a sustainable, closed paper cycle: Today, Model packaging consists of more than 85 percent recycled fibers, and we are constantly optimizing the process. Find out more about the closed paper cycle.
Swiss Label: locally connected
For us, sustainability is closely linked to our connection to our location. We emphasize this through our membership in the Swiss Label association. This association promotes Swiss products and services and shows you, the customer, the connection to Switzerland in a simple, friendly way.
