Our Impact: Sustainable Packaging

What NIKU Farms is Doing

NIKU Farms previously took an uncompromising step forward towards reducing our ecological footprint and became the first meat-shipping company in Canada to switch all of our insulation packagings to the sustainable Green Cell Foam. For more in-depth information on what Green Cell Foam is, take a look at our previous post here.

Over the last many months, NIKU Farms has successfully prevented over 44,000 lbs of EPS (expanded polystyrene, like STYROFOAM) from entering landfills and polluting the environment. For scale: 44,000lbs is the equivalent to 44 polar bears, 440 large male deers, or 4,400 large sacks of potatoes. The consumer industry is extremely fast-paced and the waste generated by this system is astronomical. From the beginning, we have strived to set a new standard for the delivery industry and are proud to showcase the impact our initiative has made thus far.

We would like to thank each and every one of you in the NIKU Farms community for supporting and choosing sustainability. We are strong believers that everything makes a difference no matter the size, and we are committed to furthering the positive impact of our company.
