Mother Dairy Fruit & Vegetable Pvt. Ltd. (MDFVPL) has reaffirmed its commitment to a cleaner environment by pledging to become a plastic waste neutral company by FY2023-24, which means the company will collect, recycle, or co-process the same amount of plastic waste used in its product packaging each year.

In order to do this, the Company has established a goal of recycling/co-processing over 7,000 MT of post-consumer used plastic waste by the end of FY2022-23.

Mother Dairy launched its plastic waste collection, recycling, and co-processing initiative in Maharashtra in FY2018-19 as part of the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) programme, and expanded it to include Multi-Layered Plastic Waste (MLP) in FY2019-20, in accordance with the Plastic Waste Management (PWM) Rules 2018 as amended.

For the implementation of the National EPR framework, the Company has been working closely with its suppliers and leading Waste Management Agencies (WMA), according to The Free Press Journal.
