Perspective

Video – Katherine Davidson on the largest company you’ve never heard of that’s helping you use less plastic


Did you pick up a coffee this morning, or a shopping bag? Use a hand sanitiser or a face mask? If the answer is yes, you may well have come into contact with products supplied by Bunzl.

The “largest company you’ve never heard of” is the focus of this video, the latest in our series where we explore company stories and demonstrate the importance of looking beyond simply how profitable they are in the short term.

The London-listed multinational’s product range includes disposable items such as cups, food containers and bags, so it’s close to one of the world’s biggest problems: the proliferation of plastics in our landscapes, oceans and food chains. It sits in the middle of the supply chain, between the manufacturer and the businesses that are using its products, so it’s in a good position to influence both sides to make sustainable changes.

Watch the video to learn how being close to the problem also puts them at the heart of the solution.
