Kruger Products has received Walmart Canada’s sixth-annual Vendor Sustainability Award. The award recognizes a company’s sustainability efforts and achievements and applauds its assistance in helping Walmart reach its own sustainability goals. Kruger Products was selected for this prestigious honour from more than 100 other suppliers. “Demonstrating leadership in sustainability and minimizing our environmental footprint through our business processes and the products we sell is incredibly important to us, said Andrew Telfer, Manager, Sustainability, Walmart Canada. “Kruger Products is helping Walmart Canada provide consumers with the affordable green products that they are looking for while helping us reduce our GHG emissions and waste. Kruger Products has also been a great industry leader in creating opportunities for retailers and suppliers to collaborate in their sustainability efforts.”
Pulp & Paper Canada is pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 Safest Mill in Canada contest.
Since 1926, Pulp & Paper Canada has recognized mills that have achieved an outstanding safety record.
As always, the mill with the lowest total recordable incident rate (mill frequency) in each category is the winner of that class for the year and receives a plaque and certificate. In the event of ties, the mills are ranked by the most to least total worker hours.
Congratulations to our category winners below, and to all of our participating mills on their excellent safety records in 2018. May 2019 be your safest yet!

We asked some of our participating mills what safety means to their organizations. For Canadian Kraft Paper, safety “is in everything we do.”
Kruger Products CEO Dino Bianco said, “Working toward a common goal all together. Whatever your role, when it comes to safety, you cannot stand on the sidelines.”
And for Cascades, safety means “Always placing people first while striving towards the achievement of zero harm.”
