“The convenient return-to-retail packaging recovery system perfected by the Ontario brewing industry continues to provide an excellent example of how smart business embraces environmental responsibility. The Beer Store system involves co-operation by the entire supply chain to ensure that distribution of full goods is complemented with back-haul recovery of reusable and recyclable packaging – an approach that offers tremendous environmental and bottom line gains.”
