Safety and well-being at work
Our employees have a key role within the company. They are our driving force and determine the success of Inex. That is why we make every effort to stimulate the development of each colleague. This includes a pleasant, safe and healthy working environment where we put maximum effort into the safety and well-being of our people.
Local dairy farmers as suppliers
Inex’s milk comes from 455 dairy farms within a radius of 100 kilometres around Bavegem. Most of them have been supplying us for generations.
We encourage our employees to exercise more: at home, at work and on the way to work. That is why we offer, among other things, (electric) bicycle lease.
For many people, dairy is an important part of their daily diet. Inex is the largest school milk supplier in Belgium, which also makes us a social example.
By paying extra attention to a lower sugar content and more proteins in our product compositions, we also take care of general health and help to combat obesity.
Our staff is strongly committed to charities, such as ‘Kom op Tegen Kanker’ (Stand Up To Cancer). This is engaging and ensures a high level of commitment.
We transport the raw milk from the local farmer to the dairy ourselves. In recent years, we have bought modern and economical, large capacity trailers (27,000 litres). This allows us to travel fewer kilometres to collect the same amount of milk. And minimise our impact on the environment.
By making maximum use of return freight, we also limit the distribution of the end products to our customers (e.g. for the Netherlands plant transport as return freight). A smart move, both ecologically and economically.
Our products are authentic and tasty. Moreover, we continuously monitor food safety and focus more and more on healthy food choices. Many of our dairy products contain no added sugars or are low in sugars. Look at the Nutriscore on our packaging.
Environmentally friendly packaging
Inex has modern and durable packaging that you can use with peace of mind.
Inex cardboard packaging, for example, consists of FSC* approved cardboard. This means that the Forest Stewardship Council not only checked the forest of origin, but also the entire supply chain right up to the final consumer. It therefore offers the absolute guarantee that this paper comes from effectively managed forests.
In 2020, we switched to biobased Tetra packaging for Bambix, which consists of more than 80% plant based materials. This will contribute to reducing resource scarcity and climate change.
Last but not least: Inex is a founding member of Fost Plus, which promotes and coordinates the collection, sorting and recycling of household packaging waste in Belgium.
