We are a global leader in packaging, recycling and logistics for a better world
In 1948 Leon Pratt saw apple growers had a problem: wood crates were a heavy and expensive way to transport apples.
His solution: a cardboard box that was just as sturdy but much lighter. It was here in Shepparton, Victoria amongst the region’s fruit growers that Visy was born.
We went on to make an even better box—made from 100% recycled content. As we grew, we partnered with our customers to develop other packaging for their iconic brands. From Australia's first milk bottle with 50% recycled plastic to 90% recycled glass bottles, sustainability remains at our heart.
Our vision is to be the global leader in creating sustainable packaging solutions for a better world. To deliver this vision, we’re investing over $2 billion to transform recycling and remanufacturing. Our investment means more recycling, less landfill and thousands of new green collar jobs.
Across 150 sites, our 7,000 employees are powering the circular economy by closing the loop on recycling, remanufacturing and logistics. Our values underpin our business and guide our employees every day.
Driven by long term sustainability
At Visy, we are more than the packaging we make, the containers we recycle or the goods we transport. We are driven by achieving long term sustainability for our people, our customers and our planet. While sustainability has been at the heart of our business since our inception, we continue to make significant investments to improve our products and performance.
