A faulty batch of leaking take away imported coffee cups that left a big ringed stain on the desk started the West Metro journey. After our favorite coffee shop owner was stuck with a container of faulty imported cups we started thinking – why couldn’t we create better, cleaner and more clever packaging products by capitalizing on Australia’s strong manufacturing base. We used to be known as the ‘clever country’ didn’t we?
We created a small company that would focus on sustainability by locally manufacturing packaging products to compete on value for money and not just price.
Profit will make our business sustainable but most important to us at West Metro is our community. In supplying our quality packaging products we have tried to move away from purely financial thinking so that our activities also support the community – that is, the wider society and environment that we operate in.
We at West Metro Packaging Co base our concept of “how we like to do things” on the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) accounting framework. The TBL provides the fundamental three Ps – People, Planet and Profit.
We support Australia’s strong legal and regulatory requirements in relation to trade, labour and equality.
We support the local food model and seek to buy and source our services locally.
West Metro trusts that you will enjoy our flagship product the ‘GreenBox’, and thank you for supporting the community by choosing West Metro products.
