Providing packaging compliance and data insights for Bodycare

Bodycare has around 6,000 product lines, meaning the collation of weights is a lengthy process, and a high level of precision and knowledge is vital to make their submission as accurate as reasonably possible.


Bodycare has fully outsourced the administrative burden of both collating and submitting their packaging waste data to Valpak.

Valpak has used a variety of techniques to assist with Bodycare’s packaging data submission and to make it as accurate as possible, such as:

  • acquiring weights directly from suppliers for a range of products
  • carrying out weighing days for more product information, particularly for the products that contribute the highest obligation
  • identifying an efficient, personalised methodology that highlights solutions to functional issues such as the reuse of product codes
  • using multiple, thorough quality checks to ensure accuracy
  • liaising directly with the Environment Agency to make the submission on time
