Jagabee “Green Project” 3rd edition! In 2024, forest conservation activities will continue and a new limited design Moomin package will be released! Review of some container formats to reduce
petroleum-derived plastics by approximately 11%
Stores will be gradually switched from around July 1, 2024.
……
Calbee Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President and CEO: Makoto Ebara) is the third project in the “Green Project,” which is one of the “Jagabee Happee3 Projects” that develop environmentally friendly initiatives and plans to enjoy nature. We will carry out. This time, we will be launching a collaboration package with Moomin, which was popular last year (as soon as it runs out, it will become a regular package), and we will be running a campaign where you can win original goods. Following the first and second rounds, we will donate a portion of the sales of Jagabee eligible products and continue to support forest conservation activities on Borneo, a major palm oil producing area. Furthermore, by switching from the 38g stand pack type Jagabee, which is the product targeted for this campaign, to a new packaging format that does not have a zipper, we have reduced petroleum-derived plastics by approximately 11%*. *Compared to our conventional product

It also has a high affinity with the “Green Project,” whose theme is “nature.” For the 38g stand pack type, the container format has been revised to reduce the amount of petroleum-derived plastic used.

【background】
From 2023, “Jagabee”, a Finnish-born story “Moomin” that is loved all over the world and will celebrate its 80th anniversary in 2025, is known as “Jagabee”, where you can enjoy the taste of potatoes and its unique crunchy texture. We are developing the Happee3 Project. The project consists of three projects: “Green Project”, “FAN & FUN Project”, and “Pass the Happee Project”, and the characters “Snufkin”, “Little My”, and “Moomin” are appointed as ambassadors for each project.
This time, as the third installment of the “Green Project”, a collaboration package with the theme of “Moominvalley turned into a jungle”, a story from the Moomin comic series, has been released. In a campaign coinciding with the release, a portion of the sales of eligible Jagabee products and 1 yen for each repost posted on social media will be donated to forest conservation activities on the island of Borneo, a major producer of palm oil. We will continue to do so. In addition, we are also preparing a limited-time release of AR (augmented reality) photo frames of “Moomin” and “Jagabee” and a giveaway campaign where you can win an original tote bag. This initiative is being developed with the hope that people will pick up our products through collaboration packages and campaigns, and feel free to participate in environmentally conscious efforts through familiar products.
In addition, the 38g stand pack product uses a new packaging format without a zipper, aiming to reduce the amount of petroleum-derived plastic used. The Calbee Group has set “consideration for the global environment” as one of the important issues (materiality) in conducting sustainability management, and as part of this, we are promoting “reducing the environmental impact of plastics.” As a brand that promotes environmental friendliness, we will gradually make the switch, starting with some Jagabee stand pack products.

~Jagabee’s environmental initiatives~
Until now, the “Jagabee” brand has been promoting environmentally friendly initiatives, such as using biomass ink and FSC-certified paper for its packaging. For the box type, efforts such as the adoption of the printing method “Ecolaster (R)” *1, which reduces the origin of ink raw materials and CO2 emissions during the printing process by approximately 34% compared to conventional printing methods, were praised. We received the Japan Star Award/Japan Packaging Technology Association Chairman’s Award at the 2022 Japan Packaging Contest sponsored by the Japan Packaging Technology Association.
We are also expanding our initiatives, including the use of
RSPO-certified palm oil (mass balance method)*2, which is
environmentally and human rights friendly, and the launch of “Jagabee Pieces”*3, which aim to reduce food loss. In May 2023, we launched the Jagabee “Green Project” as an initiative for further environmental consideration through the “Jagabee” brand.
