Sustainable packaging

The goodness we wrap our delicious cheese snacks with should match the goodness inside every bite! That’s why we’ve taken big steps to make sure we’re committed to always improve, both inside and out.
Our mission is to provide you with a healthy and balanced snack in an eco-friendly packaging, limiting our environmental impact.

Our cheese protecting wrappers are made of cellulose originating from certified forests. That means it’s now home compostable!

Our red wax helps protect and preserve the freshness and flavour of our Babybel. We are also working on eco-friendly alternatives to our famous protective shells.

We use 100% recycled cardboard to deliver our products all over Canada, all of which is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Our red wax helps protect and preserve our cheese. Next up: plant-based wax.

We use 100% recycled cardboard.

Future goals

Every day, we strive to make our packaging more responsible and sustainable to make our wax protected cheese a more sustainable snacking option. We’re on the right track and these are the next steps we’ll be taking:


We’re looking beyond the net for fully recyclable packaging solutions.


We’re even exploring ways to remove the cellophane packaging (while preserving the quality of our products, of course!)


We’re currently reimagining our red wax protective shells in finding ways to use materials that are better for the environment like plant-based wax. Stay tuned!


By 2025, we’re striving to make Babybel®’s cheese packaging 100% recyclable.
