The Entire Recycling Loop Under One Roof
Together with our business units, we at the Schwarz Group are in a position to independently close recycling loops, so as to address the problem of plastics in a holistic manner. We cover all phases involved in plastics use and recycling, from production through trade and all the way up to recycling management.

The innovative plastics strategy REset Plastic unites all group-wide activities for the first time and serves as a lighthouse project to be followed by others in the future.

As the environmental division of the Schwarz Group, PreZero is active in waste and recycling management. Its services include the collection, sorting, processing and recycling of recyclable materials. With innovative solutions, resources are conserved and the amount of waste that cannot be recycled is reduced towards zero.
Schwarz Produktion produces high-quality private label products, including beverages, chocolate, nuts, dried fruit, baked goods and ice cream for Lidl and Kaufland. Three plastics and recycling plants are central components of a unique recycling loop in which PET bottle bodies are produced predominantly from 100 percent recycled material.
Schwarz Dienstleistungen support Lidl, Kaufland, Schwarz Produktion and PreZero: By bundling various administrative and operational services – for example in areas such as controlling, finance, human resources or procurement – they realise synergy potential and act in an efficient, sustainable manner.
