Sustainable Solutions

Eco-Friendly Products.
Comprehensive Guidance.

At Cogent, we collaborate with customers to create and implement eco-friendly packaging, sustainable food packaging, and janitorial programs. Our knowledgeable team supports your business with a comprehensive approach to sustainable packaging products, programs, and supply chain solutions.

A rapidly growing and dynamic catalog of products

Sustainability is important to our business and our industry. The number of options for sustainable packaging is exploding with growth. So our merchandising team is continually expanding our product catalog, adding the latest innovations in sustainably sourced and manufactured products from new suppliers every day.

Solutions and Expert Support.

Our team partners with customers to navigate the growing need for and rapidly changing supply of sustainable packaging and cleaning solutions.

  • Staying in the know: We regularly meet with municipal offices and industry leaders, including the California Grocers Association meetings to stay on top of rapidly changing requirements. We also work closely with suppliers to identify the best solutions for your needs.
  • Designing programs for sustainable commitment and compliance: We help you understand your local environmental legislation and requirements in packaging, food service supply, and janitorial products. Beyond just compliance, we can help you implement a supply and packaging program that you can be proud of and demonstrate to your customers that you are a sustainably committed business.

Sustainably means considering the lifespan.

Sustainability goes well beyond compliance. It’s about the raw materials used and the lifecycle of the product—what are the implications of the product long-term? Our extensive catalog of sustainable products addresses both:

  • Recyclable, Reusable, and Compostable Products: These products a created from raw materials that have a longer life span or better, more eco-friendly end life.
  • Recycled and Renewable Raw Materials: These products are designed and manufactured with recycled and reusable raw materials to reduce the use of virgin materials.

Recycled and Renewable Raw Materials: These products are designed and manufactured with recycled and reusable raw materials to reduce the use of virgin materials.
