Yes you can have both. It’s possible to go green while making your bakery more profitable. In fact, going green is a practical business decision.

First, going green means minimising waste. If you reduce waste in your business, the natural result is you’ll also save on production costs. For example, it’s now possible to use a single cardboard box to bake, decorate, portion, freeze, distribute and serve a cake. This will save you money on production, packaging and labour. Also, you won’t need to wash up your baking tins and pans (you save water and soap too).

It’s a win-win solution both for you and the environment (you can visit this page if you want to learn more about this money-saving bakery packaging). In addition, your operations become more organised because most of the processes happen on one surface where you don’t need to transfer the cake from one container to another. There will be fewer mistakes which again means more money saved.

Will it matter to customers?

Customers now prefer environment-friendly businesses. Knowledge and awareness made that possible and customers now want to help even in everyday little ways.

Whether or not your customers care about your business going green, they will still benefit because you can pass on the savings to them or you can better focus on delivering excellent customer service (remember that you will save time and labour because you could bake and serve on the same box). This is a win-win for everyone and this could also help your business become more profitable and sustainable in the long run.

It’s also getting more competitive out there where new bakeries and products come out all the time. To thrive and stay ahead, it’s crucial to make use of all the advantages you can get. From the quality of your cakes, the way you talk with your customers, the look and smell of your bakery and storefront and also all the details and processes in the background including how you save time and money on baking, packaging and serving the cakes. All these advantages combine and accumulate to give you a competitive edge (while helping the environment at the same time).
