More than 70% of Aluflexpack employees work in plants audited according to SMETA/Sedex!

Exiting Announcement – our Croatian companies Aluflexpack novi d.o.o. and Omial novi d.o.o. have recently completed the rigorous 4-pillar SMETA Audit for the year 2023 with great success! The achievement of the SMETA audit is a source of immense pride, affirming our commitment to ethical business practices.


While the assessment was done for Croatian plants, it is highly relevant across our whole Group value chain, as our four Croatian plants have a major Group impact, hosting over 70% of our dedicated employees. Our Drniš plant serves as a converting hub, supplying converted material to other Group members that focus on the refinement of the final product and support of the customers in achieving their packaging success.


The SMETA framework allows us to not only gain valuable insights but also continuously improve working conditions and environmental performance across our business operations and supply chain. Version 6.0 of SMETA delves into critical aspects like temporary work and human rights, aligning with our dedication to excellence in labour conditions, occupational safety, environmental standards, and ethical business practices.
