American Licorice Company is a proud recipient of the WRAP of the Year award for the past 10 years, from 2002 to 2011!
The Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP) is administered by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle): “WRAP provides an opportunity for California businesses and nonprofit organizations to gain public recognition for their outstanding waste reduction efforts and lets the community know the business takes waste reduction seriously. WRAP evaluates the waste reduction, procurement, and education activities in the internal business practices of the applicant… ‘WRAP of the Year’ recognizes ten of the best examples of these efforts, which serve as waste management models to the rest of their industry.”
