Ever since the very beginning [115 years ago], Yazoo has always kept quality control as a top priority in the company.  We understand and realize that it’s not about the quantity that a customer orders but about the quality they receive with every single product they order.  From raw materials to finished products, we demand quality.  Quality, reliability, and consistency are a way of life at Yazoo.

All of our products are manufactured from 100% recycled paperboard which comes from the best-in-class mills in North America.  We hold all of our raw material suppliers to
very strict tolerances in order to produce high-quality, consistent products for our customers.

We have a quality control system in place for inspecting and testing of all raw materials before and during processing.  This system provides assurance that the materials continue to meet the physical, chemical, functional, visual, and dimensional requirements needed for the customer.  Our employees complete inspection checks and testing on all materials that are used to manufacture our products.  We also do testing on finished paper tubes and cores as well.  Our quality assurance streamlines production and helps ensure that the final products meet our quality criteria.  Our employees perform many extensive tests outlined in our Quality Assurance Manual.

A few benefits of quality control are: increased customer loyalty, ability to gain repeat business as well as new customers from referrals, strengthen market stance, reduction in production cost, encourage quality consciousness, and much more.

“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.”– Aristotle

“Quality is more important than quantity.  One home run is much better than two doubles.” – Steve Jobs

Our country has been focusing its recycling efforts more and more each year and thankfully, it has become a priority on most people’s list.  At Yazoo Mills, we recognize the important job we have to help keep our environment clean.

To create our sustainable packaging products, we only use 100% certified recycled paperboard and we have the paperwork to prove it.  We recycle all waste generated during our manufacturing process.  The process includes: shredding, baling, and shipping to a consuming recycle paper mill and then receive the recycled paperboard back.  North America recycles over 4.5 million tons of recovered fiber recycled into 100% recycled paperboard.

Did you know?

The amount of paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years.
Approximately 1 billion trees worth of paper are thrown away every year in the U.S.
Each ton (2,000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy, and 7,000 gallons of water.  This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution.

There is no other packaging product that is more environmentally sustainable than 100% recycled paperboard.  The important fact is that 100% recycled paperboard is truly 100% recycled, with no virgin fiber content.

“The greatest threat to our planet is believing someone else will save it.” – Robert Swan
