We love our takeaways but hate the waste. What can we do to find a balance? What enables our fast-paced lifestyles and lets us enjoy it with a good conscience? At MM Kotkamills, we actively work for better options to replace plastics in packaging. While many make claims about being best, we with our stakeholders have actually changed the game for good.
