We are CommiTted to Sustainability
In line with our values and pursuit of excellence we continue to search and apply sustainability wherever possible to our processes and practices.
The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established in 2015 to achieve specific sustainability targets by 2030.
They seek to end poverty, protect our planet and ensure prosperity across global community. Businesses across the globe have a critical role to play to contribute to the sustainable future of our planet.
At Tumblar we incorporate these goals into our processes and practices by identifying how they relate to our business operations and what impact that has on our ways of working.
We are committed to sustainability, and will ensure that all facets of our business as well as partnerships we enter into, also support these.

Diversity of Partner Arrangements
We have 3 areas of customer journey:
Often a customer will provide the formula, packaging description, labels and cartons to us in a Product Specification document. We then work with our local chemical suppliers to find if any are already importing or manufacturing those raw materials so that we can find the ANZ best price and an appropriate MOQ. If we cannot achieve our customers expectations then we can work with their global procurement network to find other suppliers. It is a similar approach with the packaging. An example of this would be when we take over manufacturing of a product already in the market.
Sometimes a customer will only have a formula, but is flexible on packaging. In this scenario we would detail our current capability (for example we may currently only make a 12g tube) and provide options to the customer on capability investments for wider options. Different parts of the packaging may have different levels of flexibility – perhaps the SRP has to be exact, but the bottle inside can be anything as the specs haven’t been set. We can provide options and examples to the customer and help them decide the best way forward. We can provide realistic renderings on these options including 3D print of the bottle, etc. An example of this would be when a customer wants to flesh out various options before approving a final product design but does not have the in-house knowledge to flesh out these options without our input.
This is generally when the customer is at the very start of the process and wants to gain manufacturing and pricing advantages by creating a product which is already a capability of ours. We showcase our current capability and provide as many strong options as appropriate to the customer. An example of this is when product design will not affect how the product is purchased and consumed and therefore the customer simply wants something that fits in our current processes to decrease the risk of non-conformances and to ensure a lower cost price.
