Senior Sustainability Advisor

Edmond Malak’s packaging career started in the early 1990’s designing transportation packaging for the military and the tech industry. As his customer base and reputation for great design evolved, it became imperative for him to expand his knowledge to a full line of packaging equipment, including flexible and rigid packaging.


In 2010, he was approached by Santa Clara County and CalRecycle to act as an advisor to institutional feeding facilities in an effort to reduce waste. This led to a new passion and commitment to understanding the scope of the problem and to educate himself in the core opportunities and technologies available to deal with such a monumental issue. With the proliferation of grab-and-go meals, single serve portions, the convenience economy, and the tremendous amount of organic waste being sent to landfills, he prioritized researching and employing new methods to deal with the sea change within the industry.


Over the past ten years, Edmond has advised clients and reinvented the methods by which they produce and deliver food. From facilities such as California Department of Corrections and Google’s 60 café campus to Meals on Wheels and hundreds of school districts, he has initiated a campaign of impact awareness. A slow, yet steady, change has taken place through the use of more sustainable packaging, the development of organic waste digesters and increasing the shelf life of perishable goods to avoid spoilage.


As Senior Sustainability Advisor at echoSPS, Edmond continues to work with organizations that truly want to be stewards of the environment and allow their decisions to echo through the industry for the long-term good of manufacturers, growers and consumers.
