CPG Companies Increasing use of Eco-Friendly Packaging
Until all packaging is biodegradable, there’s a possible middle ground.
Michelle McAndrews, marketing director at organic food maker Kate’s Real Food, told FI the company sees real promise in post-consumer recycled materials.
“We are currently running trial packages that incorporate 30% post-consumer recycled materials and plan to do more of this in the very near future,” McAndrews said. “We have also made other packaging changes that reduced our plastic use by about 15% and removed non-recyclable plastics like PVDC from our packaging.
