UK supermarket leader Sainsbury’s has developed an innovative new packaging format for their fresh produce that withstands the existing distribution and supply-chain processes while at the same time enhancing the consumers’ experience.
Lundberg Family Farms of Richvale, CA, a leading producer of organic rice and rice products, is a 2011 recipient of the Responsible Packaging Award for its use of 100% recycled paperboard with 65% post consumer recycled content packaging.
A 5 lb. soft mesh bag (high graphic film 120mm width) from Giro Pack contains 8.01 grams of recyclable plastic compared to a traditional 5 lb. poly bag (1.5 mil) with 10.26 grams of plastic, providing 21.9% less packaging material.
Renewable thermoformed produce packaging developed by Clear Lam Packaging, Inc. has earned the industry’s first U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Product Label, part of a new voluntary labeling program to help purchasers choose products made with biobased commodities.
