A switch from an EPS to a corrugated insert for product protection during shipping makes Renfro Foods’ gift box more eco-friendly.

Just in time for the busy holiday season, Fort Worth, TX-based Renfro Foods is now using a redesigned, eco-friendly insert within its gift boxes to support the contents during shipping. The corrugated shipping cases hold four-pack varieties of Mrs. Renfro’s-brand gourmet salsa products.

Previously held in place using an expanded polystyrene block, the gift pack’s glass jars will now be protected by a 200# doublewall kraft corrugated insert from Harris Packaging Corp. The insert is made from 30% recycled fibers, is 100% recyclable, and is a sustainable, renewable resource.

“It is important to us that we do what we can to leave a smaller footprint on the environment,” says Doug Renfro, president of Renfro Foods. “Styrofoam takes an incredibly long time to break down in the environment. We’re proud to be able to provide sustainable packaging for our product shipments.”
