Single Use Food Packaging – DelMonte Explains Plastic Use Goals

A January 25, 2022 DelMonte news release reports that the company is working “… to reduce the footprint of our packaging by investing in new materials and redesigning existing materials … only 4% of our packaging by weight contains any plastics; the rest is fully recyclable steel, glass or paper based … we’re working to develop a compostable fruit cup as well as beverage and fruit cups that contain post-consumer recycled content … we aim to: By 2025: Include 25% recycled content into plastic packaging once recycled polypropylene supply is available and FDA approval is received; Add How2Recycle® icons to 100% of our packaging. By 2030: Convert plastic packaging to 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable …” @DelMonte #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #Recycling
