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
