Biodegradable Food Packaging
As consumer demand rises for eco-friendly packaging, brand owners in the food industry, are offering sustainable alternatives. To qualify as environmentally friendly, packaging can be recyclable, compostable, biodegradable, or a combination of the three.
Compostable Food Packaging
Given the need for special safety and sanitation standards, developing eco friendly packaging solutions in the food and beverage industry can be challenging.
Eco Friendly Packaging & Poly Replacements
As more brands seek to adopt environmentally conscious practices, the demand for eco friendly packaging increases. Poly replacement coatings for food packaging have historically been more expensive than standard poly materials.
Paper Coating for Packaging
Many major brands have come to realize the importance of using quality packaging that helps to either control or change the public’s perception of their products. These brands are also focusing on shifting consumer demands, as sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging solutions become more and more popular.
Reducing Plastics and PVC in Packaging
Plastics have been a major packaging material for over 40 years. In the last 25 years, the use of plastics has come into question. As the millennial generation demands more attention to the environmental impact of consumer products, the need for plastic substitutes and replacements is growing.
Taking the Eco Friendly Packaging Leap
Retailer, packaging experts and manufacturers across the United States are increasingly turning to new alternatives to replace plastic packaging. This shift in the market is fueled by supply side factors detailed in Sierra’s Eco-Friendly Packaging E-Book.
Why Raw Material Planning in Manufacturing is Essential
