Berry Global will be discussing its newly outlined sustainability initiatives at PACK EXPO.
“We truly believe in the importance of and take seriously our role in sustainability,” says Tom Salmon, chairman and CEO of Berry. “As such, we are reaffirming our commitment to creating a more sustainable future by always advancing our material performance, manufacturing processes and partnerships.”
In support of its commitment, Berry now offers fully recyclable options for all of its packaging product lines. In addition, the company is introducing new products with increased recycled content (PCR).
"We are continuing to increase PCR in our products. Our belief is this will drive incremental demand, stimulate the recycling industry and help justify reinvestment in recycling infrastructure," continues Salmon.
Examples of Berry’s sustainability innovation include:
- Bottles, Jars, Tubes, and Closures: Berry’s newly launched Verdant brand offers personal care brands packaging options with PCR content ranging from 25 percent to 100 percent.
- Beverage Closures: Berry has delivered significant innovation in material reduction, liner elimination, and resin composition to reduce weight, in addition to working with beverage brand owners to deliver on their next-generation closure goals.
- Shrink Film: In a recent Berry case study, one customer achieved a 64 percent reduction in secondary packaging material and 73 percent fewer trucks delivering materials. Plus, a 300 percent increase in sales since releasing the new packaging.
- Flexible: Material engineered with up to 85 percent renewable content is available from Berry for flexible packaging.
“We look forward to continuing our work with industry organizations and brand owners as together we innovate new processes and products that will deliver more sustainable packaging,” says Salmon.
