Calls For Deposit Scheme After Huge U.K. Can And Bottle Beach Cleanup

August 11, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A massive U.K. beach litter cleanup effort found that nearly two-thirds of the discarded bottles and cans collected had been traced to 12 companies, with Coca-Cola packaging being the most prevalent. The report, by marine conservation charity Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), said other branded packaging pollution came from PepsiCo, AB InBev, McDonald’s, Mondelēz International, Heineken, Tesco, Carlsberg Group, Suntory, Haribo, Mars, and Aldi. Nearly four thousand volunteers collected branded items on 11,139 miles of coastline, making it the U.K.’s biggest coordinated cleanup event. SAS called for legislation creating an “‘all-in” deposit scheme that would hold companies to account and “turn off the tap of plastic and packaging pollution flooding the ocean.” Beverage and other companies have said that a lack of a good deposit return scheme (DRS) in the U.K. means their packaging is needlessly littered.

April 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The third largest non-alcoholic packaged beverage company in North America, which used 208,000 metric tons of plastic packaging in 2018, has agreed to cut its use of virgin plastic for packaging by 20 percent by 2025. Citing new data on the growing plastic pollution problem, Berkeley, Calif.-based nonprofit foundation As You Sow filed shareholder proposals with ten leading consumer goods companies and retailers for 2021, including Keurig Dr Pepper, calling for commitments to reduce use of plastic packaging. KDP told As You Sow it will cut virgin plastic by 20 percent by using more recycled content, eliminating unnecessary material, redesigning packaging, and exploring reuse models.

Keurig Dr Pepper Signs On To U.S. And Canada Plastics Pacts

January 27, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Burlington, Mass.-based beverage company has joined two regional initiatives of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's global Plastics Pact network: the U.S. Plastic Pact and the Canada Plastics Pact. Both bring together major players from across the local plastic value chain to create a circular economy for plastics. The company also recently joined Ocean Conservancy's Trash Free Seas Alliance, which is working toward solutions that will mitigate plastic waste entering the ocean. The company has committed to converting 100 percent of packaging to be recyclable or compostable by 2025, and to use 30 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) content across its packaging portfolio by 2025.

Paper Recyclers Are Beginning To Solve The Problem Of Plastic-Lined Cups And Cartons

December 20, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Because disposable coffee cups, milk cartons, takeout boxes, and other food packages have a plastic lining, most recycling systems in the U.S. can’t handle them. But that is starting to change as the recycled paper industry redesigns its systems to salvage, sanitize, and recycle the paper from these containers. Georgia-Pacific, for example, is equipping two of its 14 facilities to be able to separate the paper from plastic, then recycle it into products like paper towels for restaurants and toilet rolls for commercial buildings. It portends a time when customers will be able to safely throw their Starbucks cups into the recycling bin without having to think twice.

Coca-Cola European Partners Speeds Up Decarbonization Program

December 10, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The British multinational Coke bottler says it is accelerating the decarbonization of its business by reducing absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30 percent from 2019 levels across its entire value chain – including scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions – by 2030. The overall goal is to become a Net Zero business by 2040. The emissions reduction plan affects its entire value chain: ingredients, packaging, operations, transportation, and refrigeration. A major focus will be on a commitment to support strategic suppliers as they set their own science-based carbon reduction targets and use 100 percent renewable electricity. CCEP is investing €250m ($303 million) over three years to implement the plan.

Metal Packaging Boosts Sustainability Credentials Of Snack Brands

December 3, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
According to Laetitia Durafour of Crown Food Europe, snacks packed with sodium and fats will always be popular. But consumers are increasingly demanding healthier options, and they also want the containers to be 100 percent recyclable. Metal packaging is one solution. Once the contents of a metal package have been consumed, the metal can be recycled infinitely without loss of physical properties. Many packaging materials, once recycled, can only be used for a lesser quality product, but a metal recycled today could be back on the retail shelf in the same form. A recent study found that nearly eight in 10 respondents said sustainability is important for them when making a purchasing decision. Ultimately, says Durafour, healthy snacks and metal packaging are a symbiotic match, allowing consumers to consciously choose snacks that will boost their personal health, while also focusing on the health of the planet.

Wildway Sustainability Plan Emphasizes Post-Consumer Recycled Plastic Packaging

October 23, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The San Antonio, Texas-based natural food company is launching sustainable post-consumer recycled packaging designed to prolong the life of plastic, giving it a second use before it reaches a landfill. The new design will roll out this fall in Wildway’s Apple Cinnamon and Banana Nut grain-free granola. The entire product portfolio will be updated by 2023. U.S. recycling companies had been sending plastic trash to China to process, a practice shut down last year. Other countries began to purchase American plastic trash without proper infrastructure in place. “By redesigning our packaging, we are doing what we can to prolong the life of non-recyclable plastics instead of contributing to more single-use plastics that go straight to the landfill, despite what marketing departments claim,” said Wildway CEO Kelli Koehler. Wildway, founded in 2014, produces better-for-you grain-free granolas, hot cereals, and fruit & nut snack mixes made with real-food ingredients.

U.K.’s KP Snacks Rebrands BFY Popchips Snack

October 22, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The savory snack company announced it is relaunching the Popchips brand – not to be confused with a U.S. snack of the same name – with a new look and is moving its production in-house. Popchips products were previously made in the U.K. and Belgium, but will now be made at a new 1,800 square foot facility at KP's Leicestershire base. The snack line includes Barbeque, Sea Salt & Black Pepper, Sour Cream & Onion, and Sea Salt & Vinegar variants. The smaller packs will remove 23 tons of plastic from the supply chain every year, the company says. The new design, debuting in November, "prominently features core ingredients, gives the brand standout and is more fun and relevant", said KP. It also incorporates Popchips' signature tagline, “Popped not Fried.”

Kelp-Based Snacks From 12 Tides Offer Health, Sustainability Benefits

September 25, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Another sign of the ascension of kelp (seaweed) as a healthful component of snacks is the line of organic seaweed puffed snacks from San Francisco-based start-up 12 Tides. The roasted, tissue-thin snacks, available in sea salt, chili, and “everything seasoning” flavors, are made from sustainably harvested North American kelp, which is nutrient dense and supports ocean restoration, according to the company. Kelp can grow up to 18 inches in a day, efficiently absorbing a large amount of carbon from the ocean. The company noted that kelp is a zero-input crop requiring no fertilizers, no fresh water, and no arable land. The kelp is also a different species from the Asian nori seaweed, which has a fishier flavor. “We geared the flavor profile and the texture … toward a mainstream audience and are positioning ourselves as a better-for-you alternative to traditional salty snacks like potato chips,” said founder Patrick Schnettler.[Image Credit: © 12 Tides]

Nespresso Commits To Full Carbon Neutrality By 2022 Across Its Entire Supply Chain

September 17, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Nestlé (Lausanne, Switzerland) brand of capsule coffees and coffee makers has pledged that every cup of Nespresso coffee for at-home and professional customers will be carbon neutral by 2022. The company has been carbon neutral across its business operations since 2017, and the new commitment will tackle emissions that occur in its supply chain and product life cycle. The goal will be achieved by: the reduction of carbon emission; the planting of trees in and around coffee farms where Nespresso sources its coffee (insetting); and through support, and investment in high quality offsetting projects. Nespresso said a broader sustainability program to be announced later this year that will: preserve exceptional coffees, build a resilient and regenerative coffee agriculture system, drive sustainable livelihoods for farmers and build a circular business.[Image Credit: © Nestlé Nespresso SA]

Scottish Snack Company Partners With Farmers To Put “Wonky” Cauliflower To Good Use

September 15, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
As recently as seven years ago, 40 percent of fruit and vegetable waste in the U.K. comprised ugly or “wonky” produce. But consumers, farmers, food makers, and retailers all seem to agree now that ugly vegetables are just as nutritious as the pretty ones, and their use will help reduce waste and make farming greener and more sustainable. An example is a Scottish snack company that has added a cauliflower chip (crisp) to its better-for-you snack line, which includes toasted coconut chips and roasted pulses. Nudie Snacks (Fife) produces the snacks in partnership with Growers Garden, a venture of the East of Scotland Growers collective of 16 farms. The crisps are made from 40 percent fresh, if wonky, cauliflower and come in cheese and caramelized onion and katsu curry flavors. They are low in sugar and roughly 40 percent lower in saturated fat than standard potato crisps.[Image Credit: © Nudie Snacks]

Pringles Hopes To Shed Its “Nightmare” Environmental Packaging Image

September 12, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Kellogg’s brand is revamping its iconic cylindrical packaging in the U.K. to be more environmentally friendly. Pringles was dubbed the greatest villain of the recycling world because of its foil-lined cardboard tubes, metal bases, tear-away lids, and plastic caps – “a nightmare to recycle due to the combination of materials present,” according to the Recycling Association. Kellogg’s is testing a tube made of widely recyclable paper, allowing customers to dispose of the packaging with their regular household recycling. The new tubes are being sold at three Tesco stores in East Anglia as part of a six-week trial. If successful, the tubes (with plastic and cardboard lids) will be introduced to shops more widely across Europe. Kellogg’s pledged in 2018 to make all its packaging reusable, recyclable, or compostable by end of 2025.[Image Credit: © Kellogg NA Co.]

Danone’s Sustainability Efforts Reach Down To Farm Level

As part of its pledge to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, and to achieve 100 percent B Corp. sustainability certification, the French multinational last year launched a coalition to look into the widespread adoption of regenerative agriculture practices in the dairy sector. The company’s global farming expertise manager says he is working on regenerative agriculture projects in 15 countries where Danone sources its milk and vegetable products. The mission, says Cees Jan Hollander, is to show farmers how they can benefit financially, socially, and ecologically by engaging in regenerative farming. “We want to motivate farmers to really work with soil … to make our soils more fertile, and put carbon back into the soil.” Hollander is also interested in technologies that promote emissions reduction among cattle, and to that end is monitoring pilot projects to see which feed additives might be effective and healthy for dairy cattle.[Image Credit: © Danone S.A.]

Nestlé Strengthens Adherence To WHO Standards For Marketing Infant Formula

August 27, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Following 107 reports of Nestlé noncompliance with WHO’s code on responsible marketing of breast milk substitutes (BMS, or infant formula), the company announced it is increasing its transparency on BMS marketing, has corrected noncompliance areas, and is now in compliance. The company said that to reduce non-compliance, it will continue to train employees and third-party workers on the importance of implementing BMS marketing policies. The company also calls for collective action, clear legislation, and enforcement by authorities in the different countries in which it operates. Sixty-one percent of non-compliance in BMS marketing is traceable to a third-party in a direct contractual relationship, but 39 percent of instances are linked directly to Nestlé. [Image Credit: © Nestlé]

A former sustainability expert at Coca-Cola said recently that while companies should try to accommodate customer preferences, that accommodation should not mean compromising sustainability goals. This position contradicts what Coca-Cola’s chief sustainability officer Beatriz Perez told a recent business forum: Coca-Cola “won’t be in business if we don’t accommodate customers” who, for example, might stop drinking Coke if it no longer came in single-use plastic bottles. But, according to Dan Vermeer of Duke University, influential brands such as Coca-Cola are ideally positioned to drive shifts in consumer preferences, pushing even plastic-seeking customers to more sustainable choices. “Brands can lead customers to different choices … [by] limiting available options to more sustainable choices to shift the mainstream away from environmentally or socially damaging products.”[Image Credit: © The Coca-Cola Company]

FrieslandCampina Launches Organic Milk Formula In Hong Kong

August 5, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Dutch dairy cooperative is responding to increased consumer demand for organic products with an “ultra-premium” organic milk formula, dubbed Organic Friso Prestige Bio, to be launched first in Hong Kong prior to a global rollout. The formula, collected from the organic first layer of liquid organic whole milk,  closely resembles original milk nutritionally, but contains natural nutrients, such as sn-2 palmitate, phospholipids, medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), and short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) to help support digestion and overall child development. According to the company, competition in the infant formula space is heating up as vegan and cell-cultured formulas enter the market.[Image Credit: © Royal FrieslandCampina N.V. and its Subsidiaries]

Nestlé Waters NA Says Three More Spring Water Brands Will Be rPET-Packaged

July 16, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Stamford, Conn.-based bottled water company announced that three more of its U.S. still water brands are converting to 100 percent recycled plastic bottles. Though 100 percent recyclable for some time, Ozarka Spring Water, Deer Park, and Zephyrhills bottles will now be made from 100 percent recycled plastic. With the expansion of recycled plastic (rPET) to these brands, nearly 60 percent of all households in the U.S. will have access to a Nestlé Waters regionally distributed spring water brand in bottles made entirely of recycled plastic. All three will include a message on the labels of the 20-ounce, 700 ml, one liter, and 1.5 liter bottles, stating they are both 100 percent recyclable and made from 100 percent recycled plastic. [Image Credit: © Nestlé]

Keurig Dr Pepper Sponsors ”Polypropylene Recycling Coalition”

July 8, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Burlington, Mass., beverage maker said it has committed $10 million over the next five years to improve the recovery and recycling of polypropylene plastic in the U.S. The Coalition’s goal is to solidify polypropylene's status as a standard curbside recycling material through projects that enhance collection, sortation and processing in recycling facilities. The result would be an increase in the value and supply of recycled polypropylene (rPP) and a reduction in the need for virgin plastic in packaging. KDP has also invested in the American Beverage Association's Every Bottle Back initiative, the Closed Loop Fund and several initiatives led by the Recycling Partnership, Keep America Beautiful, and the World Wildlife Fund.[Image Credit: © Keurig Dr Pepper Inc.]

Evian Drops Plastic Label, Debuts Water Bottle With Engraved Logo

July 8, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
As part of its efforts to be a fully circular brand, with all bottles made from 100% recycled plastic by 2025, Evian has launched a label-free 400 ml bottle that features an “Evian pink” bottle cap. Since labels or the adhesives they use are typically non-recyclable, their presence on a bottle complicates recycling. The new Evian bottle sidesteps this by engraving the logo and tag as the bottle is being formed.

This is an elegant solution to the label problem, but raises a couple of issues. One is that the cap is still made from non-recycled material. The other is that the bottle does not have a bar code, which means it cannot yet be sold in stores. Instead, it’s suitable for online sales where barcodes are not needed. As well as restaurants, hotels and hospitality venues.  The company did not provide any insight into the additional cost entailed by this process, but did say the innovation took about two years to implement. The bottle will be available in France beginning this month, and in additional countries from September.

 A Danone research engineer said the new engraved logo preserves the natural beauty of the bottle and brings it “closer to the water’s purity.” “Our revolution makes old plastic the ultimate new innovation,” he added.[Image Credit: © Evian (Danone S.A.)]

Seven Of Sprite’s APAC Markets Have Switched To Clear PET Bottles

July 7, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola has switched from the iconic green Sprite bottled to clear PET bottles in seven APAC countries, following recent expansion to Singapore. Beginning in the Philippines in late 2019, the switch to clear PET bottles has taken place in Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, Fiji, Hong Kong, and now Singapore, where the clear bottles are available in the 500 ml and 1.5 ml formats. The bottles are made with 10 percent recycled PET (rPET) and are 100 percent recyclable. Packaging experts say that while colored PET bottles can be recycled, transparent PET bottles are more valuable in the after-use market. This also means that the plastic can be repurposed or reused many times, creating a circular solution.[Image Credit: © The Coca-Cola Company]

Carlsberg Expects Major Water Savings At New Brewery Recycling Plant

July 1, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Carlsberg expects the newly-opened water recycling plant at its brewery in Fredericia, Denmark, will reduce average water consumption from 2.9 hl of water per hl of beer produced to 1.4hl of water per hl of beer. The new plant will also reduce the brewery’s energy consumption by 10 percent through its own biogas production and the recycling of hot water. Carlsberg also claims that the new plant will accelerate its efforts towards achieving zero water waste, as announced in its Together Towards Zero sustainability program, established in June 2017. The new Fredericia plant is the result of a public-private deal with the Danish partnership for Resource and water-efficient Industrial food Production (DRIP).[Image Credit: © Carlsberg Breweries A/S]

Blake’s Seed Based Broadens Market Reach Beyond People With Food Allergies

June 17, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Chicago-based snack company Blake's Seed Based’s niche market is consumers with food allergies who need snack bars free from the top eight allergens. It’s a big market: more than 32 million people in the U.S. live with food allergies, 90 percent of whom are affected by the top eight allergens. But company founder Blake Sorenson is positioning his company to attract more than people with food allergies, so he is now focusing marketing on the general health benefits of seeds, while appealing to those looking for an alternative to nut–based and granola bars. Consumers are getting more savvy about seeds, which "are still trending," says Sorensen, and his seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, and flax) pack a lot of nutrition per serving (i.e., healthy fats, protein, and fiber). Launched as an online brand, the products can now be found in 1,000 brick–and–mortar stores nationally, often positioned next to category giants such as KIND. Still, the new pandemic-driven stay-at-home lifestyle has forced the company to rethink and strengthen its Direct-to-Consumer marketing strategy: it is building a new website to reflect the change in course.[Image Credit: © Blake's Seed Based]

ZenWTR Goes Nationwide In100 Percent Recycled Ocean Plastic

June 11, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
ZenWTR has rolled out nationwide at Whole Foods stores after picking up regional distribution at chains from Walmart to Safeway over the past couple of months.  The distilled high pH bottled water, packaged in recycled ocean plastic, is available in nearly 5,000 stores including Walmart, Safeway, and H.E.B. and is on course to hit another 20-30,000 doors. ZenWTR sources post-consumer ocean plastic (certified by OceanCycle) through a network of accredited supply partners. It is turned into rPET by California-based recycler CarbonLITE. The beverage goes through a reverse osmosis process before being “vapor distilled,” i.e., boiled to create steam then cooled to a liquid state, and UV treated to create “the purest form of water.” Electrolytes are added for taste.[Image Credit: © Lance Collins/ZEN WTR]

Open Water Achieves “Climate Neutral” Certification, Thanks Partly To Aluminum Packaging

April 30, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Independent nonprofit Climate Neutral, whose mission is to speed up “the transition to a low-carbon world,” has certified Chicago-based bottled water company Open Water as Climate Neutral, meaning the company has achieved net-zero carbon emissions. Open Water, formerly Green Sheep Water, packages its electrolyte-enriched beverage in “infinitely recyclable” aluminum bottles and cans and by using aluminum caps instead of plastic ones. To achieve the certification, the company calculated its 2019 carbon footprint from manufacturing and production through finished product delivery; committed to a plan to cut future greenhouse gas emissions; and invested in two forest conservation projects and in another that collects and destroys methane gas emissions.[Image Credit: © Green Sheep, Inc. dba Open Water | formerly Green Sheep Water]

Bottles Made Using New Enzymatic Recycling Technology Usher In New Sustainability Era

April 9, 2020: 12:00 AM EST


U.K. beverage maker Lucozade Ribena Suntory will soon begin selling some of its most popular soft drink brands packaged in “100 percent sustainable” plastic bottles. Ribena, Lucozade Energy and Lucozade Sport were on track for PET packs that could “better prevent plastic pollution from harming our oceans and planet” LRS said. Bio-industrial solutions company Carbios has developed a process through which a newly created mutant enzyme breaks down PET waste into chemicals that are recycled in an “extremely efficient” manner into high-quality new packaging. The Carbios process heraldas “a real transition to a circular economy,” paving the way for recycling PET fibers. The technology is backed by beverage industry heavyweights, including LRS parent Suntory Beverage & Food Europe, as well as Nestlé Waters and PepsiCo.[Image Credit: © Suntory Beverage & Food Europe (SBFE)]

Whole Leaf Tea From English Tea Shop Comes In New Sustainable Packaging

April 2, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The new sustainable packaging being used by English Tea Shop for its range of Whole Leaf Tea is inspired by the ingredients and colors of Sri Lanka, the source of the tea.
