Berry Global Group has announced a collaboration with Mondelēz International to supply packaging containing recycled plastic for Philadelphia cream cheese. The package contains plastic material recovered using advanced recycling technology from Berry’s partnership with SABIC, announced earlier this year.
Jean-Marc Galvez, president of consumer packaging, international division, Berry, commented: “We are pleased to partner with Mondelēz International in providing packaging made from this advanced recycling technology. By recovering and diverting plastic that would have otherwise been sent to landfill or incineration, we are working towards our common goal of promoting a circular economy.”
The announcement adds to Berry’s list of initiatives to advance towards a more sustainable future. These initiatives include investment in both mechanical and chemical recycling, the use of recycled material in products, and global commitments to address plastic waste in the environment. Last year, Berry committed that 100% of its fast-moving consumer goods packaging would be reusable, recyclable, or compostable by the year 2025.
“This is an exciting project which demonstrates our ability to supply leading worldwide brand with a solution to not only aid in their sustainability commitments, but which also aligns with Berry’s,” Galvez concluded.
