Berry provides recycled plastic for Philadelphia packs


Berry Global Group is collaborating 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 Berry’s Consumer Packaging International Division, said: “We are pleased to partner with Mondelēz International in providing packaging made from this advanced recycling technology.

“This is an exciting project which demonstrates our ability to supply a leading worldwide brand with a solution to not only aid in their sustainability commitments, but which also aligns with Berry’s,” said Galvez.

Last year, Berry committed that 100% of its fast-moving consumer goods packaging would be reusable, recyclable, or compostable by the year 2025.

Other sustainability initiatives from the plastic packaging giant include investment in both mechanical and chemical recycling, the innovative use of recycled material in products, and global commitments to address plastic waste in the environment.
