Anchor Packaging recently joined the Cyclyx Consortium at Cyclyx International with the goal of increasing the recyclability of plastic from 10 percent to 90 percent. This is just one move the company has made to increase the sustainability of its packaging.

Richard Daniels, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Custom Products, Anchor Packaging"Partnering with Cyclyx was an easy decision because their mission and extensive experience enable us to accelerate our work in advancing foodservice sustainability,” said Richard Daniels, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Custom Products at Anchor Packaging. "Anchor Packaging values our role in this work. While packaging's carbon footprint is just a small fraction of the meal itself, in many cases less than 1 percent, it is uniquely positioned to provide an outsized benefit by protecting food quality to prevent food waste. Improving the recovery of valuable, recyclable food-grade materials only adds to the positive impact packaging provides."

Anchor now manufactures using only high-performance materials to reduce food waste. The company focuses production on two of the most highly recyclable plastic packaging materials—polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
