Placon has redesigned its HomeFresh Rotisserie Chicken Container to reduce overall usage of petroleum-based resins. The company sought to reduce petroleum-based resins and reengineered the packaging with calcium carbonate filler in the container’s base. Jeff Lucash, Director of Sales - Stock Products, tells us, “Sustainability is, and will continue to be, a large driver of food packaging choices for today’s eco-conscious consumer and retailer.” Companies are continuously in the market for packaging that meets a number of important criteria – from being functional to having shelf impact, all while meeting sustainability objectives.”
