Berry Global (Evansville, Indiana / USA; www.berryglobal.com) is collaborating with longtime customer Mondelez International (Deerfield, Illinois / USA; www.mondelezinternational.com) to supply plastic packaging for world-leading cream cheese brand “Philadelphia”. The packaging contains plastics recovered using chemical recycling technology through Berry’s partnership with Sabic (Riyadh / Saudi Arabia; www.sabic.com – see Plasteurope.com of 02.12.2019).

“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 Jean-Marc Galvez, president of Berry’s Consumer Packaging International division.

Berry has previously announced a series of initiatives to enhance sustainability, including investments in both mechanical and chemical recycling, using recycled material in products as well as global commitments to address the problem of plastics waste in the environment. Last year, the US group pledged that 100% of its packaging for fast-moving consumer goods would be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.
